VGMA new Artiste of the Year and ambassador for the Youth Employment Agency (YEA) Wendy Shay has apologised to former President Kufuor and Ghanaians over a controversial picture with the former President shared on her social media handles.
The picture shows the former President seemingly staring at the artiste, who was dressed in an outfit some have described as provocative, when ambassadors of the YEA paid him a visit last month.
In a Facebook post, the ‘Obiaa p3 hw3’ hit maker said she is still growing and will be sensitive to her choice of dress for occasions in the future.
“On the 4th of July, 2019,I posted an image of myself and His Excellency Former President John Agyekum Kuffour on my social media timeline. This was after I visited him with my fellow Youth Employment Agency Ambassadors officially. The image I posted went viral on social media for the wrong reasons and I will wish to render an unqualified apology to His Excellency and the board and Management of the Youth Employment Agency.
“I had no intention of bringing his good image into any public disrepute. I would wish to apologize to the general public as well with most of the comments being directed to my outfit. I am a young lady and I am still learning. To err is human, to forgive is divine. I promise to do better next time. Once again, I am sorry”.
Meanwhile, the board chairman of the YEA Sammi Awuku has bemoaned the attention the picture has courted so far.
“Management must ensure that Ambassadors stick to the Highest Level of Professionalism when paying such courtesy calls. Management must also ensure that the Ambassadors use these visits to project the very vision of the Board and Project the new employment opportunities the Agency is offering to the teeming unemployed Youth of our Country.
Those willing to cooperate should be supported and welcomed and those unwilling to go by these standards MUST be shown the exit,” he wrote on facebook.
