Guinness World Record: Davido drums support for Nigerian chess master, Tunde Onakoya

Afrobeats singer Davido on Thursday showed up at Times Square in New York to support Nigerian chess master, Tunde Onakoya, who is seeking to surpass the Guinness World Record for the longest chess marathon.

Onakoya commenced his mission to surpass the Guinness World Record for the longest chess marathon for 58 hours on Wednesday, April 17.

Davido, who recently sold out the iconic New York’s Madison Square Garden, graced the event to give moral support to his compatriot.

In videos making the rounds on social media, the singer and the elated chess master could be seen hugging and dancing.

Onakoya’s chess marathon is scheduled to end today, April 19.

Another Nigerian singer, Adekunle Gold had earlier supported the chess master when he visited the venue on Wednesday and made donations to assist in the live streaming of the event.

Onakoya has emerged triumphant in all encounters so far, including his match with New York’s National Chess Master, Shawn Martinez.
