Reasons why Afua Asantewaa was disqualified by the Guinesse World records


Circumstances leading to the disqualification of Afua Asantewaa by the Guinness World Record have finally been stated by the entity after initial reasons proved too little for Ghanaians to understand until the JoyFM inquiry suggested the main reason.

In a 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.

Asantewaa was perhaps overwhelmed by the crowd and their support that she forgot to strictly follow the rules until the end of the sing-a-ton.

She was however hopeful and dared to inform her fans across the nation and beyond that she will be soon announcing her next plan to the public.

Now social media has not taken it lightly prompting many to wonder if it might turn out the same for Chef Faila who also went through a similar feat in cooking the longest.
