Thanks to the love and support of countless individuals, the news that DJ Obi, one of Nigeria’s most notable DJ’s, was making an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for Longest Marathon Club DJing spread like wildfire. DJ Obi set out to smash the current 200-hour record with a 240-hour, ten-day set beginning at 11:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 22nd and ending at 11:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 2nd, 2016.
After 229 hours and 58 minutes of straight DJing, DJ Obi’s ten-day attempt came to a close, due to medical advisement, at 1:28pm on Saturday, July 2nd.
DJ Obi has been overjoyed by the love, support, encouragement and prayers he has received in the past ten days. Supporters have showed up by the thousands, and messages have poured in from every corner of the world. It has been a 24hour party at Sao Café Lagos since last Wednesday! If there is one word we are sure he would want you to leave you with it is, “grateful”. The fact that Obi made it to this point is proof that anything is possible when one puts their mind to it. He has you to thank for inspiring him to push this far. Nearly 230 hours later and a goal has been achieved!
