After completing 100 hours, Hilda surpassed Lata Tondon, an Indian chef who held the record in 2019 with 87 hours and 45 minutes of uninterrupted cooking. Guinness World Records subsequently acknowledged Hilda Baci as the new record holder, despite facing criticism from Nigerians.
Yet, due to issues related to her resting hours, Hilda’s record time was adjusted. Her final record stood at 93 hours and 11 minutes, rather than the full 100 hours she initially cooked for.
“Will we see you reattempt one day?”.
Replying on her behalf, Mercy Eke declared that the chef doesn’t have any desire to reattempt.
Mercy Eke wrote; “No!!! She’s done and dusted”.
Her reply didn’t sit well with many netizens as they noted how Mercy attempted to win Big Brother Naija again by contesting in the All Stars show.

The renowned chef lost her Guinness World Record for the longest time cooking while standing, as reported on Tuesday.
Guinness Book of Records announced Alan Fisher from Ireland as the new record holder. Fisher accomplished a remarkable 119-hour, 57-minute cooking marathon in a Japanese restaurant.
In response, the chef updated her social media bio, acknowledging that she retains her spirit and historical status as a record holder. She commends Fisher for his achievement and competitive spirit. Chef Lata, the previous record holder, respectfully acknowledged her win and adjusted her own bio, inspiring Hilda to do the same.
Hilda emphasizes that achieving such a record is no small feat, having achieved a 100-hour cooking record in June. Her remarkable four-day kitchen stint at Amore Gardens, Lekki, saw her cook over 100 pots of food, surpassing the previous record held by Lata Tondon.
Hilda initially held the record at 100 hours but faced a reduction to 93 hours and 11 minutes due to issues with her resting hours. Her achievement was confirmed by Guinness World Records after some controversy.
