Ghanaian songstress Wendy Shay clarified her claim that she is the queen of Ghanaian music. According to her, everyone is a queen, and calling herself one should not bother anyone.
Wendy Shay made headlines after she declared on social media that she was the queen of Ghana music three years after her emergence. She further added that she cannot be compared to any other female artiste in the industry except Beyonce.
This statement did not sit with many, who felt Wendy Shay’s claim dismisses their efforts and seniority in the industry.
In her defense, Wendy Shay responded that her fans gave her the title. She also mentioned that her post was to acknowledge it. Thus she did no wrong.
First of all, the Queen of Ghana Music was a title my fans gave me. And who does like good things? They gave me that title, and I was like, if they see me as the queen of Ghana music, I will take it.
“That right there was to confirm the fact that, yeah, I have accepted that title because my fans gave it to me.”
Wendy Shay added that everyone is entitled to whatever they choose to call themselves. She pointed out that she was talking about herself, so others may do the same if they want to.
“I feel everybody is entitled to call whatever they want to call themselves. I think as for giving ourselves a title, everybody is entitled to do so. And I feel everybody is a queen. Other female artists are all queens. But I was talking about myself, so they can also call themselves queens. I never mentioned anyone’s name. I was just making a statement and affirming the fact that my fans have given me that title,” she concluded.
