I Don’t Care About World Record, I Just Needed to Prove Critics Wrong – Femi Kuti Opens Up

The laudable feat saw him oust the longest note on the saxophone.

Recall that Femi had earlier said he would beat his last record of 46 minutes on the saxophone.

Speaking in an recent interview, he said his motivation isn’t to break the Guinness Records but to prove critics wrong.

In his words: “They said I cannot reach Kenny G’s mark, and when I reached it, some people said it was fake, saying that there’s another person who reached 50 minutes. So I smashed everything, so that I can have peace of mind. I have proven my point and I can rest, did I call Guinness Book of Records?

“I have only made my point, which was to show naysayers that it can be done. I’m not saying that I don’t care about my last performance being recognized by the Guinness Book of Records, but if they don’t recognize it, will I stress myself? People did not believe it the last time, because people used their phones to record. But this time, there was a proper video footage, as the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) sent their people to record it so that the world can see it, especially people who were full of doubts”.
