Afua Asantewaa Owusu Aduonum, the Ghanaian women’s rights advocate, journalist, and event organizer who captivated the nation with her singing marathon Guinness World Record attempt has ended her quest after 126 hours and 52 minutes.
While verification from Guinness World Record judges is pending, Asantewaa’s effort is believed to have significantly surpassed the existing record set by India’s Sunil Waghmare in 2012.
The marathon commenced at midnight on December 24, 2023, and concluded on the morning of December 29, 2023.
As we await official approval from Guinness World Records, one Ghanaian on Facebook by the name Abrantie Kwasi Gyamfi tagged the awarding body in a post he made on Facebook to prompt them that Ghana is joining them soon.
In a reply, Guinness World Records said;
Hi Abrantie, we look forward to receiving evidence, this event certainly seems to have captured the public’s imagination.
