Guinness World Records has finally confirmed the application of Chef Damilola Adeparusi better known as Dammy after cooking for 120 hours.
In an information sent to Legit.ng on Friday, June 16, the GWR said the body is now in possession of Chef Dammy’s application and would review her evidence.
Chef Dammy has now sent an application to the Guinness World Records after completing her cookathon, Legit.ng understands.
This is coming after the Guinness World Records confirmed to Legit.ng on Wednesday, June 14, that the chef did not apply before starting to cook in her 120-hour cookathon. This is contrary to reports suggesting that she may have applied before she started cooking.
Chef Dammy embarked on a courageous cooking journey which organisers said lasted for 120 hours between June 9 and 13. In the latest information made available to Legit.ng on Friday, June 16, the Guinness World Records said the body is now in possession of Dammy’s application.
GWR PR manager, Madalyn Bielfeld, told Legit.ng:
“I can confirm that Chef Dammy has now made an application.”
Also, the GWR told Legit.ng that the body would ensure Dammy understands how to submit her evidence and that the evidence would be reviewed.
The body wrote: “We will ensure she understands the process and method to submit the evidence. We will then reviews this quickly.”
This is coming after Chef Dammy told the BBC Yoruba that she did not cook for Guinness World Records or to be a record holder.
She also said she was not competing with Hilda Baci. Dammy told BBC Yoruba: “I just love cooking.” Earlier on Friday, June 16, FIJ quoted the GWR as saying it was “aware” of Dammy’s cookathon and that evidence could be submitted after a record attempt has been completed.
The body told FIJ:
“We are aware of Chef Dammy’s cooking marathon. It is possible to submit evidence after a record attempt has been completed.”
Only the Guinness World Records can confirm that she cooked for 120 hours and take a decision after Dammy must have submitted her cookathon evidence.
