Boomplay Ghana’s user insights for 2023 are officially in and the streaming services’ listeners have spoken: Wendy Shay is again the undisputed Queen of Ghanaian music for the second time in a row. The RuffTown Records star clenched the position of Top Female Artist from Diana Hamilton and Gyakie, who came in at #2 and #3 respectively.
“I am so delighted to have topped this category two times in a row and for a third time,” Wendy Shay shared. “I want to say a big thank you to the fans; this is all them and I don’t take this moment for granted. It means the world to me. Trust me, 2024 will be an amazing year.”
Wendy Shay is not a newcomer to such triumphs. The sensational singer, whose streams on Boomplay sit at a whopping 63.8M, replicated this feat in 2020 and 2022, spotlighting her knack for industry-leading hits. The ‘Survivor’ hitmaker has been terrific since her debut in 2018. She has won multiple awards and nominations, breaking into Ghana’s Top 30 Influential Women in Music as per the 3Music Awards.
