Chef Failatu Abdul Razak continues her quest to break the current Guinness World Record for the longest cooking marathon: cook-a-thon.

Chef Abdul Razak is the first Ghanaian to attempt the feat and today, Wednesday, January 3, 2024, makes day 3 of her attempt.

Scores of Ghanaians from all parts of the country have been trooping to the venue for the cook-a-thon to show their support to Failatu Abdul Razak, who is the wife of a military personnel, Lieutenant Reginald Ofosuhene Adjei.

On Tuesday, January 2, 2024, soldiers from the 69 Airborne Force of the Ghana Armed Forces based at Tamale, stormed the venue of the cook-a-thon.

The military personnel can be seen in viral videos singing and dancing in front of the chef, in their bid to energise her.

Brigadier General Matthew Kweku Essien, the General Officer Commanding officer of Northern Command of the Ghana Armed Forces, who led the troops to the venue for the programme, said they were there to support their ‘wife.’

He disclosed that the army previously engaged Chef Failatu to make sure she was ready and also psych her up.

The Brigadier General also disclosed that the medical team ensuring that Failatu is able to stand on her feet for the entire duration of her attempt is from the army.

“The medical team is from us to ensure that our wife is fit to be able to continue what she is doing,” he said.

About the competition:

After media personality Afua Asantewaa Aduonum’s sing-a-thon world record attempt officially ended a few days ago, another Ghanaian has started an attempt to break another Guinness World Record.

Even as hundreds and thousands crossed over into the year 2024 in churches and places of worship, others did so at places of entertainment or with friends and families.

Over in the north, Chef Failatu Abdul Razak started an attempt to break the current Guinness World Record for the longest cooking marathon on Monday.

She is aiming to clock a 120-hour cook-a-thon with the event hosted at the Modern City Hotel in Tamale.

Initial videos shared by the state broadcaster, GTV, showed Failatu and her assistants in their glass-shielded kitchen setup embossed with the images of Chef Faila.

Cook-a-thon became popular in 2023 after Nigerian Chef Hilda Baci broke the then-world record. An Irish chef, however, overthrew her months later.

Alan Fisher cooked for 119 hours, 57 minutes and 16 seconds.
