Following the huge social media backlash her recent comment suggesting that she is disappointed in Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy, Samini and other bigwigs in the music space over their failure to turn up at her cook-a-thon, Chef Faila has finally come out to clear the air.
In an interview Chef Faila granted Joy Prime in the early hours of Friday, January 12, Chef Faila said that she expected Shatta Wale to be on the grounds to support her because the boss of Shatta Movement had earlier said on his Facebook page that he would be visiting Chef Faila just as she did for for Afua Asantewaa Aduonum during her singathon.
Chef Faila during the interview said: “If it was something bad about the North, everyone would have been talking about it. Not a single big musician showed up for North on this project. Not Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy, Samini, etc.”
“It was Kwabena Kwabena who passed through. There were a lot of expectations that we were going to see some of the artistes we support so much from this angle show up and support us. Believe me, if I see Stonebwoy or Shatta Wale’s song, I can sing it to amaze you, but nobody showed up for us, and so they owe us an apology,” Chef Faila added.
Well, the comment infuriated many, including some of the people who turned up in their numbers to support her as many of then feel she was being ungrateful and entitled.
According to some of these netizens, she should rather praise those who came out to support her and stop attacking those who could not make it to the venue.

However speaking on TV3’s Newday show on Thursday, January 18, 2024, Chef Faila said that her comments were misinterpreted.
She added that people took her comments out of context and stressed that she forgives all the people who insulted her for no reason.
Chef Faila commenced her GWR longest cooking marathon from 1st to 10th January at the Modern City hotel in Tamale. She completed the challenge in 227 hours, 00 minutes, and 02 seconds, which is above Uganda’s chef Dorcus Mirembe, popularly known as Mama D’s 144 hours, who is awaiting Guinness World Records’ validation.
