Femi Kuti Breaks World Sax Record For Longest Single Note
Nigerian afrobeats legend, Femi Kuti was reported to have broken the World Record last week surpassing Kenny G’s record of 46 minutes for “the longest continuous note on a saxophone using the circular breathing method” as he played for 46mins 38secs.
However, the celebration was found out to be premature as one Van Burchfield from the USA had played for 47 mins.
Femi Kuti has however now broken that record to become the world record holder for “the longest continuous note on a saxophone using the circular breathing method”.
He announced the new record of 51 mins 35 secs on his Twitter page:
Although the Guinness World Record organization says it no longer recognizes the circular breathing method of blowing the saxophone and thus will not certify Femi achievement, it is still a feat worth celebrating.
