Afua Asantewaa Aduonom has concluded her extraordinary singing journey which began on December 24, 2023 at midnight.
Afua Asantewaa Brings Her Sing-A-Thon To An End At 126 hours, 52 minutes
The Ghanaian celebrity and journalist has completed his Guinness World Record attempt for the longest song, a total of 126 hours and 52 minutes.
Although his feat has not yet been officially verified by the Guinness World Record judges, it surpasses the previous record set by Indian Sunil Waghmare in 2012.
At the time of the release of this report, his dedicated team held a press conference to express gratitude to the people of Ghana for their continued support throughout this period.
Afua took up the challenge and perfectly sang over 300 songs in a row, with short breaks in between. Afua, adorned in the vibrant colors of the Ghanaian flag, looked tired and also expressed her sincere gratitude to all those who supported her and Ghanaians from all walks of life who stood by her.
This remarkable achievement was notably achieved during a five-day event that began at exactly midnight on Sunday, December 24 and ended on December 29, 2023.
Afua sees this as a wonderful opportunity to introduce exceptional Ghanaian music to the world. She committed to performing only local music during her recording attempt.
The event received overwhelming support from thousands of music lovers and well-wishers, including well-known Ghanaian celebrities, who gathered at Akwaaba village to show solidarity and witness the moment historical.
As part of the evidence, Ms Asantewaa mentioned that she had to document all her training sessions, preparations and interviews, which will be included in the final video of her attempt.
During the attempt itself, Afua clarified that she could sit, stand or lie down as long as she continued to sing; position doesn’t matter. However, unlike typical musical performances, she was not allowed to play or hum along with the songs, and there would be no drums. Nonetheless, she managed to strike up a conversation between songs.
Overall, Afua Asantewaa’s record-breaking effort not only grabbed the attention of music lovers but also provided a platform to promote Ghanaian music globally.
