Chef Hilda Bassey, also known as Hilda Baci, was presented with a plot of land in Wana Court Green Estate, Uyo, Akwa Ibom State’s capital, after breaking her own record and setting a new one by completing 100 hours of non-stop cooking in a single individual.
Hilda Baci recently completed a 100-hour cooking marathon to set a Guinness World Record for the longest cooking marathon.
According to a real estate firm, the chef is deserving of the land gift because she has become a unifying force in Nigeria.
The statement on Monday signed by the firm’s managing director Gideon Ekanem read;
Akwa Ibomites exuberantly celebrates her extraordinary achievement. In recognition of this remarkable feat, we are delighted to present Hilda with a free plot of land in Wana Court, the first true Green and Smart Estate in Akwa Ibom State.
May this well-deserved honour serve as a testament to your unwavering determination. Congratulations, champion.
Dana Air announced its support for her on Tuesday, offering her a year of free domestic flights.
The airline also provided three months of free flight tickets to the cook’s mother.
Dana Air’s chief operating officer, Ememobong Ettete, stated that the airline has always supported and will continue to support the craft, creativity, efforts, and innovations of young Nigerians who embody the true Nigerian spirit as a proudly Nigerian brand.
