Lagos@50: Group attempts to break Guinness world record in Maryland marathon theatrical performance

As part of the plans to celebrate the Golden Jubilee edition of the Centre of Excellence, Lagos State, a group, Team Nigeria, has commenced a marathon theatre performance in a bid to enter into the famous Guinness Book of records.

The group led by Olafemi George commenced an open air theatrical performance at the popular Maryland roundabout on Ikorodu road yesterday, Monday, March 27, 2017.

The performance which is scheduled to continue for 24 hours commenced at exactly 2:00pm yesterday and would come to an end at the same time today, Tuesday, March 28, 2017.

Speaking on this, George said “the idea is to host an uninterrupted theatrical performance of 150 hours in a bid to set us and the State on the international scene and take a prime place in the Guinness Book of Records as the convener of the longest marathon theatre performance.”

“We started this 24 hour performance yesterday and it will end at exactly 2:00pm today, Tuesday, March 28, 2017. The next set of performance will hold from Thursday 6 and close on Saturday 8, April 2017 at the Lekki Phase I roundabout.”

Meanwhile, the Team Nigeria Group which comprises members from different tribe and ethical background earlier unveiled a 7-feet anniversary T-Shirt, tagged ‘Eko Shirt’ to the Lagos State Government.

Commenting on this feat, George said “the meaningful engagement of youths has helped in giving qualitative life to some of them who were initially victims of neglect and societal misdemeanour.”
