These days, it seems like everybody and their housekeeper holds a Guinness World Record – it’s fascinating and random at the same time. And more than a few of these records border on ridiculous. For music freestyle, the longest freestyle rap by a team lasted 12 hours and 2 minutes and was achieved by KJ52 Freestyle Team (USA), in Tampa, Florida, USA, on January 12, 2014; while the longest individual freestyle rap record is held by Austin Antoine who freestyled for an unprecedented 16 hours, 31 minutes, and 21 seconds on May 4, 2013.
And as ‘Naija no dey carry last’, some Nigerian rappers are taking a shot at setting a world record by freestyling for 15 hours. The rappers including Vector, Yung6ix and others have said they are set to break the 13-hour world record for the longest freestyle rap by a team.
According to Vector, in an Instagram video:
“We are about to set a Guinness book of world record, we are working on it. At this point, we are about to break a world record with rap. We are going to put Nigeria on the map. Apart from myself, we have Yung6ix, Chinkoekun, Stage one and Jesse.”
Um…okay. Apart from the worryingly underwhelming list of rappers (and I use the word “rappers” very, very loosely), there are not that many words in the English language, and seeing as Nigerian rap is already repetitive, a 15-hour Nigerian rap freestyle does not sound enjoyable from or for anyone. But as Vector said, they want to put Nigeria on the map, and if there’s one thing that I’m sure of about this endeavour, we won’t be forgetting it in a hurry.
