Ghanaian music sensation, Wendy Asiamah Addo, well recognized by the stage name Wendy Shay, has advised her fellow musicians to get some form of spiritual backing in order to be able to excel in the country’s music space.
According to the ‘Uber Driver’ hitmaker, talent and hardwork alone are not enough, adding that it takes faith in one’s object of worship to complement their hard work in the industry. She further opined that no artiste can make it to the top without any spiritual fortification.
The Rufftown Record signee made this statement while speaking to Kwame Dadzie on Joy FM’s Twitter Spaces on the success stories and challenges of women in showbiz. She asserted that, “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.
She continued; “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.”
It will be recalled that, Wendy Shay, in a recent interview on TV3 revealed that she had a lot of spiritual attacks when she stepped the threshold of the music industry. She noted that;
“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.”
