“I am now a mechanic” – 16-year-old Nigerian boy with 5 awards from Guinness World Records shares story

Vincent Okezie, a 16-year-old Nigerian teenager who holds five Guinness World Records certifications, works as a mechanic in the state of Abia.

Following Hilda Baci’s world-record-breaking cooking marathon at Amore Gardens in Lagos, Vincent’s tale started making the rounds on social media.

Despite breaking the world record five times, Vincent’s life has not improved.

The photos of Vincent was shared on Facebook by a popular Nigerian content creator, Lucky Udu.

Lucky Udu revealed that he confirmed from Vincent’s coach and manager, Chukwuebuka Ezugha to know if he was indeed a world record breaker before posting online.

According to him, Vincent is currently a Mechanic apprentice in Abia.

Here are the five records broken by Vincent:

  • Most consecutive backward handsprings with a football between the legs.
  • Most consecutive passes of a football between the head and soles while balancing on the back of a person (129 passes).
  • Most over and under pass of a football (soccer ball) with feet touching in one minute (team of two).
