Get spiritual backing; hard work not enough – Wendy Shay to artistes 

Published

on

RuffTown Records signee, Wendy Shay, has advised creatives to get spiritual backing to be able excel in the industry. 

According to her, talent is not enough; it takes faith in one’s object of worship to complement their hard work. 

Speaking to Kwame Dadzie on Joy FM’s Twitter Spaces on the success stories and challenges of women in showbiz, Wendy mentioned that no artiste can get to the top without spiritual fortification. 

“Every artiste you have seen on top is not doing what they are doing carnally. I go by the mantra ‘work hard and have faith.’ Hard work goes hand in hand with faith. 

After working hard, going to the studio, recording songs, doing whatever you do, you should also seek for [sic] spiritual back-ups. None of us do what we do carnally. It is either you are in the light or you are in the darkness. This is what a lot of underground musicians don’t know. It is either you believe in God or Jesus Christ or whatever you believe in, to order your steps for you. I mean, if you do it with your natural strength, you’ll get tired and discouraged,” she intimated. 

Wendy Shay who is currently out with ‘Every Man Cheats’ and ‘Heartless’ recently said in an interview on TV3 that she had a lot of spiritual attacks when she stepped the threshold of the music industry. 

“Music is a spiritual journey; it has profoundly shaped the woman I am today. It has made me more attuned to the spiritual dimensions of life and the intricacies of the industry I belong to. Growing up in Germany, I never experienced anything like this, but upon coming to Ghana, I had to embrace the spiritual aspect,” she said. 

After five years of being in the music industry, Wendy has chalked a lot of successes, won topmost awards, topped international charts despite scathing criticism of some of her actions. 

She also said on Joy FM’s Twitter Spaces show, Joy Entertainment Unpacked that, in spite of challenges she has faced as a woman in the music industry, she is bent of scratching her full potential. 

Joy Entertainment Unpacked is hosted by Kwame Dadzie every Wednesday from 8pm-10pm on Joy FM’s Twitter handle.

E.L apologizes for asking DJs to stop playing his old songs

Published

on

Award-winning Ghanaian rapper Elorm Adablah, also known as E.L, has issued an apology for his previous comments where he asked DJs to stop playing his old songs.

He clarified his statements during a radio interview with Andy Dosty on Hitz FM.

E.L explained that his outburst stemmed from frustration. Recalling a radio interview where the host kept focusing on his old music while he was there promoting his new releases.

He admitted that his choice of words may have been harsh and apologized if they were misunderstood.

“It happened because I went on this radio interview and the lady who was interviewing me kept on mentioning the old music when I was trying to promote new music. So that’s what frustrated me and I came out and said you know what, don’t play the old songs again, focus on the new music… So I definitely apologize if it was taken the wrong way, that’s not my intention,” he explained.

He emphasised that his intention was not to disregard his old songs but to encourage fans to embrace his growth as an artist.

E.L expressed the importance of fans recognizing his evolution and embracing the new music he creates.

“I misspoke concerning that. But the point I was trying to make at that time was that sometimes artists, we evolve, we grow. And you want people to really try and understand who you’ve become, what you’ve become, and also love you for what you’ve grown into.

“So when that focus is not given or when that attention is not given to you it gets frustrating because people are looking for the old you but there’s no more old you because you have grown into a new person. So what I was trying to say was that let’s try and grow together because the old songs let them be the old songs,” he explained.

Background

Award-winning Ghanaian musician, Wendy Shay, was involved in a car accident.

Reporting from the scene, Deputy News Editor of UTV, Prince Obimpeh, said: “Between the ACP Junction and the Kwabenya stretch, you know the road is usually clear at night, and so the cars are usually at top speed, even though there is police presence on the road. A short distance away from the KNUST Accra Campus Junction, coming out of the valley, I saw people gathered around a car. So, I decided to park and see what was happening. Upon checking, I realized a lady was coming out of a car. She had dreadlocked hair just like Wendy Shay.

“So, I said, let me rush and see, and upon getting closer, I saw it was Wendy Shay. The Wrangler she was using has a custom registration, ‘Shay.’ Quickly, I got closer to her and asked her what was happening. She said she can’t talk much, as she’s in severe pain in the head because she hit her head on the dashboard.”
