A Nigerian lady, Treasure Eleojo Abraham, has taken to social media to share the approval message she received from Guinness World Records (GWR) as she gets set to begin her journey to break a world record.
According to the Idoma, Benue-born lady, who doubles as a relationship coach and real estate consultant, she would be breaking the record for ‘the most self-portrait photographs (selfies) taken in three minutes.’

The attempt took place a day before the release of Indian actor Akshay Kumar’s movie titled ‘Selfiee’.
Announcing her attempt in a post on Facebook, the excited Nigeria’s Treasure noted that she has been passionate about pushing boundaries, challenging limits, and achieving the extraordinary.

“I’ve always been passionate about pushing boundaries, challenging limits, and achieving the extraordinary. And now, I want to make my mark in history by shattering some existing records and setting new ones!
“From heart-pounding physical feats to mind-boggling mental challenges, I’ll be diving headfirst into the world of record-breaking. Imagine witnessing jaw-dropping stunts, witnessing incredible perseverance, and being part of something truly unforgettable,” she noted.
The Nigerian lady, who will also be attempting to break the record for the ‘longest home kitchen cooking marathon (individual), revealed that she would use the opportunity to showcase African dishes in the 68 hours cook-a-thon.
“This dream will soon be a reality, together we can do it, Hilda broke one now let’s break another: the home cooking marathon. I am preparing and looking forward to it.
“I will be making traditional foods, ijangada, (dry okra) let’s showcase our food that has almost gone into extinction, the world need to appreciate our rich delicacies,” Treasure noted.
According to her, she is embarking on the journey to gain visibility and improve the lives of the less privileged in the society, in her own little way.
“I’ll be documenting my progress, sharing behind-the-scenes glimpses, and inviting you to be a part of this incredible adventure. Your support will mean the world to me and will give me the strength to go that extra mile, push through the challenges, and emerge victorious!
“So, whether you’re a friend, family member, or someone who simply loves witnessing incredible achievements, please join me in this record-breaking quest. Together, we can make history and inspire others to dream big and reach for the stars!,” the Nigerian chef concluded.
