Artiste Namewee hopes to make it into the Guinness Book of World Records by having the highest number of people simultaneously dance to his latest music video Makudona­rudo, reported Sinchew Daily.

The song is a collaboration between Namewee and Japan's COOL Japan TV.


The report stated that this was Japan’s first music production which combined foreign music with traditional Japanese festival music.

In the music video, Namewee performs with Japanese actress Meu Ninomiya, with one of the scenes depicting the Sensoji Temple in Asakusa, Tokyo.

In a post on his official Facebook page, Namewee explained that the dance was a traditional one in Japan with people dancing in circles.

He said the dance was called wa, which signifies the Japanese words for "peace" and "harmony".

"The idea of the dance is for all to get hand in hand. I hope everyone across the world, regardless of country, colour, culture or language, can join hands to take part in this dance," Namewee wrote.

The music video has amassed 5.9 million views on YouTube since it was uploaded on Nov 19.
