Nigerians have been at the forefront of making history, breaking records, and holding Guinness World Records, as Hilda Baci set a new record for the longest cooking marathon by an individual.
Guinness World Records, published from its inception in 1955 until 1999 as The Guinness Book of Records and in previous United States editions as The Guinness Book of World Records, is a British reference book published annually, listing world records for both human achievements and the extremes of the natural world.
The brainchild of Sir Hugh Beaver, the book was co-founded by twin brothers Norris and Ross McWhirter in Fleet Street, London, in August 1955.
