The current record holder is a Nigerian art student, Chancellor Ahaghotu, who broke a decade-old record in January this year.

Artist Barry as of today, May 4 has done more than 90 hours out of the 130 and more hours she hopes to achieve in six days.

As with all marathon record-breaking attempts, the challenger is permitted a five-minute break for every continuous hour of activity or a 20-minute break when accumulated for four hours.

Her Sister, Barisa Isaaka who speaks for her disclosed that, she got the approval to embark on the journey of breaking the record sometime in December last year but due to lack of preparation, she postponed.

“Somewhere in December she told me she wanted to embark on this journey, so I encouraged her to apply and she did.
