Afua Asantewaa settles on Aviation Social Centre for Singathon to break Guinness World Record

After days of what many thought was a publicity stunt, Afua Asantewaa has officially launched her bid to break the Guinness World Record for the Longest Singing Marathon(Singathon).

The dynamic Ghanaian lady made an official declaration in Accra on Friday, with the attempt set for December 24 to 27 at the Aviation Social Center.

The current record was set in 2012 by Indian Sunil Waghmare for 105 hours within four days with Asantewaa hoping to break the record with 117 hours within five days.

Speaking at the launch, Mrs Akua Asantewaa Owusu Aduonum said she took inspiration from recent exploits by Nigerian Chef Hilda Baci who broke the Guinness World Record for the Longest Cooking Marathon.

The Broadcast Journalist and Chief Executive Officer for Askof Productions Limited said she would use the attempt to put Ghanaian music on the global stage.

“I was hoping a Ghanaian musician would have taken it up but now I have accepted the challenge and would do my best to make the nation proud,” she stated.

“I love to sing and want to use my talent to make a mark for Ghana.This is about Ghana and we need all the support,” she stated.

She called on the Ghana Health Service, DJs and corporate Ghana to come on board to support her bid.

Already, some Ghanaian celebrities including Sefa, Shata Wale and Nana Ama McBrown have thrown their weights behind Asantewaa.

Electroland Ghana Limited, has also come on board as the official electronic partner for the event.

Head of Marketing at Electroland, Adiza Ibrahim said they were committed to providing all appliances needed to make a successful attempt.

“This is a bold attempt and we are ready to support Asantewaa all the way through while calling on all Ghanaians to come on board,” she added.
