‘Find another record to break’ – Nigerians tease Ghanaians over Chef Falia’s failed cook-a-thon record attempt


Ghanaians found themselves at the receiving end of friendly banter from their Nigerian neighbors after Ghanaian chef, Failatu Abdul-Razak, fell short in her bid to break the world record for the longest cooking marathon.

Chef Faila aimed to surpass the official 119-hour record set by Alan Fisher but announced on Sunday, March 3, that her attempt did not meet all the stringent guidelines set by the Guinness World Records (GWR).

Following the news, Nigerians took to social media to playfully tease their Ghanaian counterparts, with some poking fun at the unsuccessful attempt.

This is even more pronounced considering the fact that the most recent West African before Faila to attempt this was Nigeria’s Hilda Baci, who was successful.

Memes, jokes, and humorous comments flooded various platforms as Nigerians indulged in the long-standing tradition of friendly rivalry between the two nations.

“Ghana, find another record and break. Must you compete with Nigeria every time?” a social media user Binta Sugar said.

It’s not uncommon for Ghanaians and Nigerians to engage in light-hearted banter, often revolving around sports, entertainment, and other aspects of culture.

Despite the playful teasing, the camaraderie between the two West African countries remains strong, with both sides appreciating the humor and camaraderie that characterizes their relationship.
