Tonye Solomon of Nigeria achieves a new height record while carrying a ball on his head while climbing a mast.


Tonye Solomon, a Nigerian, reached the top of a radio mast that was 250 feet (76 metres) tall by climbing 150 steps with a football balanced on his head.

GWR announced yesterday that Solomon had broken the record in Bayelsa State in August.


According to a GWR tweet, “Tonye Solomon (Nigeria) has set a new record for most steps climbed on a ladder while balancing a football on the head, with 150.” X was formerly known as Twitter.


GWR claimed that some people questioned Solomon’s story after he claimed to have run 60 kilometres (37 miles) from Amassoma to Yenagoa while carrying a football on his head.


Tonye was so motivated that he attempted to break a Guinness World Record by ascending a ladder 150 steps while carrying a football on his head, and he succeeded!


According to witnesses, Tonye didn’t seem to be phased by the challenge of the record-setting ascent, completing it in a mere 12.5 minutes. After he reached the top of the 150 steps, he threw the ball to the ground and pumped his fist in triumph.


Many of Tonye Solomon’s fellow countrymen in Bayelsa State, Nigeria, were sceptical of his story after he claimed to have walked 60 kilometres (37 miles) with a football on his head from Amassoma to Yenagoa.


Tonye wanted to show them that he could do more than they gave him credit for, so he climbed a ladder while balancing a football on his head and set a Guinness World Records title.


“He successfully achieved the dizzying feat last month by climbing 150 steps to the top of a 250-foot (76-metre) tall radio mast while expertly keeping control of the ball atop his head,” the Records said.


In response, Solomon stated that he sought to break the record so as to “inspire others to do great things” and to “challenge himself.”


He supposedly spent two months training for it, devoting every spare moment to drills until he was sure he wouldn’t fail, and on the day of the record attempt, he seemed unfazed by the challenging terrain, setting a new time of 12 minutes and 30 seconds.


Saying, “It wasn’t easy,” he meant it. For the use of their facility, I am extremely grateful to the Nigerian Civil Defence Bayelsa State Command.


Solomon is a student at Chukwuebuka Ezugha’s Freestyle Academy. The likes of Kid Eche, Vincent Okezie, Victor Richard Kipo, and Confidence Kipo were all educated at this academy and went on to have extraordinary careers.
