The singer has come out to apologize for the photo she said she released after meeting the former president on official Youth Employment Agency business.
She first apologized to the Statesman for the unintended damage the photo has done to his image and then extended the apology to the Youth Employment Agency and the general population. She has asked that she be forgiven and be considered “a young lady” who is still learning.
“On the 4th of July, 2019, I posted an image of myself and His Excellency Former President John Agyekum Kufuor on my social media timeline. This was after I visited him with my fellow Youth Employment Agency Ambassadors officially. The image I posted went viral on social media for the wrong reasons and I will wish to render an unqualified apology to His Excellency and the board and Management of the Youth Employment Agency. I had no intention of bringing his good image into any public disrepute. I would wish to apologize to the general public as well with most of the comments being directed to my outfit. I am a young lady and I am still learning. To err is human, to forgive is divine. I promise to do better next time. Once again, I am sorry.” She posted on Facebook.
Wendy Shay is a signee of Rufftown Records, a label owned by musician Bullet of Ruff n Smooth fame.
