PHOTOWAKA AFRICA GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS

On Saturday 17th August, 2019 at Johnson Jakande Tinubu Park in Lagos, I joined a team of over 1,000 Photographers, both rookies (with phone cameras) and experts (with professional cameras), to break the Guinness World Record’s Largest Gathering of Photographers on a Photo Walk hosted by PhotoWaka Africa.

ABOUT PHOTOWAKA AFRICA

PhotoWaka Africa is a social enterprise focused on youth empowerment, creativity, job creation, and creating a sustainable value chain in the photography and creative space.

The initiative was founded by Eti-Inyene Godwin Akpan popularly known as Sir Inyene.

I first met Inyene in December 2017 when I went for the Keke Experience tour with The Dare Experience. I really loved the pictures he took with both his camera and phone. Plus he displayed a great personality. That’s how I hired him for my Social Media Week Lagos events in 2018 and 2019. He has also done other photography jobs for me. I must say he is an amazing photographer and has an amazing personality.

When I heard about his PhotoWaka Africa’s Guinness World Record quest, I had to show up and support my guy *smiles*

BREAKING THE PHOTOWAKA AFRICA GUINNESS WORLD RECORD

It was recorded that 1,118 participants attended the Photo Walk and gathering that day, thereby breaking the 1,000 required record. I feel so proud being part of this history.

Can you spot me in the picture above? *grins* (Hint: I’m standing at the middle left *shines teeth*)
