Congratulations DJ OBI

After 229 hours and 58 minutes of straight DJing, DJ Obi has set a new World Record of the Longest DJ Set.
The current record of 200 hours was set by Norbert Selmaj aka Norberto Loco (Poland) in The Underground temple bar in Dublin, Ireland from 19 to 27 November 2014.

You would recall that DJ Obi set out on Wednesday, June 22nd, at 11.30pm, to smash the current 200-hour record with a 240-hour, ten-day set, which was to end at 11:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 2nd, 2016. However, due to medical advisement, DJ Obi has had to suspend his ten-day attempt at 1:28pm on Saturday, July 2nd.

With 229 hours and 58 minutes, DJ Obi has DJed longer than the current world record holder. His team is currently awaiting verification from Guinness World Records before they can make an official announcement.

We at have independantly been at the Sao Cafe everynight to observe and support his inspiring determination to succeed against all odds and for that we salute him!
