Unfortunately, the Guinness World Record (GWR) has disqualified Ghana’s Afua Asantewaa’s sing-a-thon attempt.

In a tweet responding to a comment enquiring about her attempt, the GWR said;

“Unfortunately, Afua’s Guinness World Record attempt for the longest singing marathon was not successful but we hope that she will make another attempt soon.”

The GWR also noted that the evidence check had already begun before Afua requested priority service hence her earlier payment has been refunded.

Amidst the unfortunate news, recall that on 29th December 2023, GhPage media published an article which threw light on the possible reasons that could get Afua Asantewaa disqualified.

In the video, Afua Asantewaa violated some of the rules set by Guinness World Records for the Sing-A-Thon category.

 The video pointed to specific instances where Aduonum allegedly took more breaks than allowed and engaged in unauthorized activities during her marathon singing session.

One of the key concerns raised by us was the frequency and duration of the breaks taken by Aduonum throughout the Sing-A-Thon.

Guinness World Records guidelines typically stipulate specific rules regarding breaks to ensure that participants face a consistent and challenging environment.

It’s obvious that Afua Asantewaa exceeded the permissible limits for breaks and it has consequently jeopardised the validity of her record attempt.

Aside from the aforementioned, Afua Asantewaa was also seen jamming to some of the songs she performed during the Sing-A-Thon.

Guinness World Records often has strict regulations to maintain the integrity of record attempts, and any unauthorized activities or deviations from the prescribed guidelines may lead to disqualification.

Let’s take a quick look at the Guinness World Records’ rules for Sing-a-thon.
