Nigerian man who broke Guinness World Record



This could be seen through the actions of Tonye Solomon who is popularly known as ‘D-boy’. The 28-year-old man who hails from Bayelsa has been able to break the Guinness world record by walking a distance of fifty-two kilometres with the ball balanced on his head. Achieving this feat had always been Solomon’s dreams. Now he would have his name written as the winner of the category “The greatest distance travelled with the football balanced on the head”.

He attempted doing this sometimes last month but was unable to complete the task when it started to rain. He had walked a distance of thirty-eight kilometres out of the supposed sixty kilometres when it started to pour last month. However, he did not allow this incident to deter him from achieving his goals as he tried doing the walk again this month.
