- Wendy Shay has been compared with the late Ebony Reigns on many occasions
- She has often been criticised and accused of wanting to 'copy' Ebony’s style
- Wendy Shay, however, said they should not be compared because they have different music genres
‘Uber Driver’ hitmaker, Wendy Shay, has asked Ghanaians to stop comparing her with the late Ebony Reigns.
According to Shay, they are different people with different music genres, and so people must not compare her with the late musician.
This is contained in a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Graphiconline.com.
Wendy Shay has come under intense criticism by some Ghanaians who claim she is copying the style of the late Ebony.
She has constantly been reminded of how she can never be like Ebony, especially when she shares video of her songs on social media.
Wendy Shay, since joining Rufftown Records months ago, has released three singles, Uber Driver, Bedroom Commando, and the newest one, Astalavista.
Despite her strong performance so far, it seems Wendy Shay cannot escape the constant comparison to the late ‘Maame Hw3’ star.
It is in this vein that she called on Ghanaians to stop comparing her with Ebony Reigns.
Shay explained that Ebony was a dancehall artiste, while she is an Afrobeat artiste, therefore, their output and performance are going to be different.
“I don’t want people to compare me to Ebony because I am completely different from her. She was a Dancehall artiste and I am an Afrobeat artiste. Despite the fact that we come from the same record label, Rufftown Records, my style is completely different,” Wendy Shay stressed.
She was, however, full of praise for her late predecessor.
“No female artiste has been able to make the impact that Ebony made in less two years and I am so happy for her. Every song she released was a massive hit, from Poison to Maame Hwe, Hustle, Sponsor and Date Ur Fada, just to mention a few,” she said.
Wendy Shay further revealed that she was very comfortable with what Rufftown Records was offering her, adding that she had no intention of moving.
“I am impressed with the work Rufftown Records has done for me so far and I know they have bigger projects for me,” she said.
Earlier in the year, Wendy Shay came under a barrage of attack from social media users who slammed her for allegedly wearing a wig for three months.
Bullet, her manager, and CEO of Rufftown Records, waded into the controversy, telling people to mind their business because that particular wig was Wendy Shay’s brand.
He further revealed that the hair had earned Wendy Shay a juicy ambassadorial deal which he said would be announced later.
