120 moved to 240 hours: Chef Faila extends cook-a-thon record duration


Failatu Abdul-Razak, a Chef, has extended his cook-a-thon to seven days in order to beat the Guinness World Record (GWR) for the most cooking hours by one individual.

The initial period indicated before to the event was from January 1 to January 5, which equates to 120 hours of cooking time to cover five days.


However, information presented by Failatu’s cook-a-thon crew several days into the event revealed the necessity to extend the cooking hours to more than 144 hours.

According to Joy News, Failatu is now attempting to accumulate 240 hours.

In an interview with the Ghana News Agency in Tamale, Mr Damba Naa, Manager of Failatu Abdul-Razak, stated, “The idea is no longer five days.” We’ll be there for six to seven days.”

He claimed that the team had to make such a move in order for the Chef to establish a name for himself since a Ugandan lady had previously cooked for 144 hours in order to break the current record.

He said; “For us to be able to break the record and set any, we have to go beyond the 144 hours.”

Chef Dorcus Mirembe, popularly known as Mama D, is a Ugandan woman who successfully broke the current cook-a-thon record by cooking for 144 hours.

She began cooking on December 23 and finished on December 28 to break Alan Fisher’s existing record of 120 hours.

Mama D’s record is yet to be confirmed by the GWR officials.
