Blessing Jibromah, the Nigerian singer, is attempting to set a new world record for the longest singing marathon by an individual.


The singer announced that the 144-hour attempt will commence from July 27 to August 2.

The exercise will be held at Unique Park Gardens, Sky Memorial, Zone 5, Abuja.

Jibromah said the exercise has been approved by the Guinness World Records (GWR).


Speaking about the attempt, Jibromah said she is attempting the record to display “endurance, talent and community spirit”.

She also said she aims to inspire aspiring singers and performers to dream big and push beyond their limits.

“I am thrilled to announce my desire to break the GWR for the Longest Singing Marathon (Sing-A-Thon),” she said.


“This record-breaking event promises to be spectacular; showcasing endurance, talent and community spirit.

“I am driven not just by the challenge itself but by the potential benefits it can bring to Nigerians.”

She also disclosed she will have a “stamina check” before the exercise for 48 hours on Friday.

“I will be having my 48 hours stamina check for Guinness World Records longest singing marathon on Saturday 9 am, the 15th of June until Monday 9am, the 17th of June,” she added.



India’s Sunil Waghmare is the record holder for the longest singing marathon. He sang for 105-hour at the Continent DC, Washington DC, in the United States in 2012.

Jibromah is not the first Nigerian singer attempting to surpass Waghmare’s record.

Isaac Geralds, the US-based Nigerian singer, attempted to break the world record earlier this month. However, Geralds stopped the exercise at 98 hours, 26 minutes due to health reasons.
