Merqury Quaye’s role in the historic singathon was occasioned by a call from Ghanaian Radio Presenter Ola Michael on Peace FM where Merqury willingly declared to support the cause.

Merqury Quaye, who is famously referenced as the father of all DJs, identified and assembled other top Ghanaian DJs to keep the music on rotation throughout the record attempt. DJ Ikon, DJ Sticker, Mr Shark, DJ Fantastic, DJ Legend, DJ Nesto, DJ Mark, and DJ Sleek were the notable DJs who played on rotation.

Merqury showed unwavering support by actively participating in rehearsals, song arrangements, and offering moral encouragement to Asantewaa during her lowest moments. The followers of the record-breaking attempt frequently requested Merqury’s presence at the scene to uplift and motivate Asantewaa.
