I’m ‘number one’ in spite of vehement criticism – Wendy Shay to fans
Ghanaian Afropop and Highlife singer Wendy Shay hit back at her critics while also urging her fans to find motivation from her career journey in the event that they become disheartened.
On Saturday, January 7, 2023, when she was wrapping up her performance at the West Hills Mall in Weija, Greater Accra Region, Wendy made the remarks.
“I did today’s show for you,” Wendy noted with passion. “Because of you, I am at number 1 on Boomplay. That’s the reason I did this show.”
“Forget social media hate, you people are the real fans,” she stressed.
“We used four days to organise this show,” she revealed
Addressing “haters” who may mock the fact that “it was a free show,” to undermine the overwhelming attendance, she challenged: “Attempt a free show and let’s see if even a little bird will show up.”
The popular singer pleaded with the crowd to be motivated by her experience.
“When I came into this industry, some people said ‘Wendy Shay doesn’t know how to sing’ and ‘Wendy Shay is not talented’,” she recalled.
“Some even said, ‘Wendy Shay is not beautiful’,” she added and showing disgust, invited the audience to take a good look at her voluptuous ”body.” She spun around, bent over, twerked and emphasised: “Look at this nyash [bottom].”
In fact, “I’m prettier than their wives and their girlfriends,” she asserted on the ‘Shay Concert’ stage. The crowd and the hypeman were ecstatic. “People who look like insults are insulting me.”
At this juncture, the ‘Heaven’ hitmaker, clad in glittering bum shorts, a push-up bra and elbow-length gloves, all black, instructed everyone who is “discouraged and downcast,” to lift up their hands and make a spiritual declaration “repeating what I say.”
“Say, ‘With God on my side, if Wendy Shay has been able to do it, I can equally do it!” she led as the crowd repeated her words in shouts.
