Nigerian football freestyle prodigy from Delta State, Amazing Kid Eche, aka Eche Chinonso, has smashed a world record at the age of 12.
For a while now, its been clear that the young lad would be a top talent, and has been practicing since the age of five.
At the age of eight, Amazing Kid Eche began putting in more time to develop and perfect his freestyling skills after being inspired by videos of world famous footballers.
In order to reach a record breaking standard, Eche finds time to practice every single morning before school, and he set his sights on attempting the Guinness World Records title for the most consecutive football (soccer) touches in one minute while balancing a football on the head to prove to other young Nigerians that anything is possible through self-belief and dedication.
Amazing Kid Eche achieved the title on the 14th November 2019, with an impressive 111 touches; receiving recognition from FIFA and earning himself a spot in the Guinness World Records book.
That is no mean feat for a young lad.

Earning his place on the pages of Guinness World Records 2021 has made Eche the “happiest person in the world” and he hopes it will make his family and other Nigerians proud. Speaking on the achievement, he said;
“It has inspired me to do more and never give up”
Eche’s favourite trick to perform still involves juggling a ball while balancing another one on his head, in the knowledge that he still remains the very best in the world at doing so.
