People who were in attendance at the cook-a-thon competition at the Amore Gardens in Lekki recorded recordings of themselves applauding the young chef and congratulating her on reaching the milestone.

Hilda was initially scheduled to stop at 4 pm culminating in her former 96-hour target surpassing the current Guinness World Record holder for the “longest cooking marathon by an individual”.

The Lagos-based chef began the competition on Thursday after she turned on her cooker at 4 pm and surpassed the current world record holder on Monday morning.

Now certified after the 100th hour, she has displaced the current world record holder, Lata Tondon, an Indian chef who achieved the feat in 2019 with 87 hours 45 minutes record uninterrupted cooking.
