The chef also disclosed that before her Guinness World Record victory, she auditioned for the Big Brother Naija reality show, show four to five times but was never selected.
“I tried to get on Big Brother [Naija] for a while. I think I auditioned about four or five times.

On Ekiti Chef Damilola Adeparusi, popularly known as Chef Dammy, who made headlines for attempting Baci’s feat back in May, Baci said she was not threatened by the young lady’s attempt.
Baci said, “At the time she was attempting the record, we were still trying to submit evidence so in truth, the major focus was what was happening on social media.
“A few days before, we had received a mail from Guinness requesting evidence, and my focus then was gathering the evidence and submitting it to Guiness World Records.
“I wasn’t thinking too much about Dammy. Social media brought it to my consciousness.”
