Ghanaian singer, Wendy Shay has told her colleagues in the music industry to appreciate their Nigerian counterparts for bringing the world’s attention to Africa.
Taking to Twitter, the music star averred that Nigerians have given Africa global relevance through Afrobeats. She then admonished her countrymen to wake up and smell the coffee.
“GHANAIAN ARTISTES SHOULD THANK NIGERIANS ARTISTES, FOR BRINGING THE WORLD’S ATTENTION TO AFRICA …THROUGH AFROBEATS. GHANA WAKE UP!”
Speaking in a recent interview on Accra-based radio station Peace FM, Wendy Shay claimed that she knows some female celebrities who are dating and sleeping with “underground Nigerian singers”.
According to her, it is sad because Ghanaian singers can’t easily penetrate the Nigerian entertainment industry, talk less of dating a Nigerian celeb.
She chided the Ghanaian celebs and urged them to stop the act because it is disrespectful and could also be the reason why Ghanaian music isn’t doing well.
“Our top stars not only musicians… all you see are an underground artiste from Nigerian who comes and is dating a top female star in Ghana. I can’t mention names but it’s the female celebrities I’ve seen do that. It’s heartbreaking.
I can’t mention names because if I do that, it will be like I’ve personalized the issue but it’s an observation I’ve made for some time now. Even the country as a whole, you’ll realize that we support outsiders than we support our own,” she said.
