However, she has told the Daily Graphic that in addition to the record on singing, the team would also be applying for the first Ghanaian and African female to perform for five continuous days.

The longest-lasting musical event in Ghana and Africa, the first musical show to attract eight DJs in continuous performance across five days, and the first female to attempt a singing marathon.

“I think the current attempt I did captures four records, but many haven’t paid attention. There are many records that I have broken, but you have to apply for them separately.

”Currently, we are doing the longest singing marathon, but it applies for four or five records on their platforms. We have submitted the current one, but we are now going to look into the others. We will submit them separately,” she said.
