Bob Marley And 2 Pac Were Successful Musicians But Never Won A Grammy – Wendy Shay



Ghanaian female music diva, Wendy Shay has joined the list of Ghanaian musicians expressing their displeasure over the constant evaluation of their works to that of their Nigerian counterparts.

Even though Nigerians have been widely recognized to be the benchmark for the triumph of African musicians, it appears as if Ghanaian musicians are always facing the peril of castigations for what naysayers believe is below par.

The simmering conversations have been upheaved in the last few days when Ghanaian dancehall singer Shatta Wale described Ghana’s music industry as a “feeding bottle” compared to the Nigerian industry, which he termed as a “Hennessy bottle”.

In the concurrent days, the likes of dancehall artiste, Stonebwoy waded into the conversation in a Twitter(X) Spaces discussion and expressed lots of hope about Ghanaian musicians having the potential to make a huge global impact and success when they also get the right support and investments as their Nigerians counterparts are noted with.

For acts like Fameye, the unwarranted assessment of Ghanaian musicians against Nigerians have gotten him inyk a state of depression, knowing just how much hard work Ghanaian artists were putting into their projects and yet, their efforts were being pooh-poohed simply because of the achievements attained by Nigerians on the international front in recent years.

Perhaps, to show massive support and debunk unjustified claims on Ghanaian musicians, Wendy Shay asserted that filling the O2 arena and winning Grammy should not be the main standard for assessing the success of an artiste.

In tweet(X) shared by Wendy Shay earlier today (August 29), the Rufftown Records signee stated that great musicians like Bob Marley and 2Pac never got the opportunity to win a Grammy award, so critics of Ghanaian musicians should let them breathe.
