The Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Youth Employment Agency (YEA) of Ghana, Sammy Awuku is not pleased about the publication and reaction to a viral photograph of musician Wendy Shay and former President John Agyekum Kufuor.

According to him, the Board of the YEA did not expect negative feedback when they arranged for the visit of YEA Ambassadors and management members to President Kufuor's residence.

Mr Awuku in a post on his Facebook wall also adviced the Ambassadors - most of whom are celebrities - to stick to the highest Level of professionalism when paying such courtesy calls.

Management must also ensure that the Ambassadors use these visits to project the very vision of the Board and Project the new employment opportunities the Agency is offering to the teeming unemployed Youth of our Country," he posted.

Social media reaction

Some social media users have criticised YEA Ambassador Wendy Shay for the attire she wore to the visit. She wore a blue-black crop-top, loose pants and a block plain heel for the visit and was pictured seated by the former President who was casting a glance at her.

Eagle-eyed Twitter users also advised her to emulate actresses Jackie Appiah and Emelia Brobbey who they claim were appropriately dressed for the occasion.

Others have also made reference to her hit song Uber Driver which describes how men like looking at attractive women and has the lyrics; "Kufuor pɜ hwɜ" (which means Kufuor likes looking).
