DJ OBI PLAYS 84 HOUR DJ SET AND BREAKS WORLD RECORD
Nigerian DJ Obi decided to take it to the record books with a 240-hour non-stop DJ set surpassing the most recent record of 200-hours by DJ Norbert Selmaj of Dublin . In honor, DJ Obi dedicate his marathon set to his passing father. To Obi, “it became bigger than me”. It wasn’t just a record breaker anymore.
According to the BBC, he was allowed a five-minute break every hour, had to have someone dancing at all times, and could not repeat a song within four hours of playing it.
“I hadn’t slept for maybe 4 or 5 days, I woke up hallucinating, I wasn’t in control of my body… People kept using my dad as a reference point, because you know, I’d lost my dad – and you know, ‘he’s going to be disappointed if you stop, you have to keep pushing, he’s watching you, he’s looking.’ But that’s really what kept me going.” – DJ Obi
