“They said I am too blessed” — Hilda Baci addresses disapproval following record breaking attempt
The well-known Nigerian chef, Hilda Baci, addresses how her attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the longest cooking marathon was met with disapproval over claims of being too blessed.
According to Hilda, there were people who were not pleased with her accomplishment because they perceived her as being “too blessed.”
It is worth noting that she recently set a new record of 100 hours of non-stop cooking, surpassing the previous record of 87 hours and 45 minutes held by India’s Lata Tandon.
However, despite her achievement, Hilda’s attempt is currently undergoing review by Guinness World Records for certification.
During her appearance as a guest on the latest episode of the ‘I Said What I Said’ Podcast; HildaBaci revealed that many individuals were dissatisfied with her endeavour due to feelings of intimidation caused by her beauty, skills, and charisma.
“There were a lot of ‘It’s not fairs’, like, ‘how can only her be fine, be hot, ah ah. How can only her have all these things? That’s not how life is,” the renowned chef stated.
On the speculations that she paid massively for publicity, Hilda said, “The PR that we invested in, how much, how many was it? The kind of earned media that the attempt got, you can not pay for it. You can’t plan for it, you can’t pay it. It’s grace. You can only hope.”
She further addressed the general experience of cooking for such a long period and taking instructions from her team.
