‘I wanted to end my sing-a-thon on Sunday instead of Friday’ – Afua Asantewaa

32

Guinness World Record contender Afua Asantewaa Aduonum expressed her willingness to extend her Sing-a-thon to Sunday, despite initially planning to conclude the event on Friday.

Aiming to set the record for the longest continuous singing session, Asantewaa embarked on this unique journey on the midnight of Saturday, December 23, and sang tirelessly for five consecutive days, concluding on Friday morning with a total time of 126 hours and 52 minutes—pending verification by Guinness World Records. This, she believes will be enough to surpass Indian singer Sunil Waghmare who did 105 hours in March 2012.

In an interview with Naa Ashorkor on TV3 Newday, Asantewaa shared that although she officially concluded her attempt on Friday, December 29, 2023, she was determined to continue and finish on Sunday to compensate for the breaks taken during the endeavor.

“No. I was actually fighting the health team; I wanted to end on Sunday,” Asantewaa revealed when asked if there was a point where she considered giving up.

She emphasised, “I believe that the test itself was for the first three days. After the three days, I was fine and I wanted to move on to Sunday, but my health team advised me to stop.”

Asantewaa explained that it is common to adapt to challenges after the initial three days, and she was eager to continue, especially given interruptions due to power outages. She aimed to maximize her singing time to avoid any deductions.

Asantewaa’s audacious attempt garnered widespread recognition across the country and beyond, attracting renowned Ghanaian musicians, media personalities, actors, actresses, and politicians to the Akwaaba Village to witness her resilience.

While awaiting the official judgment from Guinness World Records, she has extended her support to another Ghanaian woman, Failatu Abdul-Razak, attempting to break the record for the longest cooking marathon, which began on January 1, 2024 and anticipated to end on January 5, 2024.
