Hilda Baci Defends Her Dressing, Urges Nigerians To Recognize Her Talents Beyond Appearance

Hilda Baci, who recently broke the Guinness World Record for the longest cooking time by an individual, made the plea while reacting to the criticisms about her dressing style.

KanyiDaily recalls that a Nigerian pastor, Joshua Agunbiade had also berated Hilda’ Baci’s dressing after she rose to fame for her remarkable 100-hour cooking challenge

The pastor claimed that one can easily know a “demon girl” when she dresses like a harlot, adding that no matter the record she breaks, people will always know she is selling other things asides from food.

While addressing the media in Lagos, the 27-year-old chef defended her fashion sense, stressing that one can look sexy while still making significant contributions as a game changer.

She said,  “I don’t have to be dressed like a nun to make it in life. One can be sexy and still amazing, beautiful, and smart. I shouldn’t be taken back because of my looks or dressing as this does not determine my values or endowment.”

While awaiting official validation from the Guinness Book of Records, the chef expressed optimism about the confirmation of her record, highlighting that she adhered to all guidelines and left no stone unturned.

We complied with all the guidelines and never left any stone unturned. We didn’t fall short in any area and this is quite evident and clear.
