Ghanaian Chef, Ebenezer Smith, popularly known as Chef Smith has expressed regret over his counterfeit Guinness World Record (GWR) certificate.

He has asked Ghanaians and the world to forgive him.

“I render a very big apology on this big platform and I apologize to the world that I am so sorry and I don’t deserve to live. I was only chasing after a livelihood and now this embarrassment has come upon me,” Mr. Smith pleaded.

His apology comes after Chef Smith on July 2 convened a press briefing at La Palm Beach Hotel to declare his purported achievement of setting the longest individual cooking marathon record.

But checks with GWR indicated that the certificate Chef Smith showcased at the press conference is not from GWR. 

“No, it is not true at all. He does not hold the GWR title, and that is not our certificate”, the email from Madalyn Biefield, Public Relations Manager of Guinness World Records disclosed.

Chef Smith has admitted that he forged the Guinness World Records certificate.

“I forged the Guinness World Records certificate. It started with lies, it had to end in lies.”


“Guinness World Records have a lot of certificates on their online pages, so I just picked one and edited with my details.”
