Kwame Asare Obeng, also known as Kwame A Plus, has criticized the Ghanaian media for their lack of thoroughness in reporting on Chef Smith’s supposed Guinness World Record attempt.

Speaking during a panel discussion on UTV, A Plus expressed his disappointment at the media’s failure to adhere to basic journalistic standards.

The independent parliamentary candidate for Gomoa Central emphasized the importance of the media apologizing for disseminating incorrect information. He questioned why journalists did not verify the legitimacy of Chef Smith’s claim before reporting on it, pointing out that even when objections were raised by figures like Bongo Ideas, they were dismissed by the media.

“When I asked Nana Boroo, he said the guy claimed to have received a call from Guinness World Record. The Ghanaian media does no research, no investigation. How can the whole media allow this guy to dribble them? All those media houses have to apologize to Ghanaians,” A Plus asserted.

This critique follows Chef Ebenezer Smith, also known as Chef Smith, publicly apologizing for misleading the public. In an emotional video circulating on social media, Chef Smith, accompanied by two distressed women, expressed deep remorse for his actions.

“I have committed a great sin, and I don’t even deserve to live anymore, but please forgive me and my entire family. I have sinned against the entire nation,” he confessed in Twi. Chef Smith admitted that although he applied to break the record for the longest cooking marathon, he did not receive approval from Guinness World Record but proceeded with the attempt regardless.

“I registered, but I wasn’t approved. I just wanted an opportunity to show the world the talent God has given me. I wanted the opportunity to show the world my passion for cooking and gain fame. I am sorry,” he tearfully admitted.

In his apology, Chef Smith specifically mentioned the president, the vice president, former president Mahama and his wife, as well as Nana Boroo.
