Kofi Aduonum is the husband of now popular sing-a-ton Guinness World Records participator known as Afua Asantewaa who has reached worldwide fame for participation in the longest singing marathon ever recorded.

The husband appealed to the Ghana Tourism Board to please consider naming a structure after his dear wife even though her attempt was rejected by the Organisation citing a case of not rightly met criteria on her behalf.

“My appeal to the tourism ministry or government is that the Akwaaba Village is a perfect name but I think it’s high time we honored my wife [Afua Asntewaa]. They should give her space, maybe Asantewaa’s stage or Asantewaa’s corner, to serve as a tourist site.

“Those who watched it on TV, anytime they visit Accra, I believe will find a way to come and have a look at it to see what she did. It’s a personal appeal but I believe it should be considered,” he said.

“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.

“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 tweet from GWR said.

In the statement by the PR Executive for the Guinness World Records, Alina Polianskaya, it was established that these are standard rules that couldn’t have been overlooked.

“Afua Asantewaa’s sing-a-thon attempt was not successful due to guidelines around rest break timings not being met. These rules are standard across all of our ‘longest marathon’ records. We’ve seen how inspirational it has been for her fans…We wish Afua the best of luck with any future record attempts,” the statement contained.
