On Tuesday, June 13, Hilda was announced by Guinness as the world record holder for the longest cooking time by an individual, with a time of 93 hours and 11 minutes.
Following the announcement, Nigerians took to social media to celebrate the Akwa Ibom chef. However, a young man, while congratulating Hilda, posted a photo of her in a bikini, which didn’t sit well with some social media users, especially reality TV star Angel.
Angel felt it was inappropriate and expressed her dissatisfaction through her Twitter handle, lambasting the man.
When some people countered her, stating that there was nothing wrong with the man’s post, Angel asked if people would have shared a photo of a person in boxers if a man had achieved the feat.
In other news, former Anambra state governor and presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, Peter Obi, has congratulated Nigerian chef, Hilda Effiong Bassey, aka Hilda Baci for breaking the Guinness World Record for longest cooking marathon by an individual.
