Wendy Shay is the yearning type, who was incredibly certain she could be an ideal addition to the music industry in Ghana. Luckily for her, she arrived in the possession of one of Ghana’s finest music labels – RuffTown Records.
Owned by ‘Bullet’, one of the hit making managers of music artists, Wendy Shay was lucky to be offered a chance by ‘Bullet’. The abovesaid has been of enormous help to young capable female artists for several years, including the late Ebony Reigns.
Ebony Reigns was named the Artists Of The Year at the Ghana Music Awards, even when she was no more (late). Ebony was an inconceivable artist who assumed control over the Ghanaian music scene within a brief time frame.
She was an evidence to what Bullet can do, especially with all management experience he has gathered throughout these years. Bullet put in his valiant effort, and was prepared to push Wendy Shay to that point.
And of course, Wendy Shay also substantiated herself with “Uber Driver”. This single tune acquainted her with Ghanaians and the world at large. Wendy has since, never looked back in any capacity, paying little heed to countless reprehensions and the social media attacks dispensed to her.
Although, sometimes she calls for the chiding herself, she still stood firm so not be ‘broken down’ by these social media ‘brutalities’. Her music was her weapon, and she ensured, they were all excellent and satisfying to the listening audience.
Since 2018, Wendy has released numerous award-winning hitmaking tunes. She is named among the best music acts in Ghana, and has held up her brand to date.

2022 is the year of Grammys
I’m bringing it to the motherland
Watch me ! — Wendy Shay (@wendyshaygh) January 7, 2022
While a few social media users were satisfied with the artist’s determination and confidence, others were of the view that such a confirmation won’t happen as expected.
They contended that in 2021, the “Break Your Waist” hitmaker swore to achieve such accomplishment, but couldn’t. Thus, they can’t depend on her words.
Nothing comes simple, and with the needed push, Wendy Shay can make a statement, and could become the first female Ghanaian artist to make that set of heroic deed. In fact, it’s not an easy peasy, but she can get it done. After all, it took a considerable length of time for a large number of these Grammy award winners to arrive at that space.
In Africa, a few artists have been nominated in the world’s greatest award ceremony, with the most recent ones being Wizkid, Burna Boy, and Rocky Dawuni. Others are Killbeatz, FuseODG and a couple of others. Some of whom have really won or received nominations. Several years ago, Benin’s Angelique Kidjo and Senegal’s Yousour N’dour were winners at the Grammys making Africa proud and famous.
Rocky Dawuni is in contention for the Best Global Music Album award at the 64th Grammy Awards with his Voice of BunBon, Vol. 1 album. He faced opposition from Daniel Ho & Friends, Angelique Kidjo, Femi Kuti, and Wizkid.
Meanwhile, Ghanaian rapper, Sarkodie, on the matter has stated that winning a Grammy award will be of great joy to him and his fans.
