Nigerian Woman Breaks World Record for Longest Interview Marathon

A Nigerian female social media entrepreneur, Clara Chizoba Kronborg, has broken the world record for the longest interviewing marathon with a time of 55 hours 24 seconds.

Clara’s record attempt took place on a docked yacht in the Spanish city of Marbella, where she currently resides.

She beat the previous record was 37 hours 44 minutes set by Rob Oliver (USA) in 2022.

During the record attempt, Clara, who hosts a talk show on YouTube, interviewed 90 people of various nationalities and occupations, including politicians, business owners, content creators, actors, real estate agents and many others, with the conversations centred around how each guest achieved success in their respective fields.

“This record attempt was about bringing together diverse individuals, sharing their inspiring narratives, and forging meaningful connections on a global scale. I am committed to amplifying voices, particularly those of hardworking women, and using their stories to inspire others facing similar challenges,” Clara told Guiness World Records.

According to the report, she grew up in relative poverty in Onitsha, Nigeria, which fuelled her fascination with the concept of success.

As required per longest marathon attempts, the Nigerian took five minutes of rest time after each hour of interviewing; only during these breaks was she permitted to nap, change her clothes, or go to the bathroom. She also wore adult diapers throughout her record attempt, to compensate for the large volume of water she drank during the period.

She added, “Recalling everything I went through physically, mentally, financially, emotionally – it feels so unreal. I am extremely proud of this accomplishment because I know lives have been touched and changed. This achievement is dedicated to all those who dare to dream and persist, regardless of the challenges they face.”
