Celebrity chef, Hilda Effiong Bassey, a.k.a Hilda Baci, has revealed that she went for Big Brother Naija reality TV show audition five times without success.
She said she planned to go on the reality TV show and become famous before staging her record-making cooking challenge.
The Guinness World Record (GWR) holder disclosed this while appearing on Cool FM Nigeria’s programme, ‘The Big Friday Show’, hosted by reality TV star, Tacha.
