Rappers from around the globe set unusual Guinness World Record – after 'relay' which saw some wait an hour to perform10/09/2020
HIP-HOP fans from around the globe have set an unusual Guinness World Record.
A total of 51 people speaking in English, French, Thai, Urdu, Hindi and Bahasa Indonesian claimed the award for 'most people in an online rapping video relay'.
So many people participated in the video that some of the rappers who contributed had to wait for more than an hour to take their turn.
The song, broadcast live over the internet, celebrates the launch of the Infinix Hot 10 smartphone.
Contributors hailing from as far afield as Indonesia, Thailand, India, Pakistan, Kenya, Egypt and Nigeria took part as a stunt to show that people can still have fun – despite coronavirus lockdowns preventing them from physically being together.
Infinix has now released a video showcasing the stars and their skills.
The mammoth relay was kicked off by Egyptian rapper Kareem Rafat, with Chinese rapper Omar bringing the tune to a close.
In the middle, TikTok stars Lerry Khan and Hassan – who boast one-and-a-half million followers between them – took over.
Eric, who lives in the Philippines, was one of those to take part.
He said: “I felt honoured and happy with our achievement because the record is not only related to one brand, but all of us as a community.”
Rappers gathered online on September 30.
Their effort has now been ratified by Guinness World Records.
A spokesperson for Infinix added: "The Infinix Hot 10 is all about empowering users to stay connected, share experiences, and have fun.
“That's why challenging ourselves to break a Guinness World Records title, embrace global creativity and showcase the technology at our fingertips – and in our pockets – with a record-breaking rap relay is the perfect way to celebrate the launch of the Infinix Hot 10.”
