Toney Solomon climbed 150 steps to reach at the top of a 250-ft tall radio tower while balancing a football on his head.

Internet is flooded with videos of people attempting to set world records. This ranges from devouring half a kilogram of cheese in under a minute to accomplishing remarkable feats like sprinting 100 meters in high heels. Notably, Guinness World Records frequently highlights these extraordinary accomplishments on its social media platforms. Their latest video features a Nigerian man who has broken a record by climbing to the top of a radio tower while skillfully balancing a football on his head, all without any external support.

Tonye Solomon, who hails from Bayelsa State, Nigeria, achieved this extraordinary feat by climbing 150 steps to reach a 250-ft (76-metre) radio mast with a football on his head. This achievement earned him the prestigious Guinness World Records title for “most steps climbed on a ladder while balancing a football on the head.”

When sharing his remarkable achievement, Tonye expressed his motivation for pursuing this record. He revealed that his primary aim was to challenge himself and, more importantly, to serve as an “inspiration for others to do great things.”

A video of Tonye attempting to make the record was shared by GWR on their X account (formerly Twitter). “New record: Most steps climbed on a ladder while balancing a football on the head – 150 by Tonye Solomon (Nigeria). Don’t look down,” the caption read. Check out the video here:

This video has amassed 1.5 million views. According to Guinness World Records, Tonye Solomon dedicated two months to intensive training, utilising every available moment of his free time to practice until he was confident of his success. During the actual record attempt, Tonye displayed self-control and completed the challenging climb in just 12.5 minutes.

Fish Jombo, a radio presenter who witnessed the record-breaking event along with a large crowd, said, “I was astonished because it’s never been done by anyone before.”

Upon conquering all 150 steps, Tonye jubilantly threw the football down and celebrated with an enthusiastic fist pump. He expressed his gratitude, saying, “It wasn’t easy. I thank the Nigerian Civil Defense Bayelsa State Command for allowing me use their facility for this.”

The Guinness World Records website also stated that Tonye is a member of the Chukwuebuka Freestyle Academy, overseen by Chukwuebuka Ezugha, which has nurtured numerous record-breaking talents, including Kid Eche, Vincent Okezie, Victor Richard Kipo, and Confidence Kipo.
