Guinness World Record has stated the impact Nigerian chef, Hilda Effiong Bassey, aka Hilda Baci’s cook-a-thon had on their website.
According to GWR, the cook-a-thon by Hilda crashed their website for two days.
A representative of the record body disclosed this in a statement on Tuesday while officially certifying Hilda as the new record holder for the longest cooking marathon by an individual.
The representative said their website crashed because of the immense volume of traffic received from Hilda’s legion of loyal fans.
“Hilda’s cook-a-thon was in fact so popular that our website crashed for two days due to the immense volume of traffic we received from her legion of loyal fans,” the rep said.
Recall that Guinness World Record failed to certify Hilda’s 100-hour-kitchen stint, acknowledging just 93 hours 11 minutes.
The record body said it deducted seven hours from her record because “she mistakenly took extra minutes for one of her rest breaks early on in the attempt.”
