However, updating her followers on Monday, Faila’s coordinator, Kafui Dey, announced that “a statement from the Records Management Team cited a violation of the rest break rules, resulting in an unsuccessful attempt”.


While appreciating her fans in spite of the setback, Chef Faila noted that she doesn’t take their important role in her path for granted.
