NEWS IN: Afua Asantewaa’s sing-a-thon Declared unsuccessful – Guinness World Record Explains

Guinness World Records has officially declared that Afua Asantewaa’s attempt to establish the record for the longest individual singing marathon was not successful.

In a tweet on Friday, February 23, 2024, the official response read: “Unfortunately Afua’s Guinness World Records attempt for the longest singing marathon was not successful, but we hope that she will make another attempt soon. We’ve seen how inspirational it has been for her fans. The evidence check had already begun before Afua requested priority service, so we refunded her payment earlier this month. We wish Afua the best of luck with any future record attempts.”

The question fans are asking is, if her money was refunded, why did she not come out to declare the possibility of a disqualification?

Asantewa captivated the whole nation with her attempt at getting the longest sing-a-thon late last year. The event at the Akwaaba Village truly brought Ghaianas together with visits from the top hierarchy of politics to A-List showbiz personalities.

Even though She tried her best, a few technicalities regarding her breaks in singing and pauses could not earn her the top spot. The record holder, Sunil Waghmare from India is still at the top position for his 105 hours which took place in Nagpur, India, from March 3 to March 7, 2012.

Better Luck next time.
