Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has given prop up to Guinness World Record holder and professional slackliner Jaan Roose for capturing the ‘perfect Lagos selfie.’
Roose, a professional balance trainer, achieved the feat while working on a project between the state government and an energy drinks brand, Red Bull.
The Estonian Guinness World Record holder put his expertise on display when he walked in the sky from Sterling Towers to the Onome Rig on Lagos Island during the week.
Commending Roose for his awe-inspiring execution in a series of tweets on his X (formerly Twitter) account on Saturday, November 18, 2023, Sanwo-Olu said the project highlighted the splendour of Lagos State.
