The spotlight is on Nigeria, and almost everything from the country is newsworthy. In the spirit of breaking records, Nigerian rap star Erhiga Agarivbie, popularly known as Erigga, has considered going on a smoking marathon to set a Guinness World Record.
He considered smoking for two weeks straight on Monday on his Twitter account in an effort to enter his name into the Guinness Book of World Records. Erigga expressed his “playful desperation” to be acknowledged by the international body as a record breaker.
This comes as his fellow countrywoman, chef Hilda Baci, waits for confirmation from Guinness World Records that she has surpassed the record for the longest cooking hours. She accomplished the milestone after working for 100 hours straight in the kitchen, breaking the previous record of 87 hours and 45 minutes established by Indian chef Lata Tondon in 2019.
In a lighthearted conversation with his followers, the Hip Hop musician requested suggestions from them on how to break the Guinness World Record. Later, he pondered whether it was possible to smoke continuously for two weeks without eating to break the record for the longest smoking period.
“Watin persin wan do when go break record? Abi make I smoke for 2weeks straight without food.”

Erigga’s latest body of work, “Lost Boy,” has been doing considerably well in streams on major streaming platforms, and the Rapper has continued to evolve his style of music while striking a balance between what he preaches and how he preaches it.
