A student at Federal University, Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE), Olaniyi Israel Adewale achieves a new individual world record by completing a 200-hour drumming marathon.

“Special thanks to @mlpercussions For sponsoring this official attempt, sent me cash and other materials to energize my interest on this new achievement, thanks to you sir, God will continue to enrich and bless you beyond measures ijn.
