Nigeria in Guinness Book of World Records

It’s now official that Akwa Ibom state broke the world record for organizing the largest collection of choral singers. The 9300 strong choir that performed in Uyo during the last yuletide season were drawn from the 31 local government of the state with each local government contributing 310 choristers each. The former record was set by a group of 7514 carol singers at Bob Jones University, South Carolina, USA.
Other references to Nigeria include the Dafionne Family as the family with the highest number of accountants and also winners chapel's faith tabernacle as the world largest church building.

  1. I wonder if they set out to become the largest collection of choral singers.
