Nigerian dancer and World Guinness Record holder Kafayat Oluwatoyin Shafau, better known as Kaffy, has revealed reasons for Guinness World Records’ perceived delay in verifying Hilda Baci’s record.
Guinness World Records on Monday said it would have to conduct reviews before acknowledging the longest cooking marathon by an individual, set by Nigerian chef Hilda Baci.
Speaking on the Guinness World Records’ perceived delay, Kaffy, who set the Guinness World Record for “Longest Dance Party” in 2006, said technical errors could prevent people from getting verified by Guinness World Records.
Kaffy, who spoke via social media, said it took almost two weeks for Guinness World Records to confirm her feat in 2006.
She wrote: “A lot of people attempt and succeed in beating timelines but don’t get verified because of technical errors.”
She prayed that technical errors would not ruin Hilda’s attempt.
