Nigerian Guinness record holder, chef Hilda Baci shares the event, particularly her most challenging moments, after setting a record in it.
The 27-year-old chef broke the Guinness World Record for the longest period spent cooking by an individual on May 15 to make history.
Hilda Baci beat the previous record of 87 hours and 45 minutes held by Indian chef Lata Tondon in 2019 by cooking continuously for 100 hours.
In a recent interview with Pulse, Hilda talked about her accomplishment and said that the first six hours of the marathon were the hardest because she had to pray for endurance.
“I am amazed at the outpouring of love from Nigerians towards achieving this record. The first six hours were the toughest for me, and I had to pray to God for strength,” she said.
“I appreciate everyone who took the time to support and encourage me by visiting the venue to cheer me on or driving the conversation on social platforms.
“Your unwavering passion to see me succeed through this attempt is heartfelt. I am grateful to my family, the various teams that worked with me on this project, and fans from all over the world who kept the passion going,” she added.
