What a disgrace! – Ghanaians roast ECG as ‘dumsor’ hits Chef Faila’s cook-a-thon


Some Ghanaians have taken to social media to criticize the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) after a power outage occurred during Chef Failatu’s cook-a-thon on Thursday, January 4, 2023, at the Modern City Hotel in Tamale.

Chef Faila’s cook-a-thon site was blanketed in darkness in a video, compelling those there to express their support to switch on their phone lights while murmuring.


Given the extent of worldwide attention in the Guinness World Record cool-a-thon effort, several Ghanaians on social media have called the situation a “disgrace.”

Others cynically accused ECG of obstructing Chef Faila’s attempt to break the world record for the longest cooking marathon, which would place Ghana in the limelight on a worldwide scale.

“A disgraceful country like Ghana” one individual said.

Another person fumed: “ECG is now gaining notoriety in gracing us in the midst of important occasions and events. Can’t do something about that?”

“ECG is an enemy of progress. Sing-a-thon you off light, cook-a-thon too you off light?” a concerned individual quizzed.

Another person bemoaned why organizers did not make provision for an extra source of electricity in case of a power outage.

“Well isn’t that supposed to be held at a hotel and don’t they’ve a backup plant.”

Chef Faila’s cook-a-thon attempt has entered Day 5 after having crossed over 100hrs.

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