A Nigerian man, Oluwatobi Kufeji, has embarked on the longest singing marathon in his quest to set a new Guinness World Record.
The marathon kicked off in Lagos on July 5 and is expected to run until July 13.
Kufeji had previously announced his ambitious plan to deliver a 200-hour honors program as he aimed to surpass the previous record of 105 hours set by Indian singer Sunil Waghmare in 2012.
“Guinness World Records has accepted my application to surpass the LONGEST SINGING MARATHON of 105 hours currently held by Sunil Waghmare (Indian) since March 2012 and the LONGEST CONCERT BY A SOLO ARTIST of 501 hours held by Guinness World Records, currently owned by by Kuzhalmannam Ramakrishnan (Indian).
“These marathons are run separately. I firmly believe that I will break both records. I can do everything in Christ who gives me strength,” she wrote.
As noted by our correspondent on Kufeji’s Instagram account, he has already exceeded 106 hours.
However, he’s not the only Nigerian to attempt to break Guinness World Records recently.
The talented Hilda Baci recently set a new record for the longest one-person cooking marathon. Damilola Adeparusi, another chef from Ekiti State, has followed in her footsteps and embarked on a five-day culinary marathon, further adding to the wave of record attempts. Also, a chef, Adeyeye Adeola, recently embarked on a 150-hour cooking marathon in Ile Oluji/Oke Igbo Local Government Area of ​​Ondo State to surpass Baci’s record.
