Nigerian chef, Hilda Effiong Bassey, 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 Guinness World Record holder, Lata Tandon.
Hilda launched into the competition on Thursday at exactly 4 pm when she put on her cooker.
The restaurateur 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.
Hilda has continued to receive a wave of support from political leaders, 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.
Hilda had, in an Instagram post on April 2nd, announced that she was going to make her five-year-long dream a reality.
She revealed she will cook for four days and four nights to break the record of Tandon which was set in India in 2019.
Meanwhile, the Guinness World Record is yet to confirm Hilda’s latest feat as it said it will have to review the evidence first.
