Male musicians want to 'chop' us before we feature them - Wendy Shay reveals

Wendy Shay, also known as “Ghana Wake Up,” has opened up about the challenges female musicians face in the industry, particularly when seeking collaborations with male artists.

In a candid discussion with Berla Mundi on TV3’s special International Women’s Day edition, Wendy Shay revealed the unsettling reality of how some male celebrities demand sexual favors from female musicians in exchange for collaboration opportunities.

Highlighting the male-dominated nature of the entertainment industry, Wendy Shay expressed frustration over the disparity in treatment between male and female artists. While male musicians often readily collaborate with upcoming male artists, they impose additional conditions, including sexual favors, when approached by established female artists for collaborations.

“This is a male-dominated industry where women are mostly overlooked. There is this rejection on the path of women. We get a rejection from our male counterparts when we want to have a feature,” Wendy Shay emphasized, shedding light on the systemic challenges faced by female musicians.

She further lamented the double standard, where male artists are more willing to collaborate with upcoming male artists but impose unfair conditions on established female artists. This disparity creates additional hurdles for female musicians striving to make their mark in the industry.

Wendy Shay’s candid disclosure sheds light on the underlying issues of gender inequality and exploitation within the music industry, sparking important conversations about creating a more inclusive and equitable environment for all artists.
