Ghanaian singer and songwriter, Wendy Shay, has made it clear that she has no intention of giving up her music career for marriage, unlike some female creatives who have stepped away from the industry after getting married.
She emphasized that she would not abandon her music career under any circumstances related to marriage.
In an online conversation on Joy FM’s Twitter Spaces, Wendy indicated any man who wants to marry her needs to align with her music aspirations because music is what makes her relevant in the world.
“I am not even thinking about marriage, because you know music is my destiny and that is what makes me relevant in this life and so I don’t think that I will trade something like that for marriage,”
“You should be in alignment with my destiny. If it’s just lovey-dovey and you just loving me and taking care of me, I don’t think that is enough for me to give you attention,” she added
She stated that simply affection and caring for her would not be enough to pique her interest.
She feels that any man who wishes to be with her must also support her music profession, effectively combining the two areas of her life.
In subsequent conversations, she indicated that her current composition, ‘Every Man Cheats,’ is a song to empower and urge women to stay grounded and quit making compromises for men who eventually betray on them.
“The song is to make a statement that men are prone to cheat and no matter a woman’s status, beauty, or influence, men will still cheat so it’s about time women came to the realization and understand that keeping a man goes beyond big boobs and big buttocks.
I’ve seen many women lose their lives because they went under the knife thinking that would save their marriages or relationships and I think women should rather build their inner qualities rather than focus too much on their physical,”
She advocated for women to focus on developing their inner qualities, which ultimately make them attractive and independent, not reliant on a man’s validation.
