Celebrating Afro Jazz musician Femi Kuti

Afro jazz musician Femi Kuti, has broken the World record for the longest single note held on a saxophone at the New Africa Shrine. He managed to break the record on Sunday 7 May 2017. The record breaking performance was witnessed by a large audience that included Ben Murray-Bruce, the deputy high commissioners of Netherlands and The United Kingdom as well his sister Yeni Anikulapo-Kuti, who shared her brother breaking Kenny G’s record on her Instagram page @yenikuti.

Kenny G has held the record for the longest single note on a saxophone since 1997. The record stood at 45mins 37 seconds before Femi came along and decided he can add a few seconds to the record by holding a single note for 46mins 38seconds.

Femi Kuti started playing the sax when he was 15 and joined his father’s band “The Egypt 80.” He later went on to form his own band called  “Positive Force’’. He is a four-time grammy nominee and is skilled in other instruments including the trumper and the piano

*Femi Kuti is waiting for official recognition by the Guinness World Record.
