Afua Asantewaa of Sing-A-Thin put on an incredible performance at a goodbye supper for the Black Stars before their departure to the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Ivory Coast.
At the event’s kick-off at the Golden Beam Hotel in Kumasi, the Ashanti Regional capital, the sing-a-thon record hopeful performed the national song.
In attendance were dignitaries including President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, Minister of Sports Mustapha Ussif, members of the Black Stars management and technical staff, and iconic reggae/dancehall artist Stonebwoy.
The Black Stars have been training in Kumasi since last week before playing a goalless pre-AFCON friendly against Namibia.
Ghana is in Group B with Cape Verde, Egypt, and Mozambique, while Namibia is in Group E with Tunisia, South Africa, and Mali.
The 2023 AFCON competition will take place from January 13th to February 11th, 2024.

Afua Asantewaa fails to set a world record at the Sing-A-Thon
Guinness World Records has disqualified Ghanaian event organiser Afua Asantewaa, who was attempting to set a new record for the longest singing marathon by an individual.
The evidence check had already begun when Afua requested expedited service, so they reimbursed her purchase earlier this month, according to Guinness World Records.
In a tweet on Friday, February 23, the official answer read: “Unfortunately, Afua’s Guinness World Records attempt for the longest singing marathon was unsuccessful, but we hope she will try again soon.” We’ve seen how inspiring it has been for her followers. The evidence check had already begun when Afua requested expedited service, therefore we reimbursed her purchase earlier this month. We wish Afua the best of success in his future record efforts.
Afua Asantewaa underwent a five-day singing marathon, beginning at midnight on Sunday, December 24 and ending at 7:00 a.m. on December 29.
The young woman had been singing for five days, six hours, and 55 minutes when her record attempt ended on Friday morning.
Okyeame Kwame, Prince David Osei, and others identified as the NPP Manifesto Committee
Some of the personalities picked to draw up provisions for the New Patriotic Party’s platform include Ghanaian artist Okyeame Kwame and actor Prince David Osei.
They are members of the party’s tourism, arts, and culture sub-committee, which is led by Juliet Yaa Asantewaa Asante, Executive Secretary of the National Film Authority (NFA), and Akwasi Agyemang, Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Tourism Authority.
Other members include Catherine Abelema Afeku, former Minister of Tourism, Arts, and Culture; Dr Ama Boafo-Arthur; Prof. Issahatu Adam; and Claudia Lumor, creator of the Glitz Style Awards.
Others include Nana Yaw Manteaw, Yaa Pokua Baiden, Kwaku Osei Korankye Asiedu (KOKA), Festus Frimpong Gyebi, Eric Owusu Akreso, Dr. Ackah Kwame Nyameke, and Radia Adama Saani.
With growing expectations from stakeholders in the cultural and creative sectors, this group would have to create goods that benefit the sector.
Already, Dr Mahamadu Bawumia, the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has vowed to provide internet outlets for Ghanaian musicians if elected President.
On February 7, 2024, he spoke at the University of Professional Studies in Accra on ‘Ghana’s Next Chapter: Selfless Leadership and Bold Solutions for the Future’.
“We will introduce other initiatives such as digital and streaming platforms for our artists to make tourism and the creative arts a growth pole in Ghana,” he said.
The New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) 2020 Manifesto for the Creative Industry made a similar commitment.
“We will build a digital platform for artists to make their products available to the global market,” the National People’s Party (NPP) said.
During his speech, Dr Bawumia vowed to expand on the Year of Return with Beyond the Return, which will take place in December in Ghana.
He went on to discuss reducing the tax burden on creatives.
“Tax incentives will also be provided for film producers and musicians,” he said.
Finally, Dr Bawumia, Ghana’s current Vice President, stated that “to boost tourism and job creation, my government will implement an e-visa policy for all international visitors to Ghana to enable visas to be obtained in minutes subject to security and criminal checks.”
The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has come under fire from players in the creative industry for failing to deliver on certain pledges.
Some of the NPP’s unmet pledges include the establishment of the Creative Arts Fund to assist artists and the construction of theatres in Kumasi, Takoradi, and Tamale.
The NPP also pledged that “given that our artistes do not have the capital to set up studios, we will, as part of the entrepreneurial hub’s strategy, establish large recording studios in Accra, Kumasi, Tamale, and Takoradi, in collaboration with the private sector.” Recording artists can hire space in these studios to complete their tracks.” That promise has likewise gone unfulfilled.
Finally, the development of a conference and exposition facility at the Ghana Trade Fair Company’s property in La is still ongoing.
