Sultan Kosen, the man who holds the Guinness Book of World Records for the tallest living male, met Minister Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture, at the circus grounds in the center of Victoria just days before the official opening of the Magic Circus of Samoa in Seychelles. Sultan Kosen is part of this year's circus delegation and will be in Seychelles until the third week of March. Seychellois and residents will be able to see this unbelievable “giant” as he is set to be present for the circus performances in Victoria. This is only the second time a fully-fledged circus has landed in Seychelles. The Magic Circus of Samoa first came to Seychelles some three years ago.

“Sultan Kosen is unbelievably tall. As we spoke, he was seated, but as he stood up for a photo opportunity, his height is unbelievable and will impress everyone who meets him,” said Minister St.Ange, who was today meeting Bruno Loyale, the President and CEO of the Magic Circus of Samoa, to discuss the possibility of also getting the circus delegation to the island of Praslin.

“We continue to try to get as many Seychellois to see the circus, and we are really hoping to get a performance on Praslin and even maybe on La Digue. We have a lot of logistics to overcome but the good thing is that Bruno Loyale is keen to hear our plea to get Praslin and La Digue to also enjoy the circus as it is once again in Seychelles," said Minister St.Ange
