South Africa's very own DJ Arch Jnr, real name Oratilwe AJ Hlongwane, has made it to the Guinness World Records as the youngest club DJ in the world, according to TimesLive.

The five-year-old's father, Glen Hlongwane, said the family received a letter informing them of the news on Wednesday and his name was uploaded onto the website.
"To be the youngest DJ in the world is a big deal. It's a great thing for South Africa and for black people. I'm incredibly proud of him and I think the fact that he managed to concentrate for an hour to give an impressive DJ gig is truly amazing," he said.
"I was so excited and so was Oratilwe when I told him. He was very excited, although I don't think he actually understands how big a deal this is. I asked him what I should get him to celebrate."
It was the third attempt by DJ Arch Jnr to make it into the Guinness World Records after two previous unsuccessful attempts. He had previously failed because he could not play for the full hour and because he played at a stadium and not a club.
The previous record holder was Japan's six-year-old Itsuki Morita.Suggest a correction
