Everybody wants to be in the Guinness Book of World Records even if their greatest accomplishment was buying petrol amidst a long queue at the filing station.
But, only few ever make it there and our very own celebrities are part of those few.
From AY racking in about N182 million at the box office for his “30 Days in Atlanta” movie to DJ Obi deejaying his way into the books, this year has seen two Nigerian celebrities make it into the Guinness Book of World Records for great accomplishments.
Below are four Nigerian celebs that made it into the Guinness Book of World Records
1. Ayo Makun a.k.a AY
The 2014 hit comedy raked in about N182 million at the box office earning it the highest-grossing Nollywood movie.
It was officially recognized by the 2017 Guinness World Records as one of the films with the highest domestic gross in the territories of Bollywood, Nollywood and Hollywood.
Note that 30 Days in Atlanta became the first Nollywood movie to be featured in that category.
After grueling endless hours of sets, dancing, coverage, support, and social media dissemination, DJ Obi pulled through the mark set by Polish DJ, Norberto Loco’s 200-hour record. At 1:28pm on Saturday, July 2, 2016, Nigeria’s DJ Obi set the new world record for Longest Marathon Club DJing previously set at 200 hours. His new record stands at 229 hours and 58 minutes of straight DJing.
The athlete grabbed the title from NaibSubedar Azad Singh, an Indian soldier.
Meanwhile, other Nigerians have achieved one feat or the other too. From Chiddy of Chiddy Bang who nabbed the longest rap free style title to 300,000 students from the 600 public secondary schools in Lagos brushing their teeth simultaneously at different locations and the largest mosquito net built in Nigeria, we sure are doing things.
