Tunde Onakoya, who broke the Guinness World Record, is greeted with heroism at the airport.

Tunde Onakoya, a chess specialist from Nigeria, is greeted with great fanfare at the airport after shattering the previous Guinness World Record for the longest chess marathon.

A cultural ensemble was seen entertaining Tunde upon his arrival at the international airport in Lagos state, according to a viral video.
