DJ OBI has finally fulfilled his dream of putting Nigeria on the
world map by breaking the world record for the longest DJ set. DJ Obi,
a foremost DJ in Nigeria has cleared off the previous record of 200
hours on a set, so far he has been performing for over 240 hours in a
club in Lekki phase one.
The current record for the longest set ever performed by a DJ
was created in November 2014 in Dublin in Ireland. And that record set
spanned 200 hours. But days ago DJ Obi announced his intentions to
clear the record. Currently, he has gone 8 days at a stretch
performing and pounding out the beats without any break longer than
one hour.
But DJ Obi has no plans to stop yet. He has set a personal target
for himself, to go ten days on the set, and right now he's on 8+ days.
Friends and well wishers have also been there for Obi since his day
one on the quest.
So many Nigerian artistes have turned out in their numbers to
applaud the aspiring DJ including: Tiwa Savage, DJ Spinall, Praiz,M.I,
Reekado Banks,DJ Jimmy Yatt, Ycee, Timaya, Olamide,Lynxxx and many
more including members of YBNL record label.
But the going hasn't been all that smooth, as DJ as DJ has not
had sufficient sleep for more than a week. And there have been reports
of hallucinations and temporary loss of consciousness. He has been on
a heavy dose of vitamins, to supplement the lack of sleep. He has also
been on a regulated diet. And gets regular feet massage.
By rule the DJ is allowed to take some break of an hour after 12
hours on the beats or 20 minutes after four hours of performance. DJ
Obi has been mixing mostly club house jamz from different countries
and Jazz too enough to keep the crowd wild.
