Afua Asantewaa has acknowledged paying Guinness World Records $750, or GHC 9,286 for preferential evaluation.
Afua Asantewaa said in an exclusive interview with Joy News that she and her team paid for the priority evaluation after several weeks of waiting for an official comment regarding her longest singing marathon attempt by an individual from Guinness World Records.
Afua claims that although the priority review costs $650, there are other unstated fees. As a result, she ended up paying $750 in total.
Citing from Guinness World Records’ official website, an applicant who selects the Priority Application option would hear back from the organisation in 5 working days as opposed to the usual 12 weeks.
On December 29, 2023, Afua Asantewaa wrapped up her thrilling quest to set a new record for the longest singing marathon with a time of 126 hours and 52 minutes.
On December 24, 2023, at midnight, the marathon began. It ended early on December 29, 2023.
After getting medical assistance onstage behind a screen, Asantewaa spoke to her followers and admitted that she had become disoriented over the five-day attempt.
At the Akwaaba Village in Accra, Asantewaa expressed thanks for the support she received from politicians, musicians, and security personnel, expressing her hope that this accomplishment would encourage women and young throughout the nation.
