Femi Kuti sets new World Record for longest single note held on a saxophone

Femi Kuti has beaten Kenny G to a long single note held on a saxophone.

The son of the late Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti beats the record set in 1997 by Kenny G which stood at 45mins 37 seconds; Femi, at the  New Afrika Shrine on Sunday May 7, 2017 did 46mins 38seconds.

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

Kenny G back in 1997 set the record when he held an E-flat for that time length, using a technique termed Circular breathing.
