Afua Asantewaa Owusu Aduonum, a Ghanaian journalist and event organizer, has revealed that she was hospitalized after attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the longest singing marathon by an individual.

Afua Asantewaa’s effort to break the sing-a-thon record began on Christmas Eve and ended on Friday, December 29, 2023, after 126 hours and 52 minutes. She is still seeking confirmation from Guinness World Record assessors.

She added that she is in a pleasant hospital receiving therapy to repair her system after being sleep-deprived for several days.

“I’m in a very comfortable hospital ward to tune my system back to how it was before because I denied myself sleep for five days,” Afua Asantewaa told UTV’s United Showbiz on December 30, 2023.

Her medical team had previously claimed illness as the reason for her decision to end the sing-a-thon on Friday morning rather than Friday noon, December 29, 2023, as originally scheduled.

“But as a medical team, her health is our top priority now, and we need to ensure she’s okay. We would have loved her to go until noon, but as a medical team, we need to stop it and protect Afua as much as possible. Fatigue has set in, and we’ll now work on getting her well and ready to bounce back and address everyone again,” Dr. Grace Buckman, who led Afua Asantewaa’s medical team, stated.
