According to Afua Asantewaa, burglars broke into her home before the attempt. The pressure of the daring task and frustrations from other unfortunate events forced her to take a quick social media break after the attempt.

Because of the break, she didn't realise that a clip of her voice-breaking moment as she tried to sing the hook of Gyakie's Something had gone viral.

The viral challenge attracted top personalities in Ghana and abroad, including Rita Ora.

Afua Asantewaa also said that Nollywood actress Mercy Johnson sent her a DM after doing the challenge.

"I thought they were mocking me, but she texted me and said she was proud of me," Afua disclosed in her recent interview.
