“How I feel about people attempting to break by record” – Nigerian chef, Hilda Baci opens up
Popular Nigerian chef, restaurateur, actress, and the current holder of the Guinness World Record for marathon cooking, Hilda Effiong Bassey, better known as Hilda Baci, has finally reacted to attempts by other chefs to surpass her Guinness World Record.
The 26-year-old Hilda from Akwa Ibom rose to fame after she broke the Guinness World Record for the longest cooking time by an individual.
Hilda, during her four-day cooking marathon, received the support of Nigerians both online and physically. All through the cooking marathon in Lekki, Lagos, the venue was filled to the brim with people, including public figures who were there to cheer her on.
However, it appeared the support Hilda received inspired a lot of Nigerians to attempt to break several records, including the one Hilda just broke.
A number of Nigerian chefs have embarked on cooking marathons in a bid to beat Hilda’s record time of 93 hours and 11 minutes.
Finally speaking on how she feels about these attempts in an exclusive chat with Legit NG, Hilda Baci said she sees herself as a trailblazer and an inspiration to others.
“I feel i started a trend or like I am pretty much a trailblazer because only a trailblazer will start something and other people will want to do it”.
