Ebenezer Smith, a Ghanaian chef known by the moniker Chef Smith, has issued an apology over his falsified Guinness World Record (GWR) certificate.

During a press conference held in Accra on Tuesday, Chef Smith claimed he had set a new GWR for the longest individual cooking marathon, clocking in an impressive 802 hours and 25 minutes.

However, upon verification, GWR confirmed that the certificate Chef Smith displayed did not come from them. According to GWR, “The current and true record holder is: The longest cooking marathon (individual) is 119 hr 57 min 16 sec and was achieved by Alan Fisher (Ireland) in Matsue, Shimane, Japan, from 28 September to 3 October 2023.”

In a tearful interview with Serwaa Amihere on GHOne TV, Chef Smith apologized to Ghanaians and the international community for the deception and disgrace his actions had caused.

“I want to apologize deeply on this significant platform. To the world, I am truly sorry. In my desperation to make a living, I made a grave mistake. I don’t deserve to live. I beg for forgiveness from the entire nation,” he pleaded.
