While many all over the world choose to focus on negative stories coming out from this part of the world, there are many with laudable feats.
Adetunwase Adenle is one of such citizens. He is the only Nigerian citizen who has four Guinness World Records to his name.
The teacher and artist holds records in different categories. According to the BBC, he holds the record for the biggest painting that has been painted by the largest number of people. This record was made with the aim of teaching less privileged kids how to paint, draw and celebrate Nigeria at 50.
His next record was for the highest number of children reading together in one place at the same time. This was done to encourage children to read.
He also holds the record for the highest number of children washing their hands at the same time. This was done to teach children how to be clean in order to escape diseases.
His fourth record is for the world’s biggest post office stamp which was also used to celebrate Lagos at 50.
Adenle has worked with the Lagos state government as well as NGO’s and other organisations to make his records happen.
He has also said he will continue to break records so as to touch people’s lives and bring better things for his country.
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za earlier reported that Nigerian man, Joshua Usoro, popularly known as Jason, broke another Guinness World Records in the longest dance marathon relay.
He danced for 53 hours, 28 minutes and 47 seconds in Lagos on Saturday, April 6, 2019, to hold the record. According to him, he had always dreamed of such achievement as a kid, adding that the story behind it has made him a better person in so many ways.
Jason explained how he had his first attempt in 2017 and due to some errors, he took the decision to stop.
