Ghana’s Chef Reaches 113 Hour Mark In GWR Cook-A-Thon Attempt


Ghanaian chef, Failatu Abdul-Razak has reached 113 hour mark in the Guinness World Record cook-a-thon attempt.

Recall that Chef Faila has been cooking since January 1st to break the Guiness world record.

As of Friday afternoon, the chef had cooked for over 113 hours at a hotel in the northern city of Tamale.

Failatu Abdul-Razak aims to break the Guinness World Record for a cook-a-thon of 119 hours and 57 minutes held by Irish chef Alan Fisher.

Celebrities, politicians and ordinary people have flocked to the hotel to watch the chef cook and enjoy the food.

“It is history in the making and as a Ghanaian I’m proud to be part of it,” said supporter Fuseini Musah.

West Africa has been gripped in a frenzy of world record attempts in several categories since Nigerian chef Hilda Baci claimed the world cooking record last May with a 100-hour performance before being dethroned by Fisher.

Chef Abdul-Razak is reportedly aiming to cook for 200 hours.

But there have been concerns raised about the endeavour’s likely mental toll on chef Abdul-Razak.

Last month, Ghanaian Afua Asantewaa Owusu Aduonum was forced to end her attempt to break the world record for the longest time spent singing, after her medical team said her body showed signs of mental stress.

Abdul-Razak had said at the outset that her attempt was a “national assignment” on behalf of Ghana and its citizens.
