DrumPope wants to top that and is gunning for 1 100 releases. He joins the likes of award-winning artists Black Coffee, who in 2010 attained the Guinness World Record for longest-ever DJ set when he played for 60 hours nonstop, DJ PH, and Shimza, who played a world-first, 72-hour DJ set.This, for me, shows how resilient and dedicated we are as South African artists,” DrumPope told ZiMoja. He has currently released 30% of this ambitious goal, which marks a significant milestone. “I have not just been making anything, but have thus far made songs that I love and am sure other people will love too,” he said.

As per Guinness World Record regulations, this has to be done in a public space where he can be monitored. “This is why I have teamed up with AMPD Studios in Newtown Junction Mall and with MTN Callertunez as my official release platform,” he added.
