In 1955, Chief Obafemi Awolowo launched the Free education Scheme, amongst many other achievements that colour his legacy. This campaign produced countless testimonies our generation is quite unaware of, amongst them is Pastor Tunde Bakare of The Citadel Global Community Church, who testified at the thanksgiving of Late Chief (Mrs) HID Awolowo that he would have become a carpenter.
Ex- Big Brother Naija Star and grandson to Chief Obafemi Awolowo, Seyi Awolowo, continues the free education legacy as he partners with Slum Art Foundation who teach children in slums to express through as they produce these artworks for sale, to provide digital education for children in Slum.
This year Adetunwase Adenle, co-founder of the Slum Art Foundation seeks to set his fifth Guinness Wold Record for the Largest Paint Swatch and Art Exhibition as Nigeria celebrates 60 years of Independence.
Adetunwase Adenle presently holds the record for the biggest painting that has been painted by the largest number of people. Which was accomplished at Nigeria’s celebration of 50 years of independence with the aim of teaching less privileged kids how to paint and draw.
Here are the RECORDS:
– First Guinness World Record is said to be as big as a football field. It is a painting that has the highest number of recreations in the world.
– Second Guinness World Record is for the highest number of children who read together at the same time to encourage other children to read books.
– Third Guinness World Record is for the highest number of children to wash their hands together at the same time to promote personal hygiene.
– Finally, he set the record for creating the biggest post office stamp which was used to celebrate Lagos State at 50.
Currently , this four-time Guinness World record holder lives in Lagos, Nigeria. Come October 1st 2020, he, alongside Seyi Awolowo and members of the Slum art Foundation will attempt to set a 5th record so as to provide digital education for children in Ijora Badia Slum and also make Nigeria proud!
