Femi Kuti about Setting a New World Record

Legendary saxophonist, Femi Kuti, on Sunday came close to setting a new world record for the longest single note on a saxophone.

The Afrobeat star held a single note for 46 minutes 38 seconds during an event at the Africa Shrine in Lagos, South-West Nigeria.

Although he knocked off world number two, Kenny G, who held his note for 45 minutes 37 seconds, but he failed to break the current world record set by Vann Burchfield.

Burchfield set the record in 2000 when he sustained a note for 47 minutes 5.5 seconds.

Dignitaries present at the African Shrine during Femi’s performance was Senator Ben Murray-Bruce, the deputy high commissioners of Netherlands and The United Kingdom, among others.

The Afro beat legend is set to attempt the record breaking feat again in days to come at the same venue.
