Grammy-Nominee, Femi Kuti has broken the world record for the longest single note held on a saxophone at the New Africa Shrine.

With this record, Kuti has surpassed the famous American saxophonist, Kenny G's 1997 record.

He attained the feat on Sunday at the New Africa Shrine as shared by his sister Yeni Anikulapo-Kuti on her Instagram page @yenikuti.

“This evening 7th May at the New Africa Shrine, Femi Kuti broke the world record for the longest single note on a saxophone note set in 1997 by Kenny G.
“The record stood at 45 mins 37 seconds….Femi did 46 mins 38 seconds!! Give it up, we have a world champ.

“This was witnessed by a large audience that included Sen. Ben Murray-Bruce, the deputy high commissioners of Netherlands and the United Kingdom.”
The record was previously first set in December 1997 by legendary saxophonist Kenny G when he held an E-Flat note for over 45 minutes.
