Hilda Baci breaks Guinness World Record for ‘longest cooking time’
Nigerian chef, , popularly known as Hilda Baci, has broken the Guinness World Record for the “longest cooking marathon by an individual”.
The chef, on Monday morning, smashed the 87 hours 45 minutes record set by now-former Guinness World Record holder, Lata Tondon.
Hilda launched into the competition on Thursday at exactly 4pm when she put on her cooker.
Hilda carries on despite having broken the record as she aims to cook for 96 hours, setting a new world record as the first human on earth to spend such an amount of time cooking.
The restuarer has continued to receive a wave of support from government officials, celebrities, clerics, and other well-meaning Nigerians.
This is even as Nigerians stood by her despite a heavy downpour in the wee hours of Monday.
Former Governor of Akwa-Ibom State, Senator Godswill Akpabio, joined a host of other Nigerians on Monday to cheer Nigerian chef, Hilda Bassey Effiong, better known as Hilda Baci, who broke the Guinness World Record for longest cooking hours by an individual.
Shortly after she clinched the world record, Senator Akpabio stormed the venue and cheered the 27-year-old who also hails from Akwa Ibom.
During the visit, Akpabio promised to reward Hilda.
Sharing on his Twitter page, Akpabio wrote, “I was this morning accompanied by my colleagues Senators-elect, on a solidarity visit to an Akwa Ibom child, Hilda Baci, who is set to break the Guiness Book of record as the Chef with the longest cooking duration in the world.
”I pray for her success and I promise to reward her at the end of the event. I thank her for exhibiting the Can Do Spirit of the Akwa Ibom child. FORWARD EVER, BACKWARD NEVER.”
