DJ Obi still running for the Guinness World Record after nervous breakdown


DJ Obi, on Monday, took to Instagram to talk about his near nervous break experience as he has set out to beat the Guinness Book of Records feat for the longest DJ set which spans 200 hours and was set on November 19, 2014 in Ireland.

He was on his fifth day out of the 10 days set and has to go for 240 hours to beat the old record. But alas, DJ Obi is feeling the pressure.

He began the quest at Sao Café, Lekki in Lagos around 10pm on Wednesday, and he is scheduled to continue DJing till 10pm on the first of July. He is only allowed 20 minutes break every four hours.

A lot of celebs and socialites have come to support him. Don Jazzy, Tiwa Savage, MI, DJ Jimmy Jatt, Toke Makinwa, Sasha P, Olamide, Phyno, Adekunle Gold, Burna Boy, Yung 6ix, Ycee, Olu Maintain,  DJ Eni Money, DJ Caise and  Ebuka Obi-Uchendu

“Today was def not the best of days,” DJ Obi shared on Instagram.

“For the first time in my life I woke up hallucinating, couldn’t recognize my own people. Felt very strange. Was extremely cranky. I forgot my location. Sao cafe looked like my uncle’s house in Bode Thomas ( no joke) from my childhood days. I actually almost gave up today. But thanks to God and my people for being there and standing strong and not taking to heart my actions and stubbornness cause it wasn’t me. The devil is a liar!!!! We are all going to cheer loudly on the 10th day.”
