Hilda Effiong-Bassey, also known as Hilda Baci, broke the record for the most money spent on a lunch date with friends at the Cook-a-thon.
In a video clip shared by Instablog9ja, a friend of Baci’s was overheard claiming that they went to a restaurant for lunch on Sunday after attending church.
After placing their items, the total came to N1.1m, she said, adding that Baci had paid it.
“Hello there, gentlemen. Today, in order to give thanks to God for a successful Cook-a-thon, we went to church. After the service, we made the decision to stop by for brunch. We ordered the world, but when the bill came, it was N1.1m, we were confused. The world record breaker paid the bill, so there was no need to worry. Baci’s friend said.
In the video footage, Baci could be seen dining out with her buddies. The video clip included a presentation of the receipt as well.
The punch had stated that Baci’s initial goal for the 96-hour non-stop cooking marathon that was webcast on Instagram and YouTube was to surpass the Indian record holder, who had previously cooked for 87 hours and 45 minutes in 2019.
Baci, after achieving the 96-hour goal, went on to achieve a new world record for non-stop cooking for 100 hours. This was accomplished thanks to her sheer willpower and the raucous audience of people, including celebrities, who were cheering her on while she worked on the cooking.
