Afua Asantewaa’s bid to set a new record for the longest individual singing marathon has come to an end.
Afua Asantewaa underwent a five-day singing marathon that began at midnight on Sunday, December 24 and ended at 7:00 am on December 29 in order to exceed the previous record of 105 hours set by an Indian in 2012.
By the time the young woman’s record attempt ended on Friday morning, she had performed for five days, six hours, and fifty-five minutes.
While addressing the public after her remarkable feat, Afua Asantewaa expressed gratitude to everyone who supported her, including those who showed up at the Akwaaba Village and those who could not.
“At a point, I kept asking which day it was, and I finally got to know that today is Friday. On behalf of my family, team, volunteers, the media, and Ghana Tourism Authority, I would like to say thank you to everyone who participated in this attempt; it has been a smooth journey and a very successful one,” she noted.
The young woman hopes that her efforts will have a positive impact on Ghana’s music industry and inspire youth to embrace more challenges, stating, “there are a lot of things you can try.”
“Thank you to the Vice President and every person; the list is endless…I am thankful to everyone and hope to see you this evening as we celebrate.”
