In order to become famous and also leave behind a legacy, people have tried doing the craziest things to appear in the Guinness World Records.

Some have tried singing for 200 hours non-stop, having the longest concerts by a solo artist, or by even crying for the longest hours. 

One of the records that is closer to home is by Maliha Mohammed, a Kenyan chief, and a former Guinness world record holder who cooked for a record of 75 hours back in 2019.

On Friday 11th August, the mother of two announced that she wanted to try and break another world record.

After an epic cooking standoff that lasted for 3 days and 23 hours, Maliha was able to set a new record.  after breaking the previous record of 68 hours, 30 minutes, and 2 seconds, she posted on her social media platform how excited she was to have accomplished her goal.

Even after such accomplishment, Guinness World Record has still not ratified it as it normally takes nearly a month to do so.

The reason? Guinness has to follow certain criteria before they can award the title of one being a World record holder.

Another issue that has popped up is exactly which record she broke. Is it the longest solo cooking chef or is it the longest home solo cooking? 

The question on most of her fans' minds right now is why the Guinness Book of Records can't acknowledge her for breaking both records since she is a recognized chief and she also broke the longest home cooking record.

Will they reduce the time as they did in Hilda Baci's case when they reduced the number of hours, she did 100 hours and Guinness only acknowledge 93 hours. What will be the fate of Maliha Mohammed as she cooked for 95 hours?
