The management of Hilda Baci, the world record-breaking Nigerian chef, says she never granted an interview where she discussed her virginity. 


On Monday, there were rumours circulating on social media, suggesting that Baci had granted an interview discussing her “commitment to remain a virgin, despite being in a five-year relationship”.

The reports claimed that Baci had stated, “I might not be single, but I’ve been dating someone, and we agreed on no sex before marriage. I’ve been dating my boyfriend for 5 years now, but no sex; I’m still a virgin”.

But when TheCable Lifestyle reached out to Baci’s management for clarification, they asserted that she never granted such an interview.


The celebrity chef, born Hilda Bassey, gained fame for successfully breaking the world record for the longest cooking marathon in May.

She accomplished this feat by cooking for an impressive 93 hours and 11 minutes, earning her certification as the record holder in June.

In July, she shared her vision to transform her culinary marathon into a festival.


“So, in terms of now making it into something, I want to make the ‘cook-a-thon’ turn into more like a festival that happens in probably in different countries,” she said while speaking with TheCable Lifestyle.

“That is something I am open to. I am now reaching out to these brands.”
