According to GWR, its team would not ever monitor a record for the longest marathon crying.

The Guinness World Records has finally reacted to a Nigerian man, Tembu Ebere’s attempt to break its record for the longest crying marathon by an individual.

In a bid to bag the coveted Guinness World Record plaque, like Nigerian chef Hilda Baci, Tembu Ebere embarked on a 100-hour crying marathon.

He started the bizarre attempt on Sunday, July 9, 2023, with the goal of crying continuously for seven days.

However, during the attempt, he suffered partial blindness, but this didn’t deter him as he was bent on achieving his goal. “I had to re-strategize and reduce my wailing,” he said.

Speaking with the BBC, he revealed that he started experiencing severe headaches, puffy eyes, and a swollen face from the constant crying before going temporarily blind for 45 minutes.

Reacting to Ebere’s attempt, GWR, via its official Twitter handle, revealed that “the longest marathon crying” is not part of its category of records.

According to GWR, its team would not ever monitor a record for the longest marathon crying.

“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”,
