If recognized by the Guinness World Records, she will succeed Indian chef Lata Tondon, who now holds the record with a record-breaking 87 hours and 45 minutes of nonstop cooking.

At the moment, Baci is engaged in a culinary marathon at Amore Gardens in Lekki, Lagos State.

Nigerians, including a number of celebrities, withstood the weather to physically encourage the obviously exhausted cook in her ongoing record-breaking endeavor.
