The Guinness world record breaker for long dance individual, Odumewu Deborah Sunmisola a.k.a Pinki Debbie has described her mum as the ‘ginger’ or driving force behind her at a recent media chat.
The 23 year old record breaker who danced for 137hours said: “Dancing is my hobby, I do it at every opportunity I get.”
She also said “her mom loves dancing too. She encourages me when doing street dance competitions, school choreography and others.”
Pinki Debbie, the first born of four children, said she started dancing fully while she was in the university in 2011.
“I joined a dance group ‘Reflection’,” said Pinki Debbie who hails from Ogun State.
“I wasn’t a professional dancer as at then but I knew I could dance well.”
She also revealed how she started getting the attention from fans in 2013 when she started posting videos online before she became a professional dancer in 2016.
When she was asked how she felt joining other like Kalamandalam Hemaletha of India and Kaffy of Nigeria in the Guinness Book Records, Pinki Debbie said she was humbled and overwhelmed.
“It wasn’t easy while on it but I’m grateful and excited,” said the dancer who also thanked her sponsors such as Puma, Aquila Records and IBD Impex Ltd while revealing her future plans.
“There are people who are even better than myself but they don’t believe in themselves,” she said.“I want to start a dance school, consulting firm in terms of promotion via social media platforms.”
She also advised up and coming dancers to believe in God and themselves and to be humble, focused and hardworking.
