Oratile Hlongwane is aka DJ Arch Junior is looking to become the youngest club DJ on the decks, as he will attempt to entertain the crowd for 1 hour and needs to at least spin 25 songs.
Canada' 6-year-old Brandon Duke holds the current Guinness World Record for youngest DJ.
Arch Junior attempted to break Brandon's record last year, but unfortunately couldn't play for an hour...but it's understandable since he was only 3 years old, but now it is his second chance to do so.
In an interview with Saturday Star, Arch Junior's father, Glen Hlongwane told the paper that at that time (as a 3 year old), it was impossible for Arch Junior to play that long (1 hour) and that he could do 15-20 minute, then his concentration would go.
"When I drive him to creche, I tell him the big day is coming , and you will have to play an hour set so you can officially be the world's youngest DJ. Then he says "really" with a smile on his face. Then I tell him you will have to play about 20 to 25 songs, and he says, 'yoh! that's a lot', and I do believe in him, I always did". said Glen
Glen further stated that as a parent he would be extremely happy if his son made it into the record books.
Well anything is possible in this world, even for the young DJ. We certainly hope he'll break the record on Saturday.
