Songstress Efya has revealed that she aims to break a world record for the longest song.
Inspired by Nigerian Hilda Baci’s recent achievement of breaking the Guinness World Record for the longest cooking marathon, Efaya is also aiming to join fellow African, Hilda by also breaking the longest song record.
“If I can break a record, it will be for the longest song. Sometimes you can do the longest song recorded. I don’t have to be on my feet singing continuously. I could sing for a couple of days; I could hold a note for long.
“These dirges we have in Ghana are an example, we have 15 minutes of such songs. I could sing for 30 hours if I want to break the record. Hilda recorded 100 hours because she was cooking” Efya revealed her ambition.
Efya mentions that since she does not have to be on her feet throughout the singing, she can break the record.
“The challenge is that you might have to be the only one to sing. Maybe we might not be allowed to tag other people in it because it will seem easy and another country can beat us easily over it,” she added.
The neo-soul singer said the only challenge, perhaps, is she might not be allowed to recruit other people to participate in it.
Despite this potential hurdle, Efya remains determined to break the record and bring pride to Ghana through her musical feat.
