The attempt is currently taking place at the Safe House, Adeola Hopewell Street, Eti-Osa, Lagos.

As part of the requirements, Lola has auctioned and sold some of the paintings.

The longest painting marathon is held by Roland Palmaerts, the Belgian-Canadian man who painted for 60 hours in 2013.

Odemewu joins the growing list of Nigerians who have attempted to set new world records since the beginning of 2023.

In June, Hilda Baci, a Nigerian chef, was certified for the longest cooking marathon by an individual. She achieved the feat in 93 hours and 11 minutes.
