Renowned chef Hilda Baci, famous for her extraordinary culinary accomplishments, has been stripped of her Guinness World Record for the longest duration spent cooking while standing.
The announcement was recently made by the Guinness Book of Records on their social media platforms. The new title holder, Alan Fisher from Ireland, achieved an incredible cooking marathon of 119 hours and 57 minutes at his restaurant in Japan.
Nigerians have expressed a variety of reactions to this news. A devoted fan of Hilda Baci expressed confidence in her abilities, stating, “She broke the record once, and she’ll do it again.” Another individual took a more philosophical stance, remarking, “Records are meant to be broken, so it’s not a problem.”
Some individuals felt that Hilda Baci should have been allowed to retain the record for a longer period. As one person put it, “They should have let her keep the record for at least a year.” However, another perspective emerged, suggesting that once you become a record breaker, you will always be remembered as one. In their words, “A record breaker will always be a record breaker.”
A person also highlighted that Hilda Baci’s name is already engraved in the Guinness World Record, which holds significant importance. “Her name is registered in the Guinness World Record, and that’s what truly matters,” they emphasized.
Although Hilda Baci’s reign appears to have come to an end, her legacy as a record breaker continues to be a source of pride and inspiration, particularly among Nigerians.
Hilda Baci has yet to respond to this recent development.
