Guinness World Record Reacts As Man Went Blind While Attempting ‘Cry-a-thon’

Guinness world record (GWR) has reacted to viral news of a Nigerian man going temporarily blind while attempting to break a record for the longest crying marathon.

Gists9ja recalls that the man identified as Tembu Ebere, who has a Cameroonian heritage, attempted to break a Guinness World Record for crying for seven days, non-stop.

Ebere, in an interview published on BBC on Sunday, revealed that he went partially blind for 45 minutes while attempting the challenge.

He explained that he had to reevaluate his approach and reduce the intensity of his wailing as it was causing him headaches.

However, GWR on Wednesday, dissociated itself from Ebere’s feat.

They noted that they did not approve such a quest, adding that they would never be able to monitor such a record.

Just to quell some recent rumours, we wouldn’t ever monitor a record for the longest marathon crying. Here’s what can be monitored by our team”, the body wrote.

In May, Nigerian chef, Hilda Baci, hit the limelight after setting a new Guinness World Record (GWR) for the longest cooking marathon (cook-a-thon) by an individual.

The Akwa-Ibom native cooked for 100 hours to beat the 87 hours 45 minutes record previously set by Lata Tondon, the Indian chef, in 2019.

Hilda was certified by the British reference book in June but with a time of 93 hours 11 minutes.
