After singing for 105 hours, Ghana’s Afua Asantewaa broke the record for the longest singing marathon by an individual at 9:00 am today.
The current record for the longest sing-a-thon is held by Indian singer Sunil Waghmare. Afua Asantewaa plans to set a new record by performing 115 hours, surpassing the previous mark set in 2012.
Although her fans are thrilled to see her accomplish this new milestone, there have also been sincere worries about adhering to the regulations to make sure Afua is on the correct track and not merely on a pointless journey, as occurred to Dominican artist Carlos Silver.
The ambitious attempt by Dominican musician Carlos Silver to set the Guinness World Record for the longest singing marathon was tragically derailed in April 2019.
Even though he broke the previous record by singing for an incredible 106 hours straight, he was still disqualified Silver for breaking the organization’s strict regulations.
Silver’s epic 5-day singing marathon saw him perform nearly 5,000 songs, demonstrating his commitment to beat the record. This was his second effort, having failed to break the record in 2016.
Video evidence was used by Guinness Records to demonstrate that Silver took breaks between songs that lasted up to two minutes, which is obviously longer than the authorized 30-second interval.
A team member revealed that a team is calculating Afua Asantewaa’s break intervals to make sure she stays inside the qualifying standards, therefore expectations are high for her to succeed.
Afua Asantewaa has been inspiring musicians nationwide with her unwavering dedication and can-do attitude since she began singing at midnight on Sunday. Notable musicians who have shown their full support for Akwaaba village include Shatta Wale, Sista Afia, Sarkodie, Kwabena Kwabena, Efya, and Kuami Eugene.
