Last week a photo Wendy Shay took with Former Ghanaian President, John Agyekum Kuffuor went viral for all the wrong reasons. The singer was criticized for dressing inappropriately when she and her fellow Youth Employment Agency (YEA) Ambassadors officially paid a courtesy call to the ex- president to solicit his support for a project.Wendy Shay received so much backlash she had to render an apology.
