Nigerian chef Hilda Baci has broken the Guinness World Record for the “longest cooking marathon by an individual”.
The chef recorded the milestone by hitting the 87-hour, 45-minute mark and is yet to set a new world record.
In the early hours of Monday, May 15, 2023, she beat the 87 hours, 45 minutes record set by the current World Record holder, Lata Tondon, an Indian chef who made the feat in 2019.
She expressed sheer joy and gratitude to God in a viral video, celebrating the triumphant accomplishment.
Cheers from fans gathered at the ‘Cookathon’ venue has also intensified.
Hilda has continued to receive a wave of support from government officials, celebrities, clerics, and other well-meaning fans worldwide.
She kick-started the competition on Thursday, May 11, at exactly 4 pm.
Hilda was said to have experienced severe foot cramps during the contest due to standing the entire period.
At a point, when the pains intensified, she was spotted tearing up in a viral video while fans gathered at the venue backed her with prayers.
