hilda bacci opens up on Abuja restaurant lawsuit

Nigerian chef, Hilda Baci has now shed light on the lawsuit threat by an Abuja-based restaurant for rebuffing them online.

Kemi Filani recalls that a restaurant in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Vibe by Ann’s had said it would sue chef Hilda Bassey aka Hilda Baci for allegedly pulling out of a planned meet-and-greet deal.

This is coming after Hilda Baci denied having anything to do with the event after receiving backlash over reports that attendees would be charged N25,000 for the live cooking meet-and-greet scheduled to hold in Abuja on June 24.

Baci in a post via her social media page, canceled the ‘meet and greet’ session, clarifying that she did not ask anyone to pay such an amount of money.

She said: “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.”

However, the organizers of the event have called out Hilda with claims and evidence of payment made for the event.

They alleged that both parties agreed to put out a publication for the event and an advance payment was made to the celebrity chef.

The event organizers noted that Hilda’s action has affected their brand and they would take all necessary steps to ensure that justice is served on the issue.

Now responding to the allegations and shedding light on the issue, the Akwa-Ibom-born chef via her verified social media handle on Monday night clarified to her fans that the money paid by the organizers of the event was refunded after she felt uncomfortable about the charge arrangements.

She further noted she had informed the organizers of her intentions to withdraw from the arrangement hoping they did not post the fliers on their platform. Unfortunately, they went ahead despite her refusal to participate in their scheduled event.
