There is a hysteria for doing something unthinkable or highly improbable to be recognised since a Nigerian chef, Hilda Baci, documented her attempt to break a world record.

Ghanaians and Nigerians especially, have supported Baci’s efforts to break the current record of 87 hours and 45 minutes set in Rewa, central India in 2019 by Indian chef Lata Tondon.

Though her efforts are being verified by the Guinness World Records, both countries have extolled her with Ghanaians surprisingly claiming Baci to be Ghanaian.

Ghana and Nigeria have battled to take the most impressive African country title.

It may seem like Nigeria might have the upper hand with Baci’s Guinness World Records. But Ghana can already boast of being directly involved in a world record.

On June 23, 2010, during the FIFA World Cup held in Johannesburg, South Africa, a historic moment occurred as Kevin-Prince Boateng of Ghana and Jerome Boateng of Germany became the first brothers to face each other in a World Cup match.

Born to a Ghanaian father but raised by different mothers in Berlin, the brothers had spent considerable time together during their childhood.

However, they made distinct decisions regarding their national allegiances in their professional careers. Kevin-Prince Boateng represented Ghana, while Jerome Boateng opted to play for Germany.

The match between Ghana and Germany provided a unique and memorable opportunity for the two brothers to compete against each other on the world stage.

Meanwhile, Efya, a renowned Ghanaian singer, is embarking on an extraordinary mission to establish a new world record for the longest song ever created. 

“If I can break a record, it will be for the longest song. Sometimes you can do the longest song recorded. I don’t have to be on my feet singing continuously. I could sing for a couple of days; I could hold a note for long. These dirges we have in Ghana are an example, we have 15 minutes of such songs. I could sing for 30 hours if I want to break the record. Hilda recorded 100 hours because she was cooking,” she told media practitioner Abeiku Santana.
