Going Viral: The Burial Poster of a Nigerian Woman from Cross River Who Defied All Odds and Reached Age 130



 A Calabar Great Grandma who was reportedly born in 1890 and died at an incredible age of 130, has captured widespread attention. This revelation, as indicated on the burial poster, has spurred a significant amount of conversation online, both within Nigeria and globally, because of its rarity.

It is no small matter to live for longer than a century, let alone 130 years. In fact, such longevity is so exceptional that it nearly surpasses the current documented record for the longest-lived person. According to the Guinness World Records, this honor belongs to Jeanne Calment of France, who lived for 122 years and 164 days. 


A woman who lived for 130 years has died, and her burial arrangement surfaced and went viral.

The burial poster shared on Twitter showed that the woman was born in 1890 and died in 2020 in Akwa Ibom state.
