The world record currently stands at a 5-day dance marathon, but Debbie has surpassed that.
She has received support from her family, friends and fans, who have all trooped to the mall to cheer, watch and dance with her.
Kaffy, Chuey Chu, among others, also showed up to support the young dancer.
Debbie, who is a graduate of Policy and Strategic Studies from Covenant University, started honing her dance skills at the age of 6. She draws her inspiration from her mother whose support for her work has been unwavering.
Debbie is an achiever and has demonstrated this time after time as evident in her impressive laurel winning streak of 4 years. She continually pushes boundaries and was just recently the 2nd runner-up in the Etisalat break free 24hr dance challenge as well as the last female dancer standing.
