Gone are those days when Guinness World Records were broken by those in entertainment or art, it is now the season for those in the world of literature. It’s not just in any part of literature but in publishing.
The “Longest credit on a book” is a world title awarded to any book with an ISBN and a credit section with 10,001 names of real people printed on it.
Chidi Nwaogu, a writer and publisher, is the newest gem in the pile to break the Guinness world record for the longest credit on a book. On May 1st Nwaogu took to his Linkedin account to inform the world about his application to break the Guinness world record for the longest credit on a book.
Publiseer will be publishing a book written by me, and this book will hold the world title for the “Longest credit on a book”. It’s a fresh record, and we simply need at least 10,001 games to break this record. If you’d like to be part of this record-breaking event, simply comment on this post “Count me in” and your name (as it appears on LinkedIn) along with at least 10,000 others who comment on this post, will be published on the book as the credits. Let’s do this together, LinkedIn!
4 days after his LinkedIn post,14,000 people had commented “Count me in”, giving Chidi the permission to print their names on his book titled “10 ways of finding the right co-founder”.
This feat led to an increase in his social following of 34,189 on LinkedIn and helped him the secure the position as the first person to break the Guinness World Record for the Longest Credit On a book. It has also added his name to the list of Nigerian Guinness World Record Breakers like Wizkid, DJ Obi, Debbie Odumewu, and Kafayat Shafau-Ameh
