Hilda Baci and menstrual palaver


Celebrity chef, Hilda Baci, may have talked herself into what many may see as an avoidable controversy.

She revealed her menstruation was on during her marathon cooking that earned her fame.

Some find this offensive and they are shooting harsh words at her.

She had said on TV3 Ghana: “I was on my period the entire time and that made it extremely difficult and extra hard. What that meant was it took away from the time that I had to rest.

“I was trying to rack up because I get 5 minutes every time I completed 1 hour. So if I stand for one hour, I had 5 minutes to rest. And I still had to do my medical checks. God bless my medical team.

“They were on the ground. “Because I was on my period I had to take a shower every single break I had. If I had 30 minutes I had to take a shower in that time because I had to change.

“My dad was worried because I have horrible cramps. Like really horrible cramps. So pushing through that means I can conquer things in this life.”

Recall that Hilda Baci surpassed the 96-hour target with her achieved 100-hour record time which took place on May 15, 2023, at the Amore Gardens, Lekki, Lagos.

Irked by the revelation in her interview, social media users have dragged her for making people eat food perceived to be unhygienic.

A user, Obissyn Ceo said, “Why perform such a thing on your menstrual period in the first place? Or is it that she doesn’t know her cycle well or it came unexpectedly??”

Another user, Efya’s mother said, “Maybe it came unexpectedly because cooking or taking a challenge like this whiles you were on ur period. wow…..and you sitting on tv telling ppl you were cooking and serving plenty ppl with that.”

Another user, Ghana TV opined, “So the people with juju that eat her food I want to ask have Babawo called you yet?

“Ah wey she take cook give manners. Doesn’t she know she was not supposed to do that? Real Papaya wrote.

Hetty Akofor said, “And she couldn’t choose any other dates on her period calendar to take up this task….chai and my country is making this trend cos they hv no relevant issues in Ghana to broadcast.”

Tyma best said, “You make people chop your period.”

“But why would you choose to attempt to break a record while you’re on your period?? Y’all just be making y’all lives harder,” Mr Debonair wrote.
