Ghanaian Chef Ebenezer Smith in police custody over unsettled debt

Ghanaian Chef, Ebenezer Smith, also known as Chef Smith, is in police custody in La, .

He was arrested on the same day he announced that he had secured confirmation for his attempt at the 's longest cooking marathon.

The chef was picked up at the La Palm Hotel in Accra, where the press had gathered as he explained the long road to his achievement.

Chef Smith's manager, Benny explained that the incident was occasioned by musician Nana Boro, who claimed to be owed some money by Mr. Smith.

“A few minutes into the programme, some people came to us. One identified himself as Nana Boro, the musician and one or two people. Apparently, their issue was that they were part of the old team that one way or the other supported Chef Smith during the cook-a-thon and that Chef Smith is owing them and until he settles them, he won't allow the press conference to come on,” the manager told Dr Pounds on Tuesday.

The manager further explained that despite pleas to resolve the matter after the ceremony, the security personnel did not budge, leading to the cook's eventual arrest.

Meanwhile, users are speculating over the credibility of Chef Smith's supposed Guinness World Record achievement.

Netizens have pointed out discrepancies including the key features on the plaque he showed.

But Benny said the Record is not fake adding that Guinness World Records sent them an email to confirm it.

Chef Smith started his cook-a-thon journey on February 1, 2024.

He cooked for 820 hours, ending his marathon on March 6, 2024, even though he initially targeted 1,200 hours.
