Guinness World Records celebrated Hilda Baci in a special way today, May 11, 2024, by sharing an anniversary video of her remarkable cook-a-thon attempt. This video serves as a reminder that exactly a year ago, on May 11, 2023, Hilda embarked on her epic culinary journey, ultimately lasting 93 hours and 11 minutes.

Hilda's record-breaking endeavor captivated social media, with millions in Nigeria and beyond following her progress via an Instagram live stream. Such was the magnitude of her achievement that GWR's website crashed for two days due to the overwhelming traffic from her devoted fans.

Hilda's feat sent shockwaves around the world, particularly in Africa, inspiring many to pursue their own record-breaking aspirations. Her story became a beacon of inspiration, showcasing the power of determination and perseverance.

In June, Damilola 'Chef Dammy' Adeparusi attempted a cookathon by cooking for 120 hours, but her attempt was not certified due to irregularities like the live stream going off. In July 2023, Adeyeye 'Chef Deo' Adeola attempted to break the record by cooking for 150 hours, but it's unclear if she completed the challenge. In November 2023, Kenyan chef Maliha Mohammed collapsed after cooking for over 100 hours in her attempt.

In December 2023, Oyo-based chef Adebayo Ayodeji Temitope, known as Chef Tope Maggi, attempted to break the Guinness World Record by cooking for 200 hours. Finally, Ghanaian chef Failatu Abdulrazak has surpassed them all by cooking for 227 hours, beginning her attempt on January 1, 2024, but her record has not yet been certified by GWR.

However, only Ireland’s Alan Fisher officially broke Hilda Baci’s record by cooking for 119 hours and 57 minutes in November 2023, also setting the longest baking record. 

Recalls that the 26-year-old Nigerian chef embarked on her culinary journey on Thursday, May 11, and continued tirelessly until Monday, May 15, cooking over 100 pots of food during her four-day kitchen marathon.

Hilda aimed to set a record of 100 hours, but nearly seven hours were deducted from her final total due to an inadvertent error where she exceeded her allotted rest break time early in the attempt.

Hilda was awarded in June after careful reviews.

GWR tweeted: 

"Hilda Baci began her cooking marathon one year ago today in a news story that took over the world! ✨"

See the video below:

Recall that Hilda's journey to the Guinness World Record was paved with triumphs. She first captivated audiences as the host of the 2020 television show "Dine on a Budget." Then, in 2021, she achieved culinary glory by triumphing over Ghana's Leslie Kumordzie in the Jollof Face-off competition, proudly representing her Nigerian roots.
