She had earlier revealed that she was interested in making Guinness World Record in a video that has since gone viral. In the 30-second video, Joyce revealed that she had done more than eighteen hours of massage as she prepared for her record-breaking streak. At the time of filing the report, Hilda Baci had fainted during an event in the Lekki area of Lagos State, she stopped the live coverage and was yet to go back to the venue. Having done a total of fifty hours, Ijeoma collapsed on Tuesday at 1 a.m.
