Nigerian chef, Hilda Effiong Bassey, popularly known as Hilda Baci, who surpassed the current Guinness World Record holder for cooking marathon, has been verified on Instagram.
Checks on her Instagram page on Monday showed that she now has the blue tick.
With her record-breaking feat, she’s poised to break the Guinness World Record for the “longest cooking marathon by an individual” after hitting the 87 hours 50 minutes mark.
The restaurateur 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 by the Guinness World Record, 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.
