It is yet to be confirmed if Danny officially applied fro approval from the Guinness World Records before attempting to become a record holder.
Last week, GWR issued a short statement to people attempting to break world records. The statement followed after Danny Zara, another Cameroonian, announced her intention to set a world record for the longest-sex marathon.
Some Nigerians have also been giving the GWR a shot since Hilda Baci edged out her predecessor to set a new time for the longest cooking marathon by an individual.
In May, Baci cooked for 100 hours to dethrone the record of 87 hours 45 minutes previously set by Lata Tondon, an Indian, in 2019.
Shortly after, Damilola Adeparusi, another chef, embarked on a five-day cooking marathon.
Adeyeye Adeola also attempted to break Baci’s record with a 150-hour cooking marathon.
In the same vein, Temitope Adebayo, a chef based in Ibadan, announced his intention to cook for over 120 hours.
Hassan Joshua Bature, a computer science lecturer at the Federal University, Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE), also revealed plans to undertake a 150-hour teaching marathon.
