- Nigerians on Twitter have rallied to celebrate with her, as many said she hugely deserved her record title
A video shows exactly how Hilda Baci reacted when she got the news of her confirmation from the Guinness World Records.
The chef had anxiously waited after submitting the evidence of her cookathon for the body to verify.
The cookathon took place in May, and the chef gathered her evidence and submitted it to the body in the same month.
She had cooked for 100 hours, according to her own records, but the Guinness World Records said it could only award her 93 hours and 11 minutes.
Giving reasons as to how it arrived at the conclusion, the body said there was a miscalculation in Hilda’s allowed resting time of five minutes after an hour.
