Chess-in-Slums Founder, Tunde Onakoya, who recently surpassed the world record for the longest-ever chess marathon, clocking an impressive 60 hours, received a heartwarming welcome upon his return to Nigeria on Wednesday.

He was greeted with a heartwarming reception, complete with singing and dancing at the airport.

Onakoya broke the record of Norwegian players, Hallvard Haug Flatebø and Sjur Ferkingstad, who played for 56-hour, 9-minute in 2018.

The new record holder said he attempted to raise funds and awareness for providing educational opportunities to underprivileged children across Africa.
