A Nigerian masseuse, Joyce Ijeoma, is attempting to set a Guinness World Record for the longest massage on different persons.

A South African, Alastair Galpin, recognised as the second Guinness World Records breaker of the 2000s (2000-2009), set the record in South Kalimantan, Indonesia, in November 2015.

Beginning 29 November 2015 at 12:14 p.m. and ending 30 November at 1:18 p.m., Galpin carried out a full-body massage on Nila Adha, having a 15-minute break every 8 hours.

The young masseuse went viral after a video of her announcement surfaced on Sunday. The video revealed her aim to attempt the massage-a-thon challenge for 72 hours. The event which began on Saturday, the 1st of July, and will end on Monday if her calculations go right.

“Please come through for me. Your support and physical presence would be very much appreciated. Come with your family, friends, and even your enemies.”
