Celebrity chef Hilda Bassey, better known in Nigeria as Hilda Baci, has told the story of how her biological father, Effiong Bassey Edem, rejected her.
This was revealed by the Guinness World Record holder in her most recent interview with Taymesan on the podcast “Tea with Tay.”
When discussing her relationship with her father, she said that although he had been in their lives since they were little, things had altered after a heated dispute between her mother and him had an effect on the kids.
Hilda said: “For me, I will say one of the biggest issues was when he abandoned me. He didn’t abandon me from on set. He was present for us to some extent.
“But when it dawned on me, was when my dad and mom had issues, and I was in 300 level second semester in University.
“I pretty much remember my conversation with my father on one matriculation day. I called him, I was like, you didn’t bring food for me and his response was like, ‘Who’s your dad?’.
“It later dawned on me years after that he was not actually joking.”
