Hilda Baci, who holds the Guinness World Record for lengthiest cook-a-thons, has admitted that she attempted to be on the Big Brother Naija programme to advertise it.
A former BBNaija housemate, Tacha, hosts a radio show called The Big Friday Show, where Baci made this revelation.
She said, “I tried to get on Big Brother Naija for a while. I think I auditioned about four or five times. The plan for the cook-a-thon was still in the pipeline, so my goal was to go to Big Brother and then come out and do the cook-a-thon.
“But I guess God just knew, he was like you know what, this is fine just focus on this, this is going to take a lot more from you.”
Hilda Baci prepared over 100 pots of food during her cook-a-thon, beating the previous record of 87 hours and 45 minutes set by Lata Tondon (India) in 2019.
