The constant insults from people drain me emotionally – Wendy Shay

It can be arguably said that Wendy Shay has been the only female artist to receive constant backlash from people since her penetration in the music scene.

Wendy Shay told the Graphic Showbiz recently that if people had allowed her to prove herself and not put her in a box, they would have gotten to know who she really is.

“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,” she said.

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,” she revealed.

The situation, according to Wendy Shay, has strengthened her. “I thank God for the people around me, my mom, my pastor, Bullet who has been an artiste before so he understands these things and thanks to myself, I have developed a thick skin over time so it does not really get to me again. I have created some kind of shield around me,” she stated.

Wendy Shay is out with a new song Ghana Boys and she stated that the song has been well received.
