Wendy Shay advised viewers to lower their expectations after seeing that some Ghanaians treat the Grammy Awards like the World Cup in an interview with Giovanni Caleb for TV3’s Showbiz 360 program.

She emphasized the strength of music and gave examples from the past, such as Tupac and Bob Marley, who both had a significant impact on music history despite never having received a Grammy.

“I think our Ghanaian brothers should have reasonable expectations for themselves since they see this as a global cup when they hear about anything like this. I believe that music transcends all of these things. I do not minimize the fact that the Grammy is the greatest music honor.

“It’s nice to be acknowledged. We will all be content if we succeed one day, God willing, but if it does, it shouldn’t mean the end of the world,” she remarked in a TV3 interview with Giovanni Caleb for the Showbiz 360 program.

“In my opinion, the fact that Bob Marley and Tupac, two of the greatest musicians to have ever lived, did not win Grammy awards suggests that this should not be the standard.” All I’m trying to say is that it shouldn’t be used to gauge a musician’s success. The sole nourishment for the soul is music, due to its immense power. And the ultimate goal is to make even one soul happy,” Wendy Shay stated.

Wendy Shay emphasized that music serves a higher purpose by delivering enjoyment to the soul, and she urged Ghanaians to quit using Grammy awards as the only metric to assess an artist’s success.

This discussion follows the announcement of the 2024 Grammy Award nominees, in which Ghanaian musicians were left off the list in spite of the great hopes of the Ghanaian public.

Disagreement and conversations over the assistance, promotion, and acknowledgment of the Ghanaian music business resulted from the absence of well-known performers like Stonebwoy and Black Sherif, who were praised for their albums, off the list of nominees.
