A Nigerian comedian and content creator allegedly lost his sight for about 45 minutes after sobbing for hours in an attempt to cry for 100 hours and set a world record for the longest time crying continuously.

Tembu Daniel, who goes by ‘237_towncryer’ on Instagram, recently lived up to his nickname by attempting a world record, crying continuously for 100 hours. The young Nigerian began his cry-athon on July 9 but was forced to suspend his crying only 6 hours later, due to some unforeseen side effects. Apparently, forcing himself to cry for hours non-stop caused Daniel to lose his sight for about 45 minutes.

I had to re-strategize and reduce my wailing

the online entertainer told the BBC, adding that he didn’t want to let this speed bump stop him from achieving his goal. However, it’s unclear whether he actually completed the 100 hours of continuous crying, as the few clips of the attempt posted on his Instagram show the timer at only 2 hours and 9 minutes, and at 5  hours and 54 minutes, respectively.

Crying for 2 hours!! Sounds like something I wouldn’t do.
