Guinness World Record holder, Tunde Onakoya has arrived Nigeria.

The Chess-in-Slums founder arrived the country on Wednesday after breaking the record for the longest-ever chess marathon with a time of 60 hours.

He was greeted in a heartwarming reception with singing and dancing at the airport.

Onakoya broke the record of Norwegian players, Hallvard Haug Flatebø and Sjur Ferkingstad, who played for 56-hour, 9-minute in 2018.

The Nigerian Chess Master on April 17 began his attempt to set a 58-hour chess marathon record at the Times Square in New York, United States.

The new record holder said he attempted to raise funds and awareness for providing educational opportunities to underprivileged children across Africa.
