Nigerians have recently made concerted efforts to break multiple Guinness World Records in various categories.
Since then, Nigerians have set many records to break, and Guinness World Records has issued warnings to Nigerians.
It all started when a Nigerian chef named Hilda Baci broke the record for the longest individual cooking hours.
Since then, stories have circulated that Nigerians are seeking to break records for the longest kissing hour, longest movie-watching hour, longest singing hour, longest dance hour, and a few more intriguing accomplishments.
Among the rush of record-breaking attempts, a Nigerian news site Pulsenigeria247 uploaded a piece revealing Guinness World Records’ response to a Nigerian who wanted to break the records for “idea-a-thon” and “puff-a-thon.”
Guinness World Records issued a caution in the comments section, saying, “Please, enough with the record-a-thons.”
Concerned Nigerians quickly went to the comment area after reading this statement from Guinness World Records.
Here are some reactions:
