Hilda Baci denies charging N25,000 to meet supporters in Abuja

Popular Nigerian chef, Hilda Baci has debunked reports that she is charging twenty-five thousand Naira, for a meet and greet in Abuja.

According to viral reports, Hilda Baci is allegedly charging a significant amount of N25,000 for personal meet-ups in Abuja. It is said that individuals will have to pay this fee to have a brief encounter with her on June 24, 2023.

A flier promoting the alleged event, which includes a live cooking and food tasting session, surfaced on the internet on Friday, triggering several reactions.

Nigerians immediately took to several platforms to express their disappointment and concern over what they see as an exorbitant fee to meet a chef who hasn’t yet been awarded the Guiness World Record.

@Mayorstilldey4u said; “Lagos people see Hilda Baci for free. E reach Abuja people turn, e turn 25k.”

@yitsugee reacted: “Meet and greet with Hilda Baci for 25k??? wow.”

@Batopy1234 said: “25k to see Hilda Baci? Na bread of life she wan bake?”

@esther__111 reacted: “25k to see Hilda Baci ke As you Dey cook-a-thon, how much you pay people wey come support you?”

@KhaleedSZN commented:

“25k to watch Hilda baci cook? Wetin my babe dey do for free.”

@fineboytunde_ said: “25k to see hilda Baci, how much be some mentors Forex class? God Abeg.”

africanflamingo_: “She cook pass bobrisky wey dey put sugar for food .” 

meerah_cul: “Even person wey cook ‍ last supper no charge such amount‍♂️.. Hilda nwa no discount?‍♂️” 

dear_enayi: “25k for person wey never enter Guinness book? Torrr”.

cartelways07: “When she d cook to get the Guinness Record, all of una d shout Hilda we stand by you always, now una wan sit down ? . My country people .” 

Also, social media commentator Daniel Regha criticized Hilda, saying, “Hilda Bacis is nothing without Nigerians. If the masses didn’t support and get her trending, many celebs wouldn’t show up to fake hype her Cookathon. It’s a sad but honest truth. Her meet and greet should be free as a way to show appreciation. Charging N25k (if true) is ridiculous.”

Taking to her Twitter handle, Hilda debunked these allegations. In her words,

“Hi everyone, this is to inform everyone that I’m not doing any meet and greet in Abuja. I would also never ask anyone to pay for such. 🙏🏾 Thanks.”

When a Twitter user claimed that the tweet was just damage control in response to the reactions the alleged event triggered, Hilda responded;

“@CryptofixPro If I didn’t come out to say something, y’all would say I let them scam people. Now I’ve come out to let you know it’s not coming from me. It’s damage control 🤦🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️ How would I do a meet and greet that I’m charging for and not post it on any of my social media platforms?

“If I didn’t come out to say something y’all will say I let them scam people now I’ve come out to let you know it’s not coming from me it’s damage control 🤦🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️ how will do a meet and greet that I’m charging for and not post it on any of my social media platforms”.
