However, she did not do it alone; her strength during the “cook-a-thon” event wavered at times but was ultimately renewed by the enthusiastic and vibrant Nigerians who showed up in massive numbers to show their support.


The Supportive Young Nigerians at the ‘Cook-a-thon’

When Hilda announced her intention to set a new record for marathon cooking, outspoken Nigerian celebrity Mr. Maraconi took to Twitter to rally support for her, urging food lovers to come out and show their support.

This call to action inspired Nigerians from different ethnic backgrounds, states, and religious affiliations to gather at the event venue to show their unwavering support.

Among the crowd were individuals like Grace Itah, who took two days off from work to witness this life-changing moment.

Grace expressed her admiration, saying, “It takes a superhuman to cook for more than 80 hours.

The longest I have ever cooked is three hours, so I told myself I would witness it, and I’m glad that I did.”

Another supporter, Steven, a bright student who traveled from Delta to show his support, spoke about needing the inspiration to pursue his dream as a singer.
