Afua Asantewaa Gears Up for Another Guinness World Record Attempt

Afua Asantewaa gained recognition last Christmas when she attempted to break the Guinness World Record for the longest singing marathon

Ghanaian media personality, Afua Asantewaa Aduonum, who became popular after attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the longest singing marathon by an individual last year, has expressed her intention to try again.

Speaking in an interview on GHONE TV, Afua Asantewaa stated that despite her unsuccessful attempt, she does not feel discouraged and has been considering attempting the feat again.

“I’ve been thinking about it a lot and I believe that the record attempt I embarked on is similar to the Black Stars participating in a World Cup or a presidential candidate attempting for the presidency,” she said.

“I have never in my life seen the Black Stars quit football because they did not qualify for the World Cup, they still play all the time. I have seen presidential candidates who have not won the presidential seat but are still attempting. So, if I have attempted the World Record and it wasn’t successful, it does not mean that I should give up,” she added further.

According to her, the previous attempt, which occurred in December 2023, took only two weeks of preparation, and there is more than enough time to prepare if she wants to try again.

Afua Asantewaa Aduonum embarked on a remarkable endeavor in Ghana on Christmas Eve in 2023, striving to break the Guinness World Record for the longest singing performance.
