A Nigerian Olawunmi Bayode has set a new Guinness Record in the “Longest Marathon Reading Aloud” Category.

Bayode, father of three kids, logged 120 hours at 15.30 today at the YouRead Library Yaba in Lagos, beating the previous record set by Nepali Deepak Sharma Bajagain.

The latter had 113 hours 15 minutes in 2008.

Another Nepalese, Tudikhel Ground tied the record.

Bajagain’s book reading began on September 19 and ended on September 24, 2008.

He recited 17 different books from 13 authors during his record attempt.

Bayode began reading at 1:30 PM on Monday, February 26, 2018 and ended it 15.30 on Saturday.

He announced the record on his Facebook page, saying:

“Hello everybody, something just happened right now! My name is Bayode Treasures Olubunmi(Olawunmi) – I have just finished reading aloud for 120 hours non-stop!

I did it for the CULTURE!”.

Bayode studied at Osun State Polytechnic, Iree and Comprehensive High School, Ketu in Lagos.

“I have always loved to read good materials right from when I was in secondary school. I am doing this for the youths,” he wrote on twitter, before he began the record setting reading marathon.

  11. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The text in your content seem to be running off the screen in Firefox.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something
    to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
    The layout look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon. Kudos

  12. I have been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet
    I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.
    In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did,
    the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  13. Hi, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam remarks?
    If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you
    can advise? I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any help is
    very much appreciated.

  14. I’m curious to find out what blog system you are using?
    I’m having some small security problems with my latest blog and I would
    like to find something more safe. Do you have
    any suggestions?

    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser
    compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
    The style and design look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Cheers

  16. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this website.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and appearance.
    I must say that you’ve done a amazing job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads super quick for me on Internet explorer.
    Superb Blog!

  17. Wow that was strange. I just wrote an incredibly long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t show up.
    Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Anyways, just wanted to say fantastic blog!

  18. I’m gone to inform my little brother, that
    he should also pay a quick visit this webpage on regular
    basis to take updated from most up-to-date gossip.

  19. I do consider all of the ideas you’ve introduced for your post.
    They are very convincing and can definitely work.
    Nonetheless, the posts are very brief for starters.
    May you please lengthen them a bit from next time? Thanks for
    the post.

  20. Have you ever considered publishing an ebook or guest authoring on other websites?
    I have a blog based upon on the same ideas you discuss and would really like to have you
    share some stories/information. I know my audience would
    appreciate your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to shoot
    me an email.

  21. This could be a good way of detecting if any spy app is really present on your Android phone or not.
    You can use a free of charge telephone tracker app but they
    are really effortless to detect and do not do
    close to as very much as this app does. Right after all, it really is your corporation that feeds and outfits your relatives and puts a ceiling over their mind.

  22. With this Blackberry spy software you will not be left in the dark.

    You can use a free of charge telephone tracker app but they are really effortless
    to detect and do not do close to as very much as
    this app does. This IP address then can be mapped to general geolocation data.

  23. That’s why they see no issue in staying unproductive or even with stealing from you.
    Whichever method you plan to use, you cannot do this on your own very easily; you will need some extra equipment.
    Right after all, it really is your corporation that feeds and outfits your relatives and puts a ceiling over their mind.

  24. If you are purchasing a new phone for yourself, your teen, or your significant other, seek out a GPS-enabled model.
    For example, you maybe the boss of a company and suspect your employee is
    abusing his or her phone privileges. This IP address then can be mapped to general geolocation data.

  25. There are voice activated recorders, little cameras, and even GPS
    devices out there. Taking the computer repair specialist route also has its
    ups and downs, but perhaps more advantages than disadvantages.
    Do you suspect that your employee is performing something mistaken with your enterprise.
