4 Guinness World Records Holder
Adetunwase Adenle, a teacher, artist and marketing consultant, is the only Nigerian citizen who has achieved the unique feat of having four Guinness World Records, and they all have to do with his work with children. His first record: during the Nigeria at 50 celebrations in 2010, he brought 350 Nigerian children together to create the biggest painting by the largest number of people. It was as big as a football field, measured about 63.5m (208 ft 3.99 in) x 49.3 m (161 ft 8.94 in) and was the map of Nigeria.
His second world record was done in commemoration of 2011 World Literacy Day when he organized the highest amount of children reading together in a particular place and at the same time in his bid to encourage reading habits among Nigerian students. It was done with a record 4,222 children and was achieved with the support of the then Deputy Governor of Lagos state, Mrs Adejoke Adefulire Orelope.
His third Guinness World Record was when he brought together the highest number of children washing their hands at the same time. This was to emphasize the importance of cleanliness. It was done in partnership with Unilever’s lifebuoy soap and had 37,809 children. His fourth record was part of the celebrations for Lagos at 50, where he set a new record by creating the biggest post office stamp in the world.
He holds an NCE in Fine & Applied Arts Education from the Federal College of Education, Akoka and is the CEO of Ecole de Dessin which specialises in educational art events, experiential marketing creative digital solutions, art workshops and exhibitions for African children. The platform also provides branding, marketing, and strategy services for companies to help them unleash the maximum market potentials that exists.
