Nigerian John Obot breaks Guinness World Record for read-aloud marathon

Screenshot-20230917-164834
John Obot from Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria, has broken the Guinness World Record (GWR) for the longest marathon read-aloud event.

Obot beat the 124-hour mark set by Rysbai Isakov, an Indian who previously held the title, by clocking 145 hours.

Obot started reading on Tuesday, September 12, 2023, at Cityview Hall (LETTERS HOUSE), Watbridge Hotels & Suites in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, by 1 pm after some technical hitches with equipment and power failures that invalidated his initial attempt of over 45 hours.
