Wendy Shay says that she was not bothered by not receiving love at the beginning of her career because it pushed her to work harder.
In a recent appearance on TV3‘s New Day show, Wendy Shay, shared her journey and the challenges she encountered.
Wendy Shay faced racial persecution as a child in Germany because she was black. She was caught aback, however, when she returned to her home country of Ghana and was subjected to identical treatment.
She didn’t let the negative vibe affect her, which she confirmed was due to the sadness and shock of Ebony’s death and her subsequent signing with Ruff Town Records.
The ‘Habibi’ hitmaker stated that these circumstances worked in her favor because every artist craved attention, and she was fortunate to be receiving it at the moment, for better or worse.
“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,” she stated
