RuffTown Records act Wendy Shay says of all the things she has suffered since she came into the music industry, the worst is the death threats she received over the late Ebony.
In an interview with Graphic Showbiz recently, Wendy said, she received several messages in the inbox of her social media pages asking her to quit music if she valued her life.
“I had death threats; people telling me all kinds of things like they will kill me if I do not stop music, if I do not stop being like Ebony. I can never be her and I got confused because I was never like her, I have never wanted to be like her,” she said.
Wendy said what people did not know was that she is where she is today because of what Ebony stood for.
“Ebony stood for Afrobeats, she was herself and did what she loved. That inspired me and I fell in love with her. I had wanted to meet her but unfortunately she passed on. I was and I’m still a fan of Ebony,” she stated.
Rufftown Records is one label that has been able to make stars out of artistes they sign in a short time and Wendy Shay attributes it all to God.
“We are under the shelter of God, we do not joke with the God factor under this label and so I believe that is part of the reasons we are who we are.
“Bullet is also one person who makes sure his artistes are comfortable. He is good at that so it gives us no option than to be ourselves and excel in our dealings,” she stated.
Talking about her financial standing now Wendy said it was better.
“My status now is really better. I recall when our house got burnt, if I was not Wendy Shay, I’m wondering how I would have been able to survive or help my mom and brother get a roof over their heads,” she disclosed.
