‘Celebrity Is An English Word’ – Wendy Shay Replies COP Kofi Boakye
Ghanaian musician, Wendy Asiamah Addo who is known as Wendy Shay has replied to one of Ghana’s police chiefs, COP Kofi Boakye.
This comes after COP Kofi Boakye asked a question about who a celebrity is during the time the police met some of the popular Ghanaian personalities in the creative arts industry.
During the meeting, COP Kofi Boakye wrote;
“I want to say the sense of entitlement of celebrities is becoming overwhelming. And I just don’t get it. Some of the things you do are disgusting, truth be told…If you want privileges what privileges do you want? That you can pull a weapon at anytime and nothing will be done to you? No, that is not possible. We cannot do that.
Who is a celebrity? What is the operational definition of the word celebrity? I think we should get that because I am confused.”
Reaction to this, Wendy Shay took to her verified social media handle on the popular micro-blogging platform, Twitter and wrote;
“Celebrity is an English word,it means a famous person especially in entertainment or sports etc,but it seems some Ghanaians have their own definition for the word celebrity, somebody being famous(celebrity)too Dey pain u people ooh Dabi smh
Ghana wake up!”
