How Guinness World Records Reacted To Nigerian Chef Hilda Baci’s Feat

Before formally verifying the record set by Nigerian chef Hilda Baci, the Guinness World Records said it would examine all the data.

Baci said last month that she was going to attempt to break the record for the longest cooking marathon.

At the Amore Gardens in Lekki, Lagos, early on Monday, Baci accomplished the feat.

The Indian chef Lata Tondon had previously held the record, which the Nigerian chef broke by cooking for more than 87 hours and 45 minutes.

While Nigerians celebrated Baci’s achievement on Twitter, a user wondered why the Guinness World Records hadn’t said anything about Hilda’s new record.

“Why is Guinness World Record not showing or talking about Hilda‘s cook-a-ton? Can’t see anything on their pages (Twitter, Facebook, YouTube),” the user wrote.


“We are aware of this amazing record attempt, we need to review all the evidence first before officially confirming a record,” Guinness World Records responded.

Baci, it is understood, will be stopping the cook-a-thon when she hits the 97-hour mark.

TheCable Lifestyle earlier reported how thousands of Nigerians took to Lekki to rally support for the Akwa-Ibom chef.

Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Lagos state governor, also visited the Lekki venue, while Atiku Abubakar, the former vice president, hailed Hilda for “standing at the crossroads of history”.

Some celebrities like Dremo, IK Osakioduwa, Eni Adeoluwa, Timini Egbuson, Liquorose, Tiwa Savage, Spyro, Charles Okocha, and Skiibii also visited the venue of the competition to cheer up Baci.
