LIVE: Afua Asantewaa‘s Sing-a-thon attempt to break Guinness World Record gaining morale after 40hrs

Ghana’s Afua Asantewaa has kicked off her attempt to break the record for the longest individual singing marathon (Sing-A-Thon) at Akwaaba Village at the Airport in Accra.

Asantewaa is expected to break the longest singing marathon by an individual which lasted 102 hours. The record is held by Indian Sunil Waghmare, who earned the milestone after singing for 105 hours from March 3 to March 7, 2012.

In a nearly five-day event that started exactly at midnight from today, Sunday, December 24 to December 27, 2023, she began with OSIBISA’s ‘WOYAYA’ and followed with two gospel songs.

After a nonstop 4-hour performance, she took a 20-minute break to change her costume and then resumed. Miss Asantewaa will be singing only Ghanaian songs throughout her record-breaking attempt.

Asantewaa has been able to reach over 40hrs and has witnessed some renowned personalities and celebrities including the Vice President of Ghana, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, Nana Ama Brown, Cina Soul, OB Amponsah, Clemento Suarez, Kwaku Manu among others cheering her.

The event has attracted thousands of music lovers and well-wishers to Akwaaba Village in solidarity with their compatriots and to also be part of history-making.
