Sanwo-Olu visits Hilda Baci as she attempts to break world record


The Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has showed his support for chef Hilda Baci as she attempts to break the Guinness World Record for the longest cooking time.

In an attempt to clinch this record, the 27-year-old graduate on Thursday set up a four-day ‘cook-a-thon’ at Amore Gardens, Lekki, Lagos State.

Sanwo-Olu showed up at the venue to meet with Baci. He made this known on his Twitter page on Sunday.

The Governor wrote, “I showed up to support Chef Hilda Baci, in her quest to break the Guinness World Record
@GWR for the longest time spent cooking by an individual.

“Her dedication, passion for cooking as well as her desire to put our rich culture on the map by not only exhibiting our food but also the resilience, determination, energy and team spirit that has come to be known as the spirit of Lagos and indeed Nigeria is truly remarkable.

“We are proud to have Hilda embarking on this journey in our state. I will continue to follow the updates and look forward to the final declaration.”

Hilda would be cooking for four days consecutively to break the record Lata Tondon was holding after cooking for 87 hours, 45 minutes, and 00 seconds in Rewa, India in 2019.

Baci had mentioned at a press briefing in April that her aim is to become “infatuated with the world record” since childhood.


However, the 27-year-old famous chef is expected to cook different meals simultaneously and she has the liberty to cook any meal she likes as there are no restrictions as to what she can cook or not cook.

President-elect, Bola Tinubu, has thrown his weight behind chef Hilda Baci as she attempts to break the Guinness World Record for the ‘longest cooking time’.

Taking to her Instagram live video on Sunday, Tinubu commented, “IDAN doesn’t break, she breaks records. We’re rooting for you, Hilda.” as a show of support for the chef.

The screenshot of the Instagram Live was shared on Tinubu’s Instagram story on Sunday.

‘Idan’ is a trending slang on social media, used to describe someone who grinds out extraordinary results.
