Rufftown Records signed artiste, and self-acclaimed Queen of Ghana Music Wendy Addo also known as Wendy Shay has said that her management did not charge her anything when she was signed on their record label.
Wendy Shay has revealed that although it is a norm for an artist to pay his or her record label when they sign them, her story was different because she did not pay a penny to her current record label, RuffTown Records when she got signed by Bullet.
Recounting how she joined RuffTown record, Wendy said that her uncle, Jeff Konadu Addo who is the Eastern Regional Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) introduced and recommended her to her manager, bullet after discovering her God-given talent.
Speaking in an interview on OKAY FM with Abeiku Santana, Wendy Shay said, “We never paid any money to Bullet, he didn’t take money from us… He knows how best to run his business.”
“I know that from the onset, there was no money paid to Bullet. That I can confirm…When I was trying to get my record deal, my Uncle covered all the expenses, he has played a big role.”
Wendy Shay who is one of Ghana’s celebrated female musicians said she is highly indebted to her Uncle who motivated her to pursue a music career.
“It was my uncle who discovered my talent, I was in the shower taking a bath when he heard me sing. He called my name, Abena, and confessed that I was a great singer. I had come to visit during one of my holidays. That is how he motivated me to record my first demo at a studio,” she revealed.
