Many Ghanaians, especially celebrities, expressed their amazement on social media, wondering whether any Nigerian had posted in favour of Asantewaa.

Oluwatosin Oluwole Ajibade, commonly known as Mr Eazi, has become the first Nigerian celebrity to openly endorse Afua Asantewaa in her attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the longest singing marathon.

Sunil Waghmare of India holds the record, which he achieved by singing for 105 hours from March 3 to March 7, 2012.

She launched the five-day event, which began at midnight on December 24, 2023, with OSIBISA’s ‘WOYAYA’ and followed it with two gospel songs.

Earlier this year, a Nigerian woman named Hilda Baci attempted to break a similar world record and gained a lot of support from Ghanaians.
