Longest Interview Marathon Attempter Laments Government and Ghana Media’s Lack of Support

Emmanuel Agyemang, the Ghanaian media personality who recently attempted to break the record for the longest interview held by a single individual, has expressed disappointment over the lack of support from both the government of Ghana and local media houses.

Despite surpassing the previous record of 37 hours, 44 minutes, and 17 seconds with an impressive interview time of 43 hours, 54 minutes, and 23 seconds, Agyemang revealed that his team received no support from government or the ministry in charge.

He stated that his team is now meticulously compiling evidence to seek certification from the Guinness World Records.

Addressing concerns about disqualification during his interview on Adinkra Radio in New York, Agyemang emphasised his team’s strict adherence to all regulations. He noted that instead of the mandated five-minute breaks, they opted for four-minute intervals to avoid any potential disqualification.

In his interview, Agyemang lamented the lack of support from media organisations despite his status as a prominent figure in the industry. According to him, only two television stations broadcasted his attempt, with his team handling all aspects of production and distribution.

Dispelling rumours of hospitalisation following the marathon interview, Agyemang clarified that he sought medical advice when he broke the record and was advised not to continue at a certain point. He emphasised that the decision to end the attempt was based on professional medical guidance rather than health concerns resulting from the interview.

Regarding the timeline for Guinness World Records’ response, Agyemang indicated that his team anticipates feedback within the next 12 weeks as they finalise the submission of relevant documentation.
