Ozuna received his certificates and a copy of GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS 2020 during an official ceremony in his home country of Puerto Rico.
Ralph Hannah, Official Adjudicator of Guinness World Records said: “More and more Latinos, especially Puerto Ricans are headlining the lists of world records. The passion and enthusiasm that characterizes these stars have seen them reach the top of our rankings. Today Guinness World Records has the pleasure of officially honoring these great talents as deserving of a world-class record title.”
“I feel honored to receive these [Guinness World Records] titles, which validates how hard we’ve been working for the past years. I dedicate this, first of all, to God, and to my fans from around the world, who have been there supporting me since the beginning of my career. I am thankful to Guinness World Records for this important recognition,” added Ozuna.
