In a world where possibilities seem infinite, there exists a group of extraordinary individuals who dare to transcend ordinary limitations.

Guinness World Record holders stand as living testaments to the indomitable human spirit, constantly challenging boundaries and inspiring us all to reach for greatness.

Their remarkable feats of strength, resilience, creativity, and determination serve as beacons of inspiration, igniting a flame within us to believe that anything is possible.

Hilda Baci from Nigeria is one of these Record Holders who is set to use her culinary art to raise hopes in the heart of widows by cooking to raise funds for them in Lagos, on Friday, July 14.

This exceptional event aims to raise funds for a noble cause: supporting widows in their journey towards self-reliance.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) brings you the exciting news that Joseph Edgar, known as The Duke of Shomolu and CEO of Duke of Shomolu Productions, has initiated this project to empower and assist widows in need.

In an exclusive interview with NAN on Sunday, Edgar revealed the remarkable collaboration with Hilda Baci and his dedication to making a positive impact in the lives of widows through this culinary extravaganza.

He said that Baci is expected to display her “mesmerising skills which enamoured the world and saw her emerge as the Guiness record holder in a bid to raise N1 million for a widow”.

Over the course of the past three years, the initiative has raised an impressive sum of over N10 million to support widows.

The Duke of Shomolu, the visionary behind this philanthropic endeavor, expressed his pride in the initiative’s accomplishments thus far.

Through the unwavering support and generosity of compassionate individuals, the project has made a tangible difference in the lives of those in need, empowering and uplifting deserving widows within the community.

“The initiative involves very close friends and associates of The Duke of Shomolu, donating cash instead of gifts to mark his birthdays.

The cash gifts are then sent to needy widows, who would have been nominated by members of the public.

“Last year, N2 million was donated to four deserving widows by the friends and associates of the Duke of Shomolu

“This year, N3 million was raised with the winner, who got N1 million, nominated by a director at Keystone Bank, Mr Yemi Odusanya, who incidentally shares same birthday with the Duke.”

Under the discerning eye of Joseph Edgar, The Duke of Shomolu, ten widows were carefully selected from a pool of nearly 100 nominees, and each will receive the sum of N1 million. In a heartwarming gesture, Edgar emphasized his commitment to making a positive impact in the lives of widows by facilitating this generous financial support.

Hilda Baci, renowned for her culinary prowess, will lend her extraordinary talents to the cause by preparing a delectable feast for agathering of ten individuals at the Ivy Hotel, located in the prestigious Emerald neighborhood of Ikeja GRA, Lagos.

Additionally, as a testament to her unwavering dedication, Baci will personally select a widow to receive a generous donation of N1 million.

The generosity of Prothrive Astute Heights Ltd., the esteemed makers of Grandios Pap, cannot go unnoticed.

In recognition of their social responsibility, they have graciously stepped forward to sponsor this significant event, aligning their brand with the noble cause of supporting widows in need.

This collaborative effort, driven by the passion and compassion of remarkable individuals and organizations, stands as a shining example of how collective action can make a profound difference in the lives of those who deserve our support and empowerment.
