Nigerian chef, Hilda Effiong Bassey, popularly known as Hilda Baci, has surpassed the 96-hour target and has now achieved a 100-hour record time.
Supporters at the cook-a-thon competition, taking place at the Amore Gardens, Lekki, Lsgos State, are at the moment sharing videos of themselves cheering the 27-year-old chef as well as celebrating her for achieving the milestone.
Hilda was initially scheduled to stop at 4PM today, culminating in her former 96-hour target and surpassing the current Guinness World Record holder for the “longest cooking marathon by an individual”.
The Lagos-based chef began the competition on Thursday after she turned on her cooker at 4PM and surpassed the current world record holder on Monday morning.
If certified after the 100th hour, she will be displacing the current world record holder, Lata Tondon, an Indian chef who achieved the feat in 2019 with 87 hours 45 minutes record uninterrupted cooking.
