Wendy Shay has said although she was treated to racism back in Germany, she has been treated worse in Ghana.
Her comment comes on the back of the world joining the US in the protest against racism after George Floyd was murdered in Minneapolis last week.
The ‘Uber Driver’ hitmaker in an interview with Pulse Ghana on Instagram live stated that “I have faced a lot of racism in Germany, I mean that’s where I grew up. I’ve been in a school where I was the only black kid in my class” adding that her neighbourhood a few blacks and that there was a time a white had to switch seats on the bus because of her.
She said aside from wanting to bless the land with her talent, she was also trying to escape racism but is now experiencing worse than before.
“But when I came to Ghana, I’ve experienced the worst things that I didn’t even experience in Germany. Because of the racism, I decided to come to Ghana and contribute to the music industry and also bring my talent and gift so that we can all get the fruit of my gift but when I came here, what I went through was like thousand times of what I have been through in Germany,” she noted.
She believes the reason the whites are able to overcome the whites is that blacks are already divided which is not good.
“Talking about George Floyd’s protest, that is the way to go. We have to stand together during this time. I commend that. It is very heartwrenching to see your fellow black person put on the ground, such a big man killed right in front of us. It is so coldblooded. May his soul rest in peace of course.
“Black lives matter but while doing black lives matter, we have to do black should love blacks because I feel like between we blacks we don’t really love each other that much,” she said.
