Self-acclaimed queen of Ghana Music, Wendy Addo, popularly known as Wendy Shay has subtly spat on the hard-earned reputation of Samini as one of the top-flight musicians in Ghana and West Africa as a whole.
To be the first Ghanaian musician to win a MOBO Award in 2006 with Reggae is a feat that one cannot overlook. For the past twenty years, Samini has managed to be among the top four most relevant and respected musicians in Ghana.
One cannot make a list of top four musicians in Ghana and exclude Samini, especially when it’s a list of the top ‘S‘ in Ghana, thus Sarkodie, Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy, and Samini.
However, Ghanaian musician, Wendy Shay, who is signed onto Rufftown Records has decided to change the norm by spitting on Samini’s spot which is tantamount to disrespect.
The “Shay On You” singer took to twitter to make a list of the 4S in Ghana, as a norm, one would expect a list of the aforementioned male musicians, but Wendy Shay took Samini out of the list just so she could fix her name there.
She tweeted; “The 4S
Though she did not specify the order it is clear that She mentioned Shatta as the biggest among the four and herself as the least among the four as she excluded Samini.
For someone like Samini who has groomed the likes of Mugeez, Stonebwoy, and Kofi Kinaata, this is a big disrespect from an artiste like Wendy Shay who is yet to win a second VGMA award.
