Don’t make this a competition – former Cookathon record holder pleads

By Emmanuel Oti Acheampong

Indian chef and former Guinness World Record holder for longest hour of cooking marathon, Lata Tondoh has pleaded with Africans and Nigerians especially, not to make the record-breaking feat chalked by Hilda Bassey a competition between India and Nigeria, asking for peace among both countries on the internet.

“A humble Request to all my sisters and Brothers in Nigeria and India to maintain peace and wait for Guinness to officially announce if the current record is broken or not. Please don’t make it a competition. It’s just a record my friends. I am a peace loving person and wish same for you,” she tweeted.

Miss Lata Tondoh took to her official Twitter handle to make this passionate appeal after a Nigerian Chef, Hilda Bassey on May 15, 2023 broke her record of 88 hours of cooking. Miss Bassey completed her four-day cooking marathon with over 100 hours, preparing over three hundred different dishes and serving over three thousand people without a break.

Though the Guinness World Record tweeted that Miss Bassey’s exploit is yet to be reviewed before confirming a record breaker, netizens have flooded the internet with pictures and quotes, announcing her as the record breaker with some threatening that they won’t accept any annulment of record or whatsoever.

Miss Bassey’s journey to beat Linda Tondoh’s world record began on Thursday, May 11, 2023, at 4 pm and ended on Monday, May 15, 2023, at 8 pm. This saw lots of Nigerians and Ghanaians throw support behind her to see her beat that record, with most Nigerian celebrities thronging to her cooking place to be served the dishes she prepared.
