October 10 (THEWILL) – Popular disc jockey and singer Oyin Asu-Johnson broke the world record for longest DJ set by running his set and playing music nonstop for 243 hours and 30 minutes minutes.
The female disc jockey started playing on September 20, 2021 and quit on October 1, 2021, 11 days after taking the challenge. The event took place at Grill by Yanna, in Ikoyi, Lagos. The session was broadcast live on her social media space for a few days before it broke the record set by Federal University of Technology undergraduate Akure Agboola Venmak, also known as Dj Venum, in 2018. Earlier in 2016, Dj Olu broke the world record after playing for 229 hours non-stop at the Sao Café in Lagos.
Speaking of her achievement, the elated DJ expressed her deep gratitude to the people who cheered her on on her journey to stardom. She especially appreciated the duo of Tiwa Savage and Niniola for their support and encouragement in their quest to break the world record. She said breaking the world record meant a lot to her as it was the best way to show that Nigerian DJs were a force to be reckoned with around the world. The talented DJ was mentored by famous disc jockey Jimmy Jatt.
