One individual of Nigerian origin has successfully concluded an extensive period of over 200 hours devoted to singing, showcasing a remarkable dedication to his craft. Additionally, another individual achieved a significant milestone by conducting a live video session lasting an impressive 100 hours on the popular social media platform, Instagram. Meanwhile, an ambitious masseuse embarked on a quest to provide continuous massages for an astounding 75-hour duration, only to succumb to exhaustion in the end.

These three individuals are part of a group consisting of over a dozen Nigerians who have set their sights on achieving Guinness World Records, showcasing a recent trend that has captured the enthusiasm of the inhabitants of Africa’s most populous nation.

Following the impressive feat of Nigerian chef Hilda Bassey, who recently accomplished the remarkable milestone of conducting the lengthiest individual cooking session ever recorded, a wave of inspiration swept across the nation, prompting Nigerians from all walks of life to embark on their quests for unique records in pursuit of instantaneous recognition and acclaim.

The captivating “cookathon” led by Bassey resonated deeply with the 200 million-strong population of Nigeria, garnering widespread attention and support from influential figures including politicians and celebrities who rallied behind her commendable endeavor. Subsequently, drawing inspiration from Bassey’s success, Lagos-based gospel singer Oluwatobi Kufeji embarked on a marathon singing session lasting an impressive 200 hours, driven by a desire to propel his career to new heights.

Expressing hope and relying on divine providence, the 39-year-old father of two shared his aspirations for a significant breakthrough in his musical journey. During a well-deserved two-hour break amidst his relentless singing endeavor, he expressed his optimism, stating, “With the grace of God, I am hopeful that a meaningful agreement will materialize, paving the way for a remarkable advancement in my music career.”

The state government of Ekiti, located in southwestern Nigeria, intervened to halt the proposed attempt by a resident named “Sugartee” to organize the longest kissing session. Citing concerns about the event’s potential health implications and moral implications, the government deemed it to be both unhealthy and morally inappropriate, prompting their decisive action to prevent its occurrence.
