The stage was set, the seats arranged, everything was all ready for an attempt at breaking the world record of having the most participants shaving at the same time.
The air in Kenyatta University was filled with excitement as students rushed to complete their CAT’s and head down to the Graduation Square.
All men received a blue Gillette tag as they entered. The activation stand where guys were treated to a game of footpool.
The setup was sensational with the Gillette colors blue and white making up for most of the decor. Many Gillette brand ambassadors looked confident and excited as they waited for the students to fill up the 3000 seats.
At exactly 12noon, Don the Black got on stage and begun hyping up the crowd. DJ Sneep also got on stage and got the students excited.
Students picked from town came from various universities, USIU, TUK, JKUAT, UON etc. This was really going to be record breaking.
At around 3 pm Shaffie Weru got on stage and explained how the shaving would happen. After that was the most anticipated moment of the show, Shaffie being shaved!
All students who were interested in shaving and being part of the record breaking event was ushered to the seating area. Once everyone was seated, the Guiness World record standards were correct, and selfies taken, the shaving begun.
The record that was previously approximately 2,300 was beaten at 3000 people!!
