The acclaimed singer welcomed kindred spirits with open arms, pushing them to band together and make a lasting influence on the foundation's noble cause. Wendy Shay ensured that, in addition to educational contributions, entertainment had a role in the donation ceremony, exciting students with live performances of some of her favourites. For the past three years, the Shay Foundation has been pursuing these humanitarian activities with zeal. Below are extracts from the gift.

Wendy Asiamah Addo, also known as Wendy Shay, provided teaching and learning materials to students at the Weija Presbyterian Primary and Junior High School in the Greater Accra Region on Monday, November 20, 2023, through her organisation Shay Foundation.

Branded exercise books, newly made school uniforms, detergents, and refreshing drinking water were among the kind donations.

This charitable deed, which honoured International Children’s Day, demonstrates Wendy Shay’s dedication to encouraging student access to critical educational resources.

Speaking to the students and staff of the school, the ‘Bedroom Commando’ crooner said, “Shay Foundation is a nonprofit organisation that is committed to seeing to the welfare of both young and old. The organisation aims to support the educational needs of the community. Our main mission is to provide equitable access to quality education for underserved communities. It’s sad to see people drop out of school because they do not have the proper materials. Education is the key to the future, and we must do everything possible to make sure that every child has access.”

Ex-husband drags Xandy Kamel on social media again

Published

"I was still in my wedding gown when the marital problems began." People began phoning to tell me they were having an affair with my husband. In my marriage, I've only felt happy for 5 minutes. We didn't even have sex. "I think we made love about six times in our one year together," a depressed Xandy admitted. Kaninja claims the marriage collapsed because Xandy was more preoccupied with her lesbian lovers rather than their marriage. He added that his ex-wife portraying the victim is merely a front to hide her embarrassment. Kaninja stated that Xandy is unsuitable for marriage since she cannot even arrange her matrimonial bed or clean.

King Kaninja, the ex-husband of actress Xandy Kamel, has reacted to charges that his casual attitude and infidelity spree ended their two-year marriage.

His recent outburst comes in response to an interview Xandy gave on Delay Show, in which she declared, among other things, that she was the family earner, rented their house, and paid all the expenses.

She also said she had over GH30,000 in her account at the time of her wedding, but that amount had been reduced to barely over GH100 in two years.

Xandy also discussed the trauma she faced in her marriage, which cost her two pregnancies.

“I was still in my wedding gown when the marital problems began.” People began phoning to tell me they were having an affair with my husband. In my marriage, I’ve only felt happy for 5 minutes. We didn’t even have sex. “I think we made love about six times in our one year together,” a depressed Xandy admitted.

Kaninja claims the marriage collapsed because Xandy was more preoccupied with her lesbian lovers rather than their marriage.

He added that his ex-wife portrayed the victim as merely a front to hide her embarrassment.

Kaninja stated that Xandy is unsuitable for marriage since she cannot even arrange her matrimonial bed or clean it.

Even routine household duties, he claimed Xandy’s mother was doing.

Kaninja, who had opted not to respond, stated that he felt compelled to clear his name.

He claims he hasn’t spoken up because he doesn’t want to get involved in the dirt like his ex-wife.

“The reason I don’t pay attention to some of this news is that eagles and pigs aren’t natural enemies.” Pigs adore playing in the mud, therefore there is no need to accompany them there. “When you follow them, you become dirty like them,” he grumbled.

Kaninja stated that if Xandy did not stop firing, he would be forced to unleash all of the bombshells.
