Wendy Shay says the criticism she faced at the start of her career motivated her to work even harder



Wendy Shay shared on TV3’s New Day show that she did not allow the lack of support at the beginning of her career to discourage her. Instead, she used it as motivation to work even harder.

Wendy discussed experiencing racial discrimination during her upbringing in Germany and was surprised to encounter similar treatment in her home country. However, she did not allow the negativity to affect her. Wendy attributed her resilience to the pain she felt after the tragic death of Ebony and her subsequent signing with Ruff Town Records.

She noted that the attention she received from the media, whether positive or negative, worked in her favor as a rising artiste seeking recognition.


“Living in a country where I thought racism was a thing, I raised my eyebrows when I got the same treatment from people.

“But also came at the right time for my career. Everything that I had achieved is very pivotal on the time I came into the industry.

“It is every artiste’s prayer to get attention and I got the attention whether good or bad, and given that opportunity, I didn’t play with it. When life throws lemon at you, you just make lemonades,” he stated.
