Rufftown Records artiste, Wendy Shay feels “very honoured” she scored 2019 Ghana Music Awards nominations.
The event is the country’s biggest music awards scheme.
Powered by Charterhouse Productions Ghana, it was instituted some two decades ago to recognize, celebrate the hard work and dedication of various stakeholders and players in the entertainment industry.
“I feel very honoured. It is an honour,” stated Shay to Antoine Mensah on Drive time show, Route919 on Live 91.9 FM early this week. “I definitely think I’ve worked hard that is why they nominated me.”
She nabbed three nominations: ‘New Artiste of the Year,’ ‘Afro Pop Song of the Year’ and ‘Album of the Year’ at the prestigious awards scheme.
The awards ceremony will be held on May 18, 2019 at the Accra International Conference Center.
Shay also spoke about the late Ghanaian artiste, Ebony being of the “biggest inspiration” behind her decision to pursue a music career in Ghana.
“To be honest, I always wanted to do music but then I would say the love to do Afrobeat music in Ghana, I would say that one of the biggest inspiration was Ebony. That was the reason I wanted to work with Bullet,” explained the ‘Uber Driver’ hitmaker.
“Whenever I came to Ghana, I wanted to make sure that I would inform myself more about Afrobeat so when i came to Ghana in 2017, my uncle produces ‘Bliss On the Hills’ in Kwahu so i was one of the people taking care of the artistes. I was actually mainly there because of Ebony, and actually Shatta Wale because I wanted to see them and that was when I first met Bullet.”
