Meet Afua Asantewaa Aduonum, the Young Ghanaian Woman Aiming to Break Guinness World Record For Longest Singing Marathon

Young Ghanaian woman, Afua Asantewaa Aduonum, is on a journey to break the world record for the longest singing marathon by an individual. Aduonum aims to sing for at least 117 hours, a feat that would break the current record of Sunil Waghmare, an Indian who sang for 105 hours in March 2012.

To accomplish this arduous yet fulfilling task, Afua Asantewaa has been singing popular Ghanaian songs of different genres since the early hours of December 24 at the Akwaaba village in Ghana’s capital, Accra.

Several Ghanaians, including celebrities, politicians and influential figures have rallied behind her, offering her all forms of support including cheering her on from her glass studio where she sings.
