Nigerian chef, Hilda Effiong Bassey, otherwise known as Hilda Baci, has broken the Guinness World Record for the “longest cooking marathon by an individual”.

The chef, on Monday morning, May 15, 2023, smashed the 87 hours 45 minutes record set by the current Guinness World Record holder, Lata Tondon.

Baci launched into the competition on Thursday, May 11, 2023, at exactly 4 pm when she put on her cooker.

She 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 young woman has continued to receive a wave of support from government officials, celebrities, clerics, and other well-meaning Nigerians.
