Femi Kuti smashes world record for longest note on wind instrument

Yusuf Busari

54- year-old Afrobeat legend, Femi Kuti has finally broken the WORLD record for the longest continuous note held on a saxophone, using the circular breathing method.

The Afrobeat maestro broke the record previously held by British composer Van Burchfield, yesterday night at the African shrine in Lagos.

Taking to his Twitter, the Bang Bang singer shared the new world record he set: 51 mins 38 seconds, which topples Burchfield’s record of 47 mins.

Done. Proven.” he wrote on his page.

It can be recalled that Femi Kuti was celebrated last week for breaking the world record after his sister, Yeni shared the news on her Instagram. It was later discovered that Femi had actually broken Kenny G’s record, not the world record.

Now, we await Guinness World Records to officially recognise Femi’s great feat.

Congratulations to him.
