Meet Soul Yin, the Nigerian DJ Attempting to Break the Guinness World Record
Nigerian DJ and singer, Soul Yin has taken it on herself to break the Guinness World Record for the longest ever DJ set.
Soul Yin set out to break the Guinness World Record for the longest ever DJ set, which is currently held by another Nigerian, DJ Obi. She started her set on Monday, the 23rd of September 2021.
DJ Obi broke the same Guinness World Record back in 2016 when he completed a 24o-hour marathon in Lagos. He broke the previous record of 200 hours which was set by a Polish DJ, Norbert Selmaj in Dublin back in 2014.
According to the ruled for this particular record, any DJ attempting to break it is allowed a 5-minute break every hour and must have someone dancing at all times. The DJ must also not repeat the same song within 4 hours of playing it.
