Hilda Baci has achieved a remarkable feat by surpassing Lata Tondon’s world record for the longest cooking session.
Her endeavor commenced on May 11th, which was last week Thursday.
Hilda was resolute in her determination to surpass the previous record of 87 hours and 45 minutes, set by Lata, an Indian woman.
Undeterred, she embarked on an extensive cooking marathon, tirelessly working in the kitchen. Her efforts attracted cheers and support from numerous individuals, while others skeptically questioned her motives.
Despite the skepticism, Hilda’s initiative brought people from diverse backgrounds and tribes across the nation together, uniting them in a shared purpose to support her.
The act of cooking, which some doubted and pondered upon its significance, led to more than 18 brands eagerly partnering with her.
As the days progressed, Hilda visibly grew fatigued. It was hardly surprising considering her continuous cooking, with only 5 minutes of rest per hour, equating to a mere 2 hours of rest each day.
But she refused to surrender. Fuelled by the assistance of her staff and the cheers of Nigerians, she forged ahead.
News of her endeavor spread far and wide. Not only did Nigerians rally behind her, but people from around the globe, including her fellow Africans and even the previous record holder, Lata, joined in through phone calls and online support, encouraging Hilda to persevere.
This outpouring of support served as a great motivation. Although tired, Hilda drew strength from the collective spirits of thousands, possibly millions, surrounding her. She pressed on, defying physical exhaustion and the potential breakdown of her body.
Now, on the fourth day, Hilda has officially surpassed the previous record. Yet, she has not stopped there. She continues to cook, aiming to set a new record of 96 hours, surpassing the initial record by an additional 9 hours.
The presence of enthusiastic supporters, both physically and on social media, continues to inspire her.
Four days ago, she embarked on a seemingly impossible journey. Now, four days later, she has shattered the previous record, and her determination propels her towards setting a new benchmark and etching her name into the annals of history.
Ladies and gentlemen, Hilda Baci, our Nigerian sister, stands proudly among us as she ventures into uncharted territory in the culinary world.
