‘Enough with the record-a-thons’ – Guinness World Record warns Nigerians

    Published By:

    Guinness World Records has finally issued a stern warning to Nigerians regarding the numerous record-a-thons trending on social media.

    It all started when a Nigerian chef, Hilda Baci staged a famous Cook-a-thon challenge in Lagos in a bid to break the Guinness World Record for the longest cooking marathon by an individual.

    In June she was officially certified by the body as the new record holder.

    Since then, Nigerians have been aiming to break records for the longest crying, the longest movie-watching hour, the longest singing hour, the longest kissing hour, and a few other intriguing feats.

    Reacting to the record-a-thons, in what seems like a warning, GWR noted that it is enough.

    The record body wrote, “Please enough with the record-a-thons.”

    In a separate statement on its official Twitter page, GWR advised people to get title approval from their team before attempting any marathon.

    “We love the record-a-thon enthusiasm but we would suggest getting a record title approved by our team before attempting these marathon records!”.

    Reacting to the body’s statement, Nigerians has flooded the comments section to voice their opinions, while others made a joke out of it.

    ___olufela: At this point … it will be recorded in the Guinness book of record that Nigerians didn’t allow them to rest in 2023 because of records- a-thon.”

    tobijamescandids: “The number of times Nigerians have announced attempts to break record is a record on its own.”

    officialj_j: This is so embarrassing…. Later you guys will wonder why Nigerians are always on ban list… SMH.”

    mamee_lee: “Use me as your “enough” button please. Nigerians make una rest ooo.”

    igweofd.east: “Nigeria, First country to be suspended from GWR.”

    mikkytorino said: “Nooo! GWR should wait ooo cus. “I want to break the record for the longest heartbreak but i just need Jennifer to break my heart.”

    @airsplech said: “Nigerians did Sing-a-thon, Cook-a-thon (100x), Kiss-a-thon, Cry-a-thon, Massage-a-thon, Read-a-thon and Se.x-a-thon. LET THE “thon” breefff.”

    temikeezy said: “Our people must wreck everything they lay their hands on. US visa, UK visa, GWR, anything wreckable.”

    @superstar_djsdon said: “Congratulations to the entire Nigerian for breaking another world record as the only country warned by Guinness World Records to stop breaking any records again.”
