I went partially blind, cry-a-thon maker says as GWR rejects effort

The Nigerian man at the centre of the cry-a-thon attempt, Tembu Ebere, has described how he went partially blind for about 45 minutes, and also how he suffered from headaches and puffy eyes while his marathon crying lasted

This is even as the Guinness World Records says it “wouldn’t ever monitor” a record for the longest marathon crying, probably in response to the Nigerian content maker’s record-seeking efforts.

It may be recalled that in the aftermath of Chef Hilda Baci’s successful cooking marathon, Ebere had also embarked on the longest crying marathon.

Speaking with the BBC, Ebere described the difficulties he faced and the rigors associated with pulling off the stunt.

He said he had to take some time out to modify his approach and strategy, as constant wailing and moaning caused him excruciating headaches, puffy eyes and swollen face. “I had to re-strategize and reduce my wailing,” he confessed.

He also said the attempt almost cost him his eyesight as he went partially blind for about 45 minutes.
