Afua Asantewaa’s Sing-A-Thon Unsuccessful, says Guinness World Record

"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 GWR wrote on X (formerly Twitter).

The Guinness World Record (GWR) has said Ghana’s Afua Asantewaa Aduonum’s attempt to break a record for the longest singing marathon by an individual turned out unsuccessful after it reviewed the evidence submitted.

“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 GWR wrote on X (formerly Twitter).

Afua Asantewaa gained sensation during the Christmas holidays when she endured a painful five-day attempt (singing for 126 hours, and 52 minutes) in hopes of becoming the new recorder holder of the longest-singing marathon by an individual.

In the course of those five days, she garnered support from many Ghanaians, drawing massive crowds to the Akwaaba Village in Accra, where the singing took place. Some of that support came from people at the top of government, including Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, Alan Kyerematen, and many celebrities.

While her efforts at setting a record may not have proved successful, she’s also gained the popularity that her attempt brought with it.

A few days after her sing-a-thon, she was appointed Tourism Ambassador by the Ghana Tourism Authority. Recently, she’s signed a number of deals with other companies.
