DJ Obi Breaks The World Record For The Longest DJ Set

Posted at July 11th, 2016 | by Shivani Goel | in

Nigeria’s DJ Obi has officially broken the world record for the longest DJ set ever played. The record was previously set in 2014 by DJ Norbert Selmaj who played in Dublin for 200 hours. DJ Obi broke the record, by performing for 229 hours, for 10 consecutive days, at the Sao Café in Lagos. He was allowed 2 hour breaks each day to rest and was constantly monitored and fed. The exhausting feat still caused some serious complications. DJ Obi commented, “I woke up hallucinating after 4 or 5 days and had lost full control of my body…I used the loss my father as an inspiration, constantly thinking to myself that my Dad was watching me and would be disappointed if I failed.”

Check out a clip of the legendary set below, which ended with Drake‘s “One Dance”.
