“Enough with the record-a-thons” – Guinness World Record issues warning to Nigerians

Recently, Nigerians have been making concerted efforts to break various Guinness World Records in different categories.

It all began when a Nigerian chef named Hilda Baci shattered the record for the longest cooking hours by an individual.

Since then, there have been rumors circulating about Nigerians attempting to break records for the longest kissing hour, the longest movie-watching hour, the longest singing hour, the longest dancing hour, and a few other intriguing feats.

Amidst this flurry of record-breaking attempts, a Nigerian news platform Pulsenigeria247 shared a post revealing the response from Guinness World Records to an individual in Nigeria who planned to break the records for “idea-a-thon” and “puff-a-thon.”
