Chiddy Bang’s Chidera ‘Chiddy’ Anamege will attempt to break the Guinness world record for the longest freestyle rap to open MTV’s new digital music awards, the OMAs, on 28 Apr. The record has been held by rapper M-Eighty since December 2009 and currently stands at nine hours, fifteen minutes and fifteen seconds.

Chiddy will begin rapping as the awards start on 28 Apr, and will presumably have to miss the whole ceremony, so you can see why he agreed to do it. He told MTV News: “I’ve been freestyling since I was fourteen years old, and this is definitely me putting myself to the test. I really think I can break the record, but, regardless, this is going to be a dope moment. I am ready to just go and go!”
