The contest which started in 2017 has never been won by a Nigerian. Speaking to Legit.ng, Raufikat stated that she had entered the contest because of her family's encouragement and her desire to bake.
"I never imagined I would even get as far as halfway let alone win. I applied because of my family's encouragement and I went there to bake my best."
The Kwara state indigene who has been baking since 2008 sharing her experience in the contest with Legit.ng said:
"My experience was entirely positive, I made so many great friends that I'm still in touch with and my motivation was just to keep my head down and bake the best I could based on what I knew. I never went in with an ‘I'm here to win' attitude, I went to challenge myself by baking in a high-pressure situation with the best home bakers in Canada and that's what I did."
