In an interview with GHOne TV, Afua Asantewaa revealed that she plans to attempt the sing-a-thon record again after failing in her first attempt.

Afronita and Abigail told to get talent management teams: "Business is business"

She said:

"I have been thinking about it a lot, and I believe that the record attempt I embarked on is similar to the Black Stars participating in the World Cup, the Black Queens participating in an African Cup competition or a presidential candidate attempting for the presidency. I have never seen the Black Stars quit football because they didn't qualify for the World Cup. They still play all the time. I have seen presidential candidates who have not won the presidential seat but are still attempting. So if I have attempted the world record and was unsuccessful, It doesn't mean I have to give up."

Afia Asantewaa expressed optimism about holding the world record in her second attempt. She stated that she has more time to prepare for a second attempt at the record.
