Ghanaian Singer and Songwriter, Lady Nancy Jay, known in the music circles as Lady Jay has revealed that she moved from making music in the United States to making music in her home country, Ghana because of the issue of racism that prevails in the former.
Speaking in an interview with Foster Romanus on the Late Nite Celebrity Show, she stated: “America is so boring that you will have to come to Ghana and enjoy your Kelewele. In America, there is so much racism that the black person will never equal the white person. I went to school in the US and it always felt like the black person was from space”.
She furthered that apart from the issue of racism that moved her to Ghana, she was passionate about putting Ghana on the map through her music.
Lady Jay describes herself as one who is not boxed into a particular genre of music because she likes to do any music she feels like doing.
Lady Jay has few songs such as ‘Lady Jay to the Neck’, ‘Freedom’, ‘For the Dick’, ‘Venus’ among others to her name.
