Nigeria’s DJ Obi has broken the Guinness World Record for the longest DJ set. His 240-hour marathon performance, which took place at Sao Café Lagos from June 22 to July 2, beat the previous world record of 200 hours.

Obi was allowed a 20-minute break every four hours or a one-hour break every 12 hours, according to The Guardian. He was also given daily medical checks and vitamins to help fight sleep deprivation.

Billboard reports: “the rules included caveats that at least one person must remain dancing at all times, and no song could be repeated within four hours time.”

Guinness is expected to make the record official within the next few weeks.
