Popular chef Hilda Bassey Effiong, also known as Hilda Baci, has stated that some individuals thought she was “too blessed” when she attempted to break the record for the longest cooking marathon by an individual.
Hilda set another 100-hour relentless cooking record, breaking India’s Lata Tandon’s past record of 87 hours and 45 minutes.

But, speaking as a guest on the latest episode of the I Said What I Said Podcast, Hilda said that many people were put off by her beauty, skills, and charisma.
“There were a lot of ‘It’s not fairs’, like, ‘how can only her be fine, be hot, ah ah. How can only her have all these things? That’s not how life is.
”On the speculations that she paid for publicity, she said,“The PR that we invested in, how much, how many was it? The kind of earned media that the attempt got, you can not pay for it. You can’t plan for it, you can’t pay it. It’s grace. You can only hope.”
