Guinness World Record: Nigerian Woman Attempts Nail Painting Marathon Record

Nineteen-year-old Nigerian woman, Lisha Seleme Dachor, recently accomplished a remarkable feat by completing a 72-hour nail painting marathon in hopes of setting a Guinness World Record for the longest nail painting by an individual. The marathon, which saw her paint over 4,000 nails, concluded on Wednesday amidst great anticipation.

The event took place at Tamaralds Events Center, Old Airport, Jos, where Plateau State Commissioner for Youths and Sports showed his support by presenting her with a token of N100,000.

Now awaiting Guinness World Records’ review of her attempt, Ms. Dachor revealed that her motivation for taking on this challenge was to challenge stereotypes surrounding teen mothers, like herself.

“I want to inspire people, especially single mothers, because many underestimate our capabilities,” she explained to the BBC.

Having worked as a professional nail technician for nearly three years, she also aims to highlight the talent and resilience of women from northern Nigeria.

Furthermore, Ms. Dachor hopes that her Guinness World Record attempt will shine a positive light on Plateau, her home state. Plateau, situated at the crossroads of Nigeria’s predominantly Muslim north and largely Christian south, boasts diverse communities. Despite enduring decades of insecurity and conflict among different ethnic and religious groups, which has resulted in numerous casualties, Ms. Dachor emphasizes the region’s beauty and unity.

“People often judge Plateau based on surface appearances. Beyond our ethnic challenges, Plateau is a wonderful place. I received support from individuals representing various ethnic backgrounds throughout my endeavor,” she affirmed.
