Hilda Baci, a 27-year-old Nigerian chef, is currently the Guinness World Record holder for the longest cooking marathon by an individual, with a time of 93 hours and 11 minutes as confirmed on Monday.
She cooked more than 100 pots of food during her four-day stint in the kitchen, mostly Nigerian dishes such as jollof rice and akara. Here are six benefits she might enjoy as a world record holder:
1. Highly valued certificate
She will receive a certificate from Guinness World Records to officially recognise her achievement. This will be a tangible proof of her hard work and dedication, and something she can display proudly in her restaurant or home.
2. Global visibility
She will be featured on the Guinness World Records website and social media platforms, reaching millions of people around the world. This will give her exposure and fame, and also inspire others to attempt their own records or learn more about Nigerian cuisine.
3. Source of inspiration
She will have the opportunity to inspire young African women to chase their dreams and pursue their passions. She said she attempted this record to “put young African women on the map” and to show them that anything is possible with determination and courage.
4. Monetary value
She will gain more recognition and publicity for her restaurant, My Food by Hilda, and attract more customers and fans. Her restaurant is located in Lagos, Nigeria’s largest city and commercial hub. She offers a variety of dishes from different regions of Nigeria, as well as continental and intercontinental cuisines.
5. Lifelong value
Sometimes, companies want to use the names of people who have done amazing things. People like Hilda Baci with Guinness record may get offers from companies to work with them.
6. Touring around the world
People who have Guinness records are often asked to join events, meetings, and TV shows, where they can get paid for being there.
7. Monetization through authorship
Hilda Baci can also make money by telling her story in a book, or by making things that are related to her record.
Why we deducted almost 6 hours from Hilda Baci’s time, Guinness World records gives reason for action
Meanwhile, Fedpolygist earlier reported that Guinness World Records has explained why it deducted over six hours from Hilda Baci’s official final total.
Hilda had done 100 hours of cooking at her May 2023 cook-a-thon but was recently awarded for 93 hours and 11 minutes by GWR. Hilda attempted to set a record of 100 hours, however, almost seven hours were deducted from her final total because she mistakenly took extra minutes for one of her rest breaks early on in the attempt.

17-year-old Nigerian boy defies UTME failure, makes N14.5m from comic books he writes
A Nigerian boy who faced disappointment after failing Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) twice has found immense success by tapping into his talent as a comic book writer.
The inspiring story, which went viral on Twitter thanks to user Dev Tobs, sheds light on the young boy’s journey to financial prosperity and academic pursuits.
According to the Twitter thread, the unnamed boy attempted the UTME twice but did not achieve the desired results.
However, his family recognized his gift for writing and encouraged him to explore it further.
In a fortuitous twist, his brother, a close friend of Dev Tobs and a software engineer, advised him to publish his comic books on popular platforms like Amazon, Etsy, and others.
The boy channeled his efforts into his newfound passion and began publishing his comic books on the online platforms. The response was overwhelming, with readers appreciating his creative storytelling and unique artistic style.
As a result, his comic books started gaining significant traction and popularity, leading to substantial financial success.
The Twitter thread revealed that the talented writer amassed an astonishing sum of N14.5 million (approximately $19,000) within a span of two years.
Overwhelmed by his success, the boy made a life-changing decision to pursue his dreams further by relocating to Canada to pursue a bachelor’s degree.
“He wrote JAMB twice with no major headway, but his folks noticed he had a flair for writing, hence his brother who’s my close pal, also a software Engineer, advised he starts hoisting the comic books he writes on this Amazon thingy, Etsy and one other one.” He has made so much money from it.
“Yes, you didn’t misread, he made $19k (N14.5 million). Two years down the line today, I got news he’s moved up to Canada for his bachelor’s and I couldn’t stop but feel happier.”
@thefavourigwe said; “The Amazon thingy is called Amazon KDP and yes people make a whole lot of money uploading comics, novels, activity books (coloring, puzzles) etc… Different kinds of books basically.”
@ebenofere commented; “This is beautiful. You can make anything out of yourself if you really want it. Where there is a will, there is a way.”
In 2021, I met this 17 year old Nigerian lad that had made $19,000. Yes , you didn’t misread, $19k 😭.
He wrote JAMB twice with no major headway but His folks noticed he had flair for writing, hence his brother who’s my close pal, also a software Engineer advised he starts…
