I promise to do better – Wendy Shay apologises to Kufuor, YEA
Singer Wendy Shay has apologised for posting a picture with former president Kufuor that has made headlines for all the wrong reasons.
In an Instagram post, the ‘Uber driver’ hitmaker rendered an unqualified apology to the former president for posting a picture that subjected him to public ridicule.
“I had no intention of bringing his good image into any public disrepute,” the singer explained.
Wendy Shay along with other celebrities had paid a courtesy call to the former president as ambassadors of the Youth Employment Agency (YEA).
However, she received backlash over her outfit after the picture went viral.
Many people criticised the singer for wearing a revealing outfit while paying a call on one of the most respected men in the country.

Meanwhile, the National Organiser of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Sammy Awuku, in a Facebook post expressed displeasure over the attention the photo drew to the YEA.
He tasked management of the Authority to ensure ambassadors stick to the highest level of professionalism when paying courtesy calls.
“Those willing to cooperate should be supported and welcomed and those unwilling to go by these standards MUST be shown the exit,” he added.
Following from the incident, the YEA has also come under criticism for choosing Wendy Shay as an ambassador especially after knowing how she dresses.
However, CEO of the Authority, Justin Kodua Frimpong, believes the aim of his outfit is to get a lot of youth involved in the program and not discriminate against people who adore the singer.
“The whole thing is to get many young people who are well known to push for the program and get a lot of people engaged,” he stated.
Mr Frimpong added, the YEA accepts Wendy Shay’s apology in good faith.
“We are all young, and as we are learning, we are bound to make certain mistakes,” he added.
