The Nigerian airline has generously offered her an entire year’s worth of free tickets for all her domestic travels as a tribute to her remarkable achievement.

Hilda’s extraordinary feat has propelled her into the culinary stratosphere, earning her well-deserved recognition on a global scale.

Now, the Chief Operating Officer of Dana Air, Ememobong Ettete, couldn’t contain his admiration for Hilda’s talent and resilience.

He proudly declared the airline’s unwavering commitment to supporting the vibrant craft, boundless creativity, relentless efforts, and groundbreaking innovations exhibited by young Nigerians who embody the true spirit of their nation.

In a truly touching gesture, Dana Air also extended their support to Hilda’s mother.

Recognising the role she played in nurturing Hilda’s passion for the culinary arts, the airline will generously provide three months of free local flights for her.

Really, it’s clear that Dana Air understands the profound influence Hilda’s mother had on her journey to greatness, and they are eager to express their gratitude to her.

“We are inspired by Hilda’s strength and determination for greatness,” Ettete remarked, his words resonating with sincerity and admiration.


It’s not often that a company goes above and beyond to honour individuals who exemplify exceptional talent and sheer determination.
