The exam was set for HND 1 students offering Communication Theories with Course Code; Mac 31 in the first semester 2022/2023 session.

Students were asked to use Hilda’s trending cooking marathon to explain a concept propounded by Canadian-American Pyscologist, Albert Banura, which is part of the syllabus.

Baci began her four-day ‘cook-a-thon’ on Thursday, May 11 at Amore Gardens, Lekki, Lagos State and stopped at 100 hours on Monday.

The 27-year-old graduate beat the current record of 87 hours, 45 minutes, held by Indian chef, Lata Tondon which she completed in Rewa, India in 2019.

Meanwhile, the Guinness World Record clarified that it will have to review all the evidence first before officially confirming the record.
