In the upcoming event on March 9, 2024, Felicity Asantewaa aims to make history with a unique twist – a ‘washcar-a-thon’ near Executive Club in East Legon. Her ambitious goal is to break the Guinness World Record for the most cars washed by an individual in just 8 hours.

Fueled by a strong commitment to empower young women in Ghana and advocate for gender equality, Felicity aims to use this endeavor to showcase the various opportunities available to women. Instead of emphasizing competition with men, she wants to highlight that women can excel in diverse fields for their livelihoods.

“I’m not looking to compete with men, but to demonstrate that women are equally capable of pursuing various opportunities for a living,” Felicity emphasized. “I want to promote Ghana’s name and empower young women by showing that car washing can be a viable profession leading to financial independence.”

Despite not owning a car herself, Felicity’s choice of car washing as a medium for empowerment reflects her deep passion for cars and a genuine desire to make a positive impact on the lives of young women.

The event kicks off at 7 am at East Legon Go Go Wash premises, near the Executive Club. Felicity promises a day filled with excitement, featuring Ghanaian music and numerous giveaways.

“The public is warmly invited to partake in the festivities,” she mentions.

The craze for Guinness World Records attempts seems to be rapidly gaining momentum, with a growing number of individuals expressing their eagerness to break various records. Whether it’s in the realms of cooking, singing, speeches, or interviews, many are keen to join the fray and make their mark.

As Felicity Asantewaa readies for March 9, she joins the league of Ghanaians attempting Guinness World Records, following the footsteps of Afua Owusu Asantewaa Aduonum, who set the tone with a daring sing-a-thon in December 2023. Chef Failatu Abdul-Razak, known as Chef Faila, also made headlines with a cook-a-thon, attempting to establish the record for the longest cooking marathon by an individual. Chef Smith has entered the competition, aiming to cook non-stop for fifty days in hopes of claiming the title.
