Guiness World Record

Guinness World Records (GWR) is a reference book published every year in different languages around the world published every year, which gives all the records achieved in a very wide range of fields and activities. For example, the names of the oldest, tallest, richest and fastest people in the world are all given.
It was first published in 1955 by the Guinness Brewery in Ireland and has since become one of the world’s most well-known and frequently read reference books.

Since the World Guinness Records was introduced globally not much is known about Nigerians that have been able to break records or make it to the Guinness World Records. We only hear of European, American and Asian country coming out top on the Guinness World Records.
However, in the few months that has been spent in this year 2023, three Nigerians have become holders in the Guinness World Records; Nigerian chef, Hilda Effiong Bassey, popularly known as Hilda Baci broke the Guinness world record for the longest cooking marathon by an individual after cooking for more than 87 hours, 45 minutes, record previously held by Lata Tondon from India in 2019; Gbenga Ezekiel successfully erased Bangladesh's Rasel Islam's record of 262 skips in one minute on one foot to set a new Guinness World Record with 265 skips and Divine Ikubor aka Rema – Record for ‘Calm Down’ as the first No.1 Hit on The Official MENA Chart, the world’s first regional streaming chart.
