A Tanzanian DJ has wowed netizens after sharing a video in which he was performing atop Africa’s highest mountain, Mt Kilimanjaro.
DJ Joozey, given name Joseph Simon, said he played a 15-minute set 5,895 metres above sea level in a tweet posted on Sunday.
“I did it!! I played on Mt Kilimanjaro the highest free standing mountain in world. 5,895 metres (19,341 ft) above sea level and 4,900 metres (16,100 ft) above its plateau base. Breaking the World Record I am the first man to ever play a 15min DJ set. GOD IS GOOD!” the DJ captioned the video clip of him on Kilimanjaro with his set-up.
Joozey is one of Tanzania’s rising stars. According to the local publication Tangaza Magazine, the 27-year-old has been in the showbiz industry for just around five years.
Yet last year, the DJ was one of the few selected Africans to be featured in American rapper DJ Khaled’s album campaign for his ‘God Did’ album.
