Afua Asantewaa, a media personality and events organiser, set out on Sunday, December 24, 2023, to break the sing-a-thon record currently held by India's Sunil Waghmare.

Waghmare's record was set in Nagpur in India with him singing from March 3-7 in 2012 but may be broken by the Ghanaian.

While Asantewaa surpassed Waghmare's 105 hours on Thursday morning, she did not stop. She continued singing into the morning of Friday, December 29, in order to makeup for lost time.

But at about 6:52am, the medical team behind Asantewaa's sing-a-thon pulled the brakes on her

Addressing the crowd gathered at the Akwaaba Village, Asantewaa expressed gratitude to those who supported her.

“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.
