After fighting racism in Germany, I thought coming home would be different- Wendy Shay on constant backlash from Ghanaians

Ghanaian musician, Wendy Shay has revealed that she’s heartbroken from the ill-treatment she has received from Ghanaians since her introduction into the music scene.

In an interview with Graphic Showbiz recently, the “Uber Driver” hitmaker stated that after facing racism in Germany for most of her life, she did not expect Ghanaians to maltreat and critic everything she does the way they have.

“Back in Germany, I was fighting the issue of racism so I thought coming home would have been the better choice but I was welcomed with all these things and at a point, I asked myself why me. I just didn’t get it, everything I do, people had issues with it”, she said.

According to Wendy Shay, all the negativity got to her at a point. “It drained me, I got worried because I never said anything like that. Again, I felt I was not welcomed to my home and it was a big blow to me.”

Wendy Shay, however, added that she’s toughened up and focused on her career and nothing will bring her down.

“I have developed a thick skin over time so it does not really get to me again. I have created some kind of shield around me,” she stated.
