Ghanaian music star, Wendy Shay has asserted that winning a Grammy should not be the determining factor of a musician’s success.
In an interview on Showbiz 360, The RuffTown Records signee encouraged Ghanaians to lower their expectations, despite acknowledging the prestige of winning a Grammy.
“I feel like when our Ghanaian brothers hear of something like this they should manage their expectations because they take it as a world cup. I feel like music is bigger than all of these things. I am not downplaying the fact that Grammy is the biggest award in music history.
She continued; “It is good to be recognised, I mean we will be happy if one day God willing we should win but that should not be the end of the world if it happens”, she said.
Wendy Shay made the observation that although iconic musicians like Tupac and Bob Marley never received Grammy awards, they left a lasting impression on music history.
“I feel like some of the greatest musicians that ever walked on this planet such as Bob Marley, Tupac never won Grammy awards so that should not be the yardstick. All I am saying is, it should not be the standard to measure the success of a musician.
“Music is so powerful that it is the only food for the soul. And to get just a soul to be happy is the ultimate goal”, she added.
