In 2018, Ghana, in fact, Africa woke up to see a beautiful video ‘Uber Driver’ on our TV screens from a new singer, Wendy Shay. The video was essentially snappy, thus activated many people to request who Wendy Shay was?

In spite of the fact that the ‘Uber Driver’ tune was the most loved of the people, they still slammed and accused her for no evident explanation.
A certain number of the enthusiasts of the late Dancehall Queen Ebony didn’t hold tight to why Wendy should come at this time to replace Ebony Reigns as a label mate. Wendy had then returned from Germany as a practicing professional medical attendant to do music in Ghana and fortunately landed in the hands of RuffTown Records.
As idealistic as she seemed to be, the Afropop and Afrobeat singer least expected she could be seriously scrutinized for something she is ignorant about. In reality, from the first day of her signing into the record label, she has never known ‘peace’, but that didn’t break her in any capacity. Wendy rather exploited the reactions to take a shot at her specialty to be a standout amongst other female acts in Ghana now.
