In other news, Ghanaian singer Wendy Shay, real name Wendy Addo, has disclosed her manager, Bullet of RuffTown Records, introduced her to Jesus Christ and has been helpful in her Kingdom journey.

During her interview with Nana Aba McBrown on the United Showbiz, Wendy Shay highlighted how she came to know Christ and her rebirth.

''When I say Bullet was the one who introduced me to Christ, it is true. Growing up, I knew about Christ but I didn't have a personal relationship with him. When I moved to Germany, at a point I came to believe he didn't exist because of the comfort. But when I returned to Ghana, I came to know the other side of life. I got to find Jesus Christ through Bullet who took me to church,'' said Wendy Shay.
