    Wendy Shay Postpones Release Date For ‘ShayningStar Album’ Indefinitely

    Wendy Shay


    Ghanaian musician, Wendy Shay, has indefinitely postponed the release of her new studio album.

    The album titled: ‘ShayningStar’ was due for release on April 16, 2021.

    But Ms. Shay in a post sighted by African Entertainment on her Instagram page a short while ago, said the release of the album has been shifted to a future date.

    She did not give reason for the postponment, neither did she give any new date for the release.

    She wrote: “Hi ShayGang, I am sorry to announce to yo that the release date for the #ShayningStar album has been postponed.”

    “This is beyond my control but the good news is that  *Nobody* video will drop today,” according to her.

    It would be recalled that as earlier reported by African Entertainment, Wendy Shay released a  five-minutes, thirty-seven seconds documentary recently ahead of the launch of the album.

    In the documentary, she spoke about her struggle to become a celebrity, Ghanaians attitudes towards her, and alleged death threats from a section of the public.

    Ms. Shay pointed out how her life had been tormented in the past because of the late Ghanaian singer, Ebony, with some Ghanaians allegedly threatening to kill her.

    “I was officially introduced to Ghanaians on the night of VGMA 2018,” she said in the documentary sighted by African Entertainment on her Instagram page, noting that “and right after, the Cyber bullying began. Some people thinking I was in to replace the late Ebony, started sending me threatening messages, some say they will kill me.”

    Beginning of Shay’s Music Career

    In the documentary, Wendy Shay touched on her nursing career she had to sacrifice to pursue her music career.

    “Life is all about taking your chances and preparedness,” she stated in an inspirational tune to open her documentary.

    According to Wendy Shay who claimed that her entire music career has been rocked by controversy, cyber bullying, hate messages, among others, she was introduced to Bullet, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Rufftown Records in December 2017 by her Godfather, Kwasi Ernest. She said she came to Ghana from Germany with just €50.

    She says Bullet finally agreed to working with her in March 2018.

    “So I had to make a decision to quit my nursing career in Germany and come to Ghana to pursue my dreams in music,” says Wendy Shay, who is known in private life as Wendy Asiamah Addo.

    “I came to Ghana with just €50,” she said, adding that ” I finally met Bullet, we signed a contract and started recording songs,” the Ghanaian afropop and afrobeats singer born on February 20, 1996 (aged 25) says.

    Lamentations over cyber bullying, embarrassment

    Five months after being introduced to Ghanaians at VGMA 2018, she recounted that she dropped her first album titled: ‘Shay on You’ and won 13 awards with five hit-songs.

    Since then, she said, it has been cyber bullying, and embarrassment, even by some of her colleagues in the music industry.

    The Uber Driver hitmaker lamented that “no one really wanted to know my story.”
