Tembu Ebere, a Nigerian man who sought to break the Guinness World Record by crying for 100 hours, has gone blind.
Tembu Ebere lost some vision while attempting to bawl ceaselessly for a week in one of the many Guinness World Records attempts sweeping the African continent.
According to BBC reports, the man developed severe headaches, puffy eyes, and a swollen face as a result of his continual crying before turning temporarily blind for 45 minutes.
“I had to re-strategize and reduce my wailing,” he said.
He was determined to complete his tear-jerker — even though he has not applied to Guinness World Record so it would not count.
He was one of many Nigerians seeking to set world records since May when a 26-year-old chef named Hilda Baci was officially logged at cooking for 93 hours and 11 minutes at a Lagos restaurant.
