Cook-A-Thon: Ugandan chef Mama D gives up on GWR challenge after hearing that Faila has done almost 240 hours

In an intriguing turn of events regarding the Guinness World Records attempt sweeping across Africa, Ugandan Chef Dorcus Mirembe, affectionately known as Mama D, has decided to forgo another endeavor to secure the coveted title for the longest cooking marathon by an individual.

This decision comes as Mama D closely follows the remarkable feat of Ghana’s Failatu Abdul-Razak, who is aiming to reach an astonishing 270 hours of continuous cooking by the end of January 10.

Having reportedly cooked for an impressive 144 hours and awaiting confirmation from the Guinness World Records, Mama D revealed her stance on X in response to the news of Failatu Abdul-Razak’s ambitious 240-hour cooking marathon, to surpass the current record holder, Irish Chef Alan Fisher.

Consequently, she has chosen not to pursue this endeavor any further.

When a commenter suggested that Mama D should wait for Chef Failatu to complete her cook-a-thon before attempting another one, Mama D disclosed that she has firmly decided against returning to the kitchen and cooking for days on end, solely to be recognized as the individual with the longest cooking time in the world.

She retorted, “Kindly read and understand,I meant we are creating a new record not participating in the Cookathon again.”

Chef Faila’s Cook-A-Thon ends today, January 10

Chef Failatu Abdul-Razak is ending her Guinness World Record for the longest cooking session by a single person today, January 10.

Her manager says that their choice is based on their opinion and what’s best for the cook.

However, Chef Failatu’s management said that the chef claimed she wanted to keep cooking even after her medical team said she was healthy enough to do so, but they persuaded her to accept their choice and stop the run.

Her managers said that there would be an after-party to thank the people of Ghana for all their help as she tried to break the Guinness World Record for the longest cooking run by a single person.

Chef Failatu Abdul-Razak, who lives in Tamale in the northern region, is starting the Guinness World Record attempt for the longest cooking run by a single person.

Chef Failatu Abdul-Razak now holds the Guinness World Record for the longest cooking marathon, beating the record set by Ugandan chef Dorcus Mirembe, better known as Mama D. The new record is 144 hours and 20 minutes.

Since then, Chef Failatu Abdul-Razak has worked more than 200 hours and is set to finish in 240 hours.
