Afua Asantewaa

Afua Asantewaa Owusu Aduo­num, the Ghanaian lady who attempted to break the Guinness World Records (GWR) for the longest singing marathon by an individual, has officially submitted evidence of her attempt to the world body for valida­tion.

Mrs Asantewaa Aduonum disclosed this to the Spectator Agoro in an interview.

According to her, she and her team have duly submitted the video evi­dence last Saturday for review and confirmation.

She had also submitted other requirements, including her media engagements before the attempt and other essentials ahead of the event.

Mrs Aduonum says she was hopeful of a positive response from the world body in the coming days.

The 33-year-old Asantewaa in her at­tempt to break the GWR, sang for 126 hours and 52 minutes, surpassing the pre­vious record of 105 hours set by Indian Sunil Waghmare in 2012.

Her six-day attempt which started on December 23 was the toast of the Christmas festivities, attracting huge patronage and support from Ghana­ians.

She initially advertised a 117-hour attempt but had to extend for more hours owing to the massive support and interest the event had attracted
