The journalist, event organiser and entrepreneur mentioned that she was already enjoying fame before the singing marathon.

“First, the sing-a-thon was not about fame; I already had it. I meet celebrities all the time, and all of them who passed through the Akwaaba Village during my singing marathon were people I met frequently,” she said, according to Graphic Showbiz.

Afua Asantewaa emphasised that she had interviewed almost all the actors, musicians, and celebrities who inundated the Akwaaba Village to support her.

“So, it is not like seeing them for the first time. Although I will not rule out that sing-a-Thon made many more people know about me, I was famous in my own way,” she added.

Projecting Ghana music

The mumpreneur claimed that her goal in embarking on her sing-a-thon endeavour was to promote Ghanaian songs, and she was pleased that she could do so even though she could not break or set a new GWR.
