Expectedly, the gifts, endorsements and all of that have started pouring in as barely 24 hours after breaking the Guinness World Record for the longest hours of cooking, a real estate firm, In-Motions Business Limited, has given popular Nigerian Chef, Hilda Bassey, better known as Hilda Baci, a plot of land located in Wana Court Green Estate, Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State capital.
Before now, Dana Airline had announced on its Twitter handle that it will support the record-breaking chef with one year free tickets.
The airline said it would always support the creativity, efforts and innovation of Nigerian youths.
In the case of the land gift however the Managing Director of In-Motions Business Limited, Mr Gideon Ekanem, announced the land donation in a statement on his Twitter handle, noting that the now popular Nigerian Chef is worthy of the land gift because she has become a uniting force in Nigeria.
