Let Ghanaian musicians breathe – Wendy Shay

Wendy Shay, a well-known artist from Ghana, has chastised Ghanaians for being under continual pressure to meet the same milestones as their Nigerian counterparts.

The “Uber Driver” singer expressed her opinions on Twitter on August 28. She questioned when it became the norm to define an artist’s success by their ability to fill large stadiums across the world. She urged Ghanaians to lessen the strain on artists by mentioning other popular performers like Tupac Shakur and Bob Marley, adding her trademark “wake up” chorus.

“Why is filling 02 and winning Grammy become the standard to measure the success of an Artist? Bob Marley and 2Pac are successful musicians, but never won a Grammy. Let Ghanaian musicians breathe! Ghana wake up!” she posted.

Wendy Shay’s remarks follow a slew of others from the Ghanaian entertainment business who have warned Ghanaians on social media to avoid comparisons and put-downs and instead encourage local artists as they rise to higher heights abroad.
