Afua Asantewaa Aduonum, contender for the Guinness World Record for the longest individual singing marathon has been officially disqualified.

Mrs Aduonum embarked on the endeavour in December 2023, aiming to surpass the existing record held by Indian Sunil Waghmare, who sang for an impressive 105 hours from March 3 to March 7, 2012.

Despite her determination, her attempt fell short, resulting in her disqualification from claiming the prestigious title.

The decision to disqualify Asantewaa was conveyed through a statement posted by the official Guinness World Records handle on social media.

The statement expressed regret that her attempt did not meet the necessary criteria for success but encouraged her to consider future record-breaking endeavours.

Part of the Statement read: “Unfortunately Afua’s Guinness World Records attempt for the longest singing marathon was not successful, but we hope that she will make another attempt soon. We’ve seen how inspirational it has been for her fans.”

Guinness World Record also disclosed that she had requested priority service for the evidence check process, which was already underway.

However, despite this request, her attempt was deemed unsuccessful, leading to the refund of her payment earlier in the month.

“The evidence check had already begun before Afua requested priority service, so we refunded her payment earlier this month. We wish Afua the best of luck with any future record attempts,” the statement said.

Despite not achieving the desired outcome, Afua’s dedication and perseverance during the 115-hour singing marathon serve as a testament to her passion for music and her willingness to push the boundaries of what is possible.

Her journey continues to inspire others to pursue their dreams relentlessly, regardless of the outcome.
