Bullet’s RuffTown Records signee, Wendy Addo , an Afrobeat and AfroPop songstress and VGMA new artist of the year, popularly known as Wendy Shay has stated that the constant insults and critics from Ghanaians really got to her and she was emotionally drained.
Well, according to the ‘Bedroom Comando’ and “Stevie Wonder” hitmaker, she has now developed a thick and tough skin for these bashing now.
According to her, she never wanted to replace the late Ebony Reigns and feels she has not been treated fairly tagging her as Ebony’s replacement.
“I feel I was not given the chance to be me, to prove what I can do well. I never said I wanted to replace anyone neither did Bullet say anything of that sort yet I was tagged like that. In fact, I was treated unfairly on that level, I wish people had allowed me to be who I wanted to be and earned their acceptance.
I came on the scene just when Ebony had passed and so instead of them waiting for me to grow, they transferred that love to me which turned into something and that is a bit worrying.”
According to Wendy Shay, all the negativity got to her at a point. “It drained me, I got worried because I never said anything like that. Again, I felt I was not welcomed to my home and it was a big blow to me.
“Back in Germany, I was fighting the issue of racism so I thought coming home would have been the better choice but I was welcomed with all these things and at a point, I asked myself why me. I just didn’t get it, everything I do, people had issues with it.
“I used to ask myself that if I was not welcome home then where else will I be because I love my country. Then at a point I told myself, I will stay and fight till the end because I don’t have anywhere to go,” Wendy Shay revealed.
