Ghanaian journalist, entrepreneur and women empowerment advocate, Afua Asantewaa Aduonum, is hoping to set a Guinness World Record.
She is aiming to break the Guinness World Record for the longest singing marathon by an individual.
Afua will be performing non-stop from December 24 to 27 in Accra, Ghana.
A few days ago, her application to attempt the record was accepted by Guinness World Records. She is aiming to sing for more than 117 hours continuously, surpassing the current record holder Sunil Waghmare of India.
Her focus is also on promoting Ghanaian music globally, showcasing various genres such as gospel, highlife, and hiplife.
By following the strict guidelines set by Guinness World Records, Afua Asantewaa Aduonum must sing over 3,200 different Ghanaian songs without any repetitions. Each song must be performed within a two-minute mark.
The current record holder, Sunil Waghmare, attained the feat in Nagpur, India, from March 3 to 7, 2012, by singing a diverse selection of popular Indian songs with no repetition within four hours.
Despite how challenging it may be, Asantewaa is optimistic about breaking this record and bringing recognition to Ghanaian music on the global stage.
She has therefore called on Ghanaians to support her in achieving this goal.
