UNICAL Student Begins 188-Hour Write-A-Thon

Daniel Ehis Aiguokhian, a student at the University of Calabar (UNICAL), has began his mission to write nonstop for 188 hours.

The student’s goal is to break the Guinness World Record (GWR) for the most hours spent writing fiction and nonfiction writings by an individual.

In June, Aiguohkian announced his intention to commence on the daunting feat.

He started his write-a-thon challenge on October 1 and is expected to end on October 8.

During the 7-day marathon writing session, Aiguokhian will write and produce two books each day, one on fiction and the other on non-fiction.

As of the time of this report, the student has written for more than 40 hours.

Aiguokhian’s write-a-thon attempt adds to the long list of world records that Nigerians have been attempting from the year 2023.

Hilda Baci, a Nigerian chef, was recognized in June for the longest individual cooking marathon. She finished in 93 hours and 11 minutes.

Baci’s achievement sparked a torrent of desire by Nigerians to break her cooking record, while others strove to create world records in a variety of industries.

Another chef, Damilola Adeparusi, began a five-day culinary marathon.

Adeyeye Adeola then sought to break Baci’s record with a 150-hour spell.

In the similar vein, Temitope Adebayo, an Ibadan-based chef, revealed his desire to cook for more than 120 hours.

Hassan Joshua Bature, a computer science lecturer at the Federal University of Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE), has also announced plans for a 150-hour teaching marathon.

These attempts prompted the GWR to send a brief statement to those wishing to break new world records.

The British reference book recommended participants in the statement to properly confirm with “our team” before attempting to break any world records.
