Wendy Shay

The young musician got the crowd entertained amidst some cheers and singing along. Interesting to note that, on the course of the performance, she tried some ‘shaku’ dance moves and some twerking which looked weird I must say. She found herself giving the audience more than an eyeful of her bum.

Wendy Shay on that night performed alongside over fifty (50) artistes; Tinny, Lord Paper, EverGriin(Dusin), Tee Rhyme, Atom, Zendimah, Kojo Luda, 2ice, Arigenal, Phada Gaza, Amazing Gee, Neffy, Kay Prinz, Buzy Bwoy, Asaase, S.I.D. and many more.

This event focused on giving recognition to the brand artiste (Rootikal Swagger), to celebrate the shared culture, and heritage of the community with pride and passion, and promote community cohesion and also to promote Ghana’s tourism to global through music.
