Throughout this week, Wendy Shay has been celebrating her two years anniversary in the Ghanaian music industry. She went on a media tour of a sort for that reason, and even released a song, ‘Emergency’ that had Bosom P-Yung on it.
During some of those interviews, she made mention of some of the agonies she has had to go through even to point where she had a meltdown. She even ‘died’ twice but resurrected, she disclosed in an interview. However, today she made her next stop at 3FM, where she was on Urban Blend with Miriam Osei Agyeman. Prior to that, she was Giovani Caleb’s Showbiz 360.
Wendy Shay again had a lot to reveal in this interview, some of which were quite shocking. The singer upon stating she came to Ghana purposely to work with Rufftown records was then asked, whether she actually inspired to work with the record label. She answered yes, explaining that that was due to how she felt about the late Ebony Reigns. So Ebony made her inspire to join the label. She revealed:
“Right! I mean there is no two ways about it … When I saw her, I was like wow!, if she can do it then I can do it too. So if I’m coming to Ghana and it’s not Rufftown records, then there is no need for me to come.”
Moreover, she also disclosed how badly the death of her inspiration, Ebony had hit her. Nonetheless, when asked about why she always faced massive backlash from Ghanaians, no matter what she did. The ‘Steve Wonder” hitmaker narrated that it was also due to Ebony’s death. Ghanaians started behaving coldly towards her because they felt she wanted to take Ebony’s place in their hearts on a silver platter.
“Yes, its because like I said, they felt like I wanted to gain their love or u know, their love for Ebony by force, without not doing anything. Nti as3 me ho b3 y3 ahyi kakra [I was kind of hated for that] you know, because yeah you haven’t done anything we should just accept you?” Wendy Shay stated.
