“Since her record attempt, there has y you been a spike in applications from Nigeria, particularly for marathon records.
“We have received over 1,500 record applications from Nigeria since the start of May,” GWR was quoted as reported by Legit.ng.
Hilda, in May, hit stardom after her successful attempt cooking for 100 hours to beat the 87 hours 45 minutes record previously set by Lata Tondon, the Indian chef, in 2019.
The Akwa-Ibom born chef was certified by the British reference book in June but with a time of 93 hours 11 minutes having critically found some lapses during the attempt. Kiss-a-thon, massaging, lecturing, praise and worship, crying marathon to ‘sex-a-thon attempts.
