Confirm with us before making any attempt — Guinness World Records warns Participants

In the wake of marathons, after chef Hilda Baci has declared the Guinness World Record holder for the longest cooking marathon, with a time of 93 hours 11 minutes, a lot of Nigerians have applied to the Guinness World Record, attempting to break their own records.

Currently, an Ondo-based chef, Adeola Adeyeye is attempting a 150-hour cook-a-thon with hopes to hit 150 hours by July 7.

Reacting to this, Guinness World Record decided to send a polite reminder to all attempting to break a world record to have their title confirmed by the organisation so as not to end up wasting their time.

GWR in a post on their official Twitter page wrote;

“polite reminder that you should probably have your world record title confirmed by our team before attempting it, here’s how our process works ?“

The tweet has garnered reactions from social media users, particularly Nigerians, who believed it was a subtle shade at all attempting to break a record.

Here are some reactions below:

@Harcourt reacted: “They made this post because of Nigerians.”

@AbdulWasih said: “Just say “Dear Nigerians”, stop going thru the corners.”

@IchieZeb commented: “But some records in GWR were not confirmed or applied before they were set.”
