Baci made the statement in response to fans who questioned why she removed the phrase “Guinness World Record holder” from her social media bio.

The Akwa-Ibom-born chef took to her X handle to explain that she updated her bio just as her predecessor “respectfully acknowledged” her as the new record holder by updating her bio.

She also praised her successor, Fisher, who cooked nonstop for an incredible 119 hours and 57 minutes, breaking her record by more than 24 hours.

Baci wrote, “Just as Chef Lata respectfully acknowledged the new record holder by updating her bio and later fine-tuning the wording, I’ve adjusted mine too.

“Achieving such a record is no small feat, and I know this firsthand. I have only the greatest admiration for the hard work it took for Alan to reach such heights. Sportsmanship is about recognizing progress, whether the accolade is in my bio or not. I remain a record holder in spirit and in history. Let’s celebrate achievement and the spirit of competition.”
