The hate I received at the beginning of my career pushed me to work harder -Wendy Shay

Ruff Town Record signee, Wendy Shay says that she was not bothered by not receiving love at the beginning of her career since it pushed her to work harder.


Speaking on TV3’s New Day show recently, Wendy Shay, real name, Wendy Addo, said she suffered racial discrimination as a black growing up in Germany and so was very surprised to experience similar treatment back in her home country.

That notwithstanding, she didn’t allow the negative energy to get to her, which she confirmed was due to the pain and shock following Ebony’s death, and her subsequent signing on by Ruff Town Records.

Wendy Shay said ensuing events rather played in her favour since every artiste yearned for attention and she was privileged at the time to be getting that, whether it was good or bad.

“Living in a country where I thought racism was a thing, I raised my eyebrows when I got the same treatment from people.

“But also came at the right time for my career. Everything that I had achieved is very pivotal on the time I came into the industry.

“It is every artiste’s prayer to get attention and I got the attention whether good or bad, and given that opportunity, I didn’t play with it. When life throws lemon at you, you just make lemonades,” he stated.

Wendy Shay announced her presence on the music scene with her debut “Uber Driver” in 2018. She has warmed herself into the hearts of music enthusiasts with a number of popular tunes including “Bedroom Commando”, “Astalavista”, “The Boy is Mine”, “Cut It” and “Survivor”.
