Curiosity caught up with one chef in Ghana, chef Ebenezer Emeka Smith, trying to break a world record for the longest cook-a-thon.

The chef together with his sponsors organized an event to begin the cook-a-thon in a bid to break the individual world record.

In a twist of events, the chef produced a well-framed World Guinness Record certificate indicating that he has broken the record.

The chef enjoyed the fame and hype of breaking the world record that came to a halt a few weeks later when the Guinness World Record confirmed that the longest cooking marathon was completely fake and also clarified that the plaque was not genuine.

This caused the authorities to arrest and charge him for defrauding not only the Guinness World Record but also his sponsors and fans.

Dividends Growth Hustler@DividendIncome_·This is why integrity matters. It's not worth claiming a title without the effort. Takes years to build, milliseconds to lose. One lie and your credibility goes up in flames.
