Ghanaian songstress. Wendy Asiamah Addo, often known by her stage name Wendy Shay, has described how being criticized in public caused her to grow closer to God.
She claims that the harsh criticism she endured when she first began her singing career caused her to become more devoted to God since she couldn’t rely on anyone else.
The Ghanaian singer emphasized that she worked really hard to achieve in a male-dominated field where most women struggle.
On Wednesday, September 6, 2023, Wendy Shay discussed how criticism from some segments of the public affected her life and helped her develop particular attributes in a Twitter Joy Showbiz podcast presented by Kwame Dadzie.
“It [public criticism] keeps me on my toes and always brings the best out of myself. A male-dominated industry made me very hard and develop some qualities that I never knew. So I am not stopping, I’m going further and further.”
“Actually, I will say thank you to everyone who bombarded and bashed me. Because it made me realize who was really for me and who was not. it also made me choose my circle wisely. It [public criticism] actually pushed me closer to God because I realized that I couldn’t depend on any man apart from him,” she said during the conversation.
Wendy Shay likened the criticisms by some Ghanaians to a maid being maltreated by her madam.
“I [Wendy Shay] feel like most Ghanaians treated me like a house help who was always kind of maltreated by cleaning the house and always doing the cooking. Meanwhile, there was another person in the house who was always being pampered, but I was the one who was being maltreated,” Wendy Shay lamented.
Wendy Shay started her musical career in June 2018 and made her public debut with the release of the fascinating tune “Uber Driver,” which was expertly produced by the legendary MOG Beatz.
She rapidly attracted the interest of both fans and critics as a rising artist under the RuffTown Recordz label.
While her music became more well-known, the public’s reactions to her distinctive style and poetry were divisive. Some praised her audacity, while others raised an eyebrow at her daring clothing choices and songs that included subtle sexual undertones.
