Nigerian DJ Sets World Record for Longest Set at 240 Hours
Here’s a new item from the Department of Musical Insanity.
A guy from Nigeria has just set the world record for the longest DJ set. DJ Obi started on the decks at a café in Lagos on June 22 and he didn’t stop spinning for 240 hours. He finally stopped at 11:30 on July 2nd. This obliterated the old record of 200 hours, which was set by a polish guy in Dublin about two years ago.
Obi was given a five-minute break every hour and a one-hour break every 12 hours along with medical checkups and vitamin shots. Another stipulation was that someone had to be dancing for every single minute. He wasn’t allowed to play a song more than once every four hours. And no sleep allowed. That would have disqualified him.
Do NOT try this on your own. The poor guy slipped into hallucinations after about day four.
So well done, DJ Obi. I hope you’re getting some rest.
