Guinness World Record approves Ghanaian Journalist for sing-a-thon

Ghanaian journalist, Afua Asantewaa Aduonum has been approved by Guinness World Records to attempt the longest individual sing-a-thon by an individual.

Afua Asantewaa Aduonum, Chief Executive Officer of ASKOF Productions, is aiming to break the longest singing time for a duration ranging from 117 to 120 hours, exclusively singing songs from Ghana in celebration of highlife, hiplife, and gospel genres. Each song will be limited to a maximum of two minutes, and she can only repeat the same songs after a four-hour interval, in accordance with the regulations set by Guinness World Record.

As a women’s empowerment advocate, Afua Asantewaa hopes to inspire and motivate others through her singing marathon.

Afua Asantewaa is planning to break the current record for the singing marathon, which was established in 2012 by Indian Sunil Waghmare and stands at 105 hours.

She is seeking support from Ghanaians for the marathon, which is scheduled for this December 24-27.

Ghanaians on social media support the news, some doubt her ability to break the record, while others believe in her success with their backing.

It is worth noting that Afua Asantewaa, if successful with her attempt, would become the fifth Ghanaian to make it into the Guinness Book of World Records.

Afua Asantewaa has been behind numerous successful productions in Ghana, including the Ghana Outstanding Women’s Award, Pose for Africa, Miss Kidi, and Sports Arena, among many others.

Guinness World Records is a British reference book that documents human achievements and the extremes of nature. It was first published in 1955 and was previously known as the Guinness Book of Records until 1999.
