Kissing marathon in ekiti


We are just as shocked as you may be right now.

The Ekiti State government has canceled the planned three-day kissing marathon to break the Guinness World Records in the state.

A group known as Sugartee announced their attempt of the longest world kissing marathon in a popular amusement park in the state capital on July 7.

Heavy Sanction

However, the state government through a letter dated July 3, 2023, from the Ministry of Arts and Culture addressed to the Ekiti State Hoteliers Association.


The ministry announced the ban on the scheduled competition said any facility that hosted the event would be severely sanctioned.

The letter signed by the Director of Tourism Adebanji Adelusi on behalf of the permanent secretary of the ministry.

Dele Ogunsemoyin noted that the planned event tagged ‘Kiss-a-thon ‘ was capable of denigrating the image of the state.

Unhealthy And Immoral

“Kiss-a-thon” as an event is not only absurd, unhealthy, immoral and capable of denigrating the image of the state.


“It is a programme that runs counter to the values of the people of the state and therefore capable of plunging our Youths morally backwards.
