The Guinness World Records (GWR) has just revealed that an attempt by Ghanaian media personality, Afua Asantewaa, to beat a sing-a-thon record was "unsuccessful".

Ms Asantewaa sang for 126 hours and 52 minutes last year in December, but this was not enough, the world's global record-breaking authority said. In a post on X, formerly known as Twitter, GWR said that it hoped Ms Asantewaa would step up and make another attempt in the near future.

It added that her marathon was "inspirational" but did not clarify why she had fallen short of breaking the record. "We wish Afua the best of luck with any future record attempts," GWR said.
