The Chefs Association Of Ghana’s General Secretary Has Not Received Chef Smith’s Registration

Despite wearing the Chefs Association of Ghana’s emblem while attempting to set a new Guiness World Record, Chef Ebenezer Smith is not registered with the organization, according to their statement.

Guinness World Records (GWR) stated that they were unaware of Chef Smith’s attempt to break the record for the longest individual cooking marathon; this correction follows.

General Secretary of the Association Peter Agbovi said in an interview with GH One TV that “you can call him a chef because he is a professional chef, but Chef Smith is not registered with our association.”

Peter Agbovi went on to say that the group was taken aback to see their emblem on Smith’s attire because they were just made aware of the cooking event through social media.

They tried to get Smith to join the Association, but he refused, therefore they declined to support his attempt at setting a record.

We were first made aware of it after he had begun his cook-a-thon and we noticed that he was dressed in anything bearing our brand. We got in touch with his team and instructed them to register with the association in order to use our logo.

We never supported him or shared his videos on any of our social media accounts because of this. We didn’t hear from him until the announcement, even after his cook-a-thon,” he added.

Regarding the GWR certificate controversy, Peter Agbovi expressed his disappointment, saying that the organization still hasn’t gotten in touch with him to find out why he did what he did.

“That’s a phony Guinness World Records certificate, which is sad. Seeing a fellow chef emerge with a phony certificate was upsetting, and we’re not sure if it was his fault or not. We haven’t had a chance to talk to him yet,” he stated.

What took place?

From February 1 to March 6, 2024, Ghanaian chef Ebenezer Smith held his cooking marathon at Spintex, Accra’s Amadia Shopping Center.

Chef Smith claimed to have broken the record for the longest cooking marathon on July 2, 2024.

Guinness World Records (GWR), however, refuted his claim, claiming they never received an application from him, that GWR did not recognize the certificate he produced, and that Alan Fisher of Ireland still holds the official record.

Further questions were created by Chef Smith’s arrest during a press conference. Amadia Shopping Center, the event sponsors, clarified that they were not aware of Chef Smith’s planned news appearance and that they had an agreement with him to support his attempt.

Because of their relationship with him and the fact that they hadn’t heard from him since the event, they wanted to make sure his GWR certificate was genuine.
