Ghanaian Afua Asantewaa Set To Break Guinness World Record


Ghana’s Afua Asantewaa Aduonum is on a journey to break a world record for the longest individual singing marathon.

In her attempt to break the Guinness world record by Sunil Waghmare, an Indian who sang for 105 hours in March 2012, Afua has been singing Ghanaian songs back-to-back at the Akwaaba village.

Afua’s journey which commenced at midnight on December 24 is expected to end on December 27, which means she will be singing non-stop for 4 days 9 hours.

The mother of 2 has been performing Ghanaian songs back to back at the Akwaaba village where a number of Ghanaians including A-list musicians and politicians have gathered to support her.

Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia was also there to throw in his support.

Afua’s attempt comes a few days after some Ghanaian musicians called for promoting Ghanaian songs during the Yuletide.

The event-leading trends across the social media space in Ghana appear to have made the 2023 Christmas in Ghana a memorable experience.

Many social media users and patrons of the mini-event have all commended Afua for her effort.
