‘I faced a lot of racism in Germany but I thought I’d finally be accepted in Ghana’ -Ghanaian Afro German singer Wendy Shay

Ghanaian artist who used to live in Germany, Wendy Shay, has shared how many struggles she has faced in her journey towards becoming a musician in Ghana.

According to her, she was surprised to have been welcomed with so much hate from her own home country after battling a series of racism in Germany for years.

Ghanaweb reported that, “Leaving my mum at age 22 to come and do music in Ghana was not easy. I faced a lot of racism in Germany and when I finally came back to Ghana, I thought I’d be accepted. But no, it didn’t happen. Nobody knows what I’ve been through. From cyber-bullying to all sorts of embarrassments. I just came here to do music. All I wanted was to give my gift to Ghanaians but they didn’t want to receive it,” she stated in an Instagram live video.
