Nigeria might have a new Guinness World Records holder.
Nigerian artist Lola Mewu sought to break the Guinness World Record for the longest time spent painting, and she has achieved this great feat.
From Saturday, October 28, 2023, to Tuesday, October 31, 2023, Lola Mewu painted different artworks, some of which have already been auctioned.
Now she has completed the feat, having painted for 72 hours, beating the previous record holder, Roland Palmerts of France, who painted 60 paintings in 60 hours.
