Hilda Effiong Bassey, also known as Hilda Baci, a Nigerian chef, has broken the Guinness World Record for the “longest cooking marathon by an individual.”
On Monday morning, the chef broke the 87-hour-45-minute record set by now-former Guinness World Record holder Lata Tondon.
Hilda began the battle on Thursday at 4 p.m., when she turned on her cooker.
Despite having broken the record, Hilda continues her quest to cook for 96 hours, setting a new world record as the first human on the planet to do so.
Government officials, celebrities, priests, and other well-meaning Nigerians have continued to show their support for the restaurateur.
Despite a torrential downpour in the early hours of Monday, Nigerians stood by her.
