Hilda Baci Emerges New Winner Of Guiness World Record For Longest Cooking Marathon (Video)

Hilda Bassey Effiong better known as Hilda Baci has broken the current Guinness World Record for longest hours spent in cooking by an individual. 

The title was previously held by an Indian chef, Lata London who cooked for 87 hours and 45 mins.

However, after spending 4 days non stop cooking, Hilda has now topped Lata's record with 87 hours and 50 minutes.

She started the cooking on Thursday and was expected to complete the target time frame by Monday 15th May, 2023.

The cooking is taking place at Amore Gardens, Lekki, Lagos State, Nigeria.

Nigerians gathered in their numbers to show her support.

The video of the moment the Nigerian chef's timing passed that of the current title holder has now been shared online.

One could see how relieved and tired she was.

We are so proud of her.
