Chef Faila’s attempt to break the world record for the longest cooking marathon by an individual has been dismissed by Guinness World Records.

A statement from the Records Management Team cited a violation of the rest break rules, resulting in an unsuccessful attempt.

Despite her failed bid, the chef thanked her supporters, saying that their "backing has been instrumental throughout this journey".

“While the outcome may not be what we anticipated, I am deeply thankful for the unwavering support from our sponsors and partners, as well as the encouragement from our fans. Your backing has been instrumental throughout this journey.

“Although this attempt did not result in a world record, it has been an invaluable experience. I am proud of the dedication and hard work put forth, and I am committed to continuing to push boundaries in the culinary world,” Faila stated in a press release signed by Kafui Dey.

In January, Failatu Abdul-Razak appeared to have broken the world record after cooking non-stop for more than 227 hours.

Politicians, including Vice-President Mahamudu Bawumia, numerous celebrities and even the Ghanaian military expressed their support for Ms Abdul-Razak throughout the cook-a-thon.
