Rufftown Records artiste Wendy Shay burst into the music scene after the torch bearer for the record label, Ebony Reigns lost her life in a road accident early this year.
And ever since she got introduced into the industry, she has released some hit songs which are of course explicit because “sex” is what’s selling songs of most musicians.
Well, Wendy has a latest one, Masakra, with Takoradi based musician Ray James and it’s a perfectly recorded jamma song which has the potential of becoming a Christmas banger.
And Wendy claims that she has gone gospel, with Masakra. But in as much as she’s trying to sell the “gospel” idea to us, no one can doubt the fact that her song is adulterous.
In her song, she explained that she is being blamed for every bad thing that goes on in society. In that vein, she is going to establish a church. But the song which was sang in twi translates differently in the “I’m going to establish a church” line. The twi transliteration “Me ko ti asore” can also mean “I have an erection”.

And that’s where the problem comes in. This on its own does not qualify the song to become a gospel song. The thing is, don’t bring God (gospel) into your adulterous songs and it’s simple. According to the Bible in one of the 10 commandments, “Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain” (Exodus 20:7 – KJV).
There are also concerns that the song on its own doesn’t play the idea Wendy wants to sell, probably unless you watch the video.
