Nigeria was agog with the news that he broke the world record for the longest continuous note on a saxophone. Turns out he only broke Kenny G’s record. But Femi Kuti was not perturbed.

The record for the longest continuous note on a saxophone is held by Vann Burchfield. He set the record in Alabama, USA in 2000. The record stood at 47 minutes 5.5 seconds.

He broke the record while performing at the new African shrine in Lagos.

Can’t believe he actually did it!
Congratulations, Femi Kuti!
