“My babe dey do am for free” – Hilda Baci under fire for reportedly charging N25,000 to watch her cook in Abuja
Popular chef, Hilda Baci, has been slammed heavily after it was alleged that she charged N25,000 for meet-and-greet sessions in Abuja.
Hilda Baci made headlines on May 15, 2023, when she reportedly broke the Guinness World Record for the longest cooking marathon. The previous record of 87 hours and 45 minutes was held by Chef Lata Tondon from Rewa, India in 2019.
However, the Guinness World Record has not yet officially confirmed Baci as the new record holder for the longest cooking marathon, despite her impressive feat.
The Akwa Ibom chef has been involved in different controversial actions that have triggered criticism from Nigerians.
According to recent reports, Hilda Baci is allegedly charging a significant amount of N25,000 for personal meet-ups in Abuja. It is said that individuals will have to pay this fee to have a brief encounter with her on June 24, 2023.
Although Hilda Baci has not spoken publicly about these allegations, many Nigerians have expressed their disappointment and concern over what they see as an exorbitant fee to meet a chef.
