Finally!! Femi Kuti World Record for Longest Note on Saxophone

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 54-year-old musician broke the record, previously held by British composer Van Burchfield, yesterday night at the African shrine in Lagos.

Taking to this 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.

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