Ghanaian songstress Wendy Shay has broken her silence following a near-fatal incident that shocked her fans and the public.
On September 10, 2023, Wendy Shay was involved in a car accident on the Kwabenya Highway in Accra, where her Jeep Wrangler collided with a tipper truck around midnight. The accident not only caused significant damage to her vehicle but also left her with injuries that required her to be hospitalized for approximately five days.
This incident triggered discussions and speculations, especially regarding the unfortunate events that seem to befall artists under Bullet’s Rufftown Music Label. Some people once again pointed fingers at Bullet, the label’s manager, in light of previous tragedies, including the untimely death of Ebony in a similar accident.
However, Wendy Shay has now addressed her ordeal. On September 20th, she took to her Instagram page to share a snippet of a song she had recorded prior to the accident. Although the song’s title wasn’t provided, the lyrics indicated her resilience and determination to overcome challenges.
“If I’m your friend. And you’re my friend Where were you?
When I was in need. When I was down. When I was broken
You never call me. No butter for my bread. If you no dey love me now. Don’t love me when I’m gone.”
The caption to the post read, “I recorded this song on 7.09.2023, had an accident on 10.09.2023. The lyrics in this song is making sense to me now…Some people will only love you when you are dead…I am Alive by the Grace of God. Thanks to GOD, my family, team, and my Fans for their support and prayers. Ghana, please say a big Thank you to these celebs who showed me love when I needed it most”
Wendy mentioned a few of her coworkers who, according to her, had helped and supported her during her recovery.
Fans and other celebrities responded to her post by expressing their relief at her well-being and sending her an outpouring of love.
