Africans have been gaining world recognition for quite some time now, and Nigerian comedian, Gandoki, wants to join the league.

He wants to set a 48-hour record for the ‘Longest Stand-Up Comedy Performance By an Individual’. The show will hold from Thursday, 29th September, to Saturday, Oct 1st, at the Exclusive Mansions Hotel, Lagos.

Warri born Gandoki, whose real name is Tony Mofe Ereku, started out with top acts like Ali Baba and Ay, and unoficially holds the record for longest performing comedian in Nigeria.

David Scott, an American, currently holds the Guinness World Record in this category, with his 40 hours, 8 minutes performance back in 2013. But not for long sha.

If you will be attending the show, please sha keep laughing. Even if it becomes boring, plaster a smile over your face; do it for Nigeria!
