Why DJ Arch Jnr's Guinness World Record flopped

DJ Arch Jnr. hopes to officially be the “youngest club DJ”.

Four-year-old South African DJ Arch Jnr was on track to officially being recognised as the youngest professional DJ in the world but his goal has once again been derailed.

The DJ's team announced to Saturday Star in September that they would be attempting to break the record for youngest club DJ at an hour-long gig. It was the DJ's second attempt, after he was unable to play for a full hour at an event last year.
And while the DJ managed to make the hour mark, the attempt was apparently still rejected by Guinness because it did not take place in a club.
"My idea was, because he was one of the resident DJs for McDonalds, that for the finals (of the DJ competition) we would get a stage and when the tournament was done he would attempt the record in front of everyone. He did that. He played for an hour and five minutes.
