On Monday, a Nigerian chef achieved a remarkable feat by setting a new global record for the longest nonstop cooking session.

Hilda Baci dedicated a staggering 100 hours to cooking, surpassing the previous record. Her culinary journey began on Thursday of the previous week, with the goal of surpassing the Guinness World Record of 87 hours and 45 minutes set in 2019 by Indian chef Lata Tondon.

At approximately 19:45 GMT on Monday, Baci completed her 100th hour of continuous cooking in the bustling Lekki area of Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial hub, the Associated Press reported.

Her accomplishment quickly made her a national sensation, captivating the hearts of thousands who had gathered at the scene.

The crowd erupted in jubilation, showering her with praise as she finally concluded her culinary marathon.

The Guinness World Records acknowledged the chef’s endeavor via a tweet, expressing awareness of her attempt to break the cooking record.

However, the global brand noted that a thorough review of all evidence would be necessary before officially confirming the achievement, as reported by the AP.

Through her pursuit of this record, the Nigerian chef aimed to showcase the industriousness and determination of Nigerian youth.

Additionally, she sought to advocate for young African women who often face marginalization within society.

Her remarkable feat stands as a testament to her resilience and serves as an inspiration to others.
