Celebrity chef Hilda Baci and influencer Enioluwa have been called out by the president of dog lovers in Lagos state for their viral dog meat video.
Recall that Hilda Bassey, joined by social media influencer Enioluwa, traveled to her state of Akwa Ibom to celebrate her return after breaking the record for the longest amount of time spent cooking by an individual.
During their visit, Hilda introduced Enioluwa to one of the local delicacies which is dog meat. They eat dog meat in that part of the country. Enioluwa posted a video of Hilda asking him to try the dog meat.
In the clip, which went viral, the aggrieved lady disclosed that her association and their dogs were present at Hilda’s recently concluded cookathon to cheer and support her.
She continued by saying that she thought Hilda’s attempt to break a Guinness World Record was an outstanding accomplishment that had improved Nigeria’s standing abroad.
She criticized Hilda for portraying Nigerians as dog eaters to the outside world and called out influencer Enioluwa for eating no dog meat but yet sitting at a table where it was being served.*
