The term ‘slay queen’ has been described and explained differently over time. Initially, most women had no issue with the term being used on them and would actually post pictures on social media with the caption ‘slaying’.
Then things changed and the term was used to describe women that are stray or those that every man should avoid, and every woman should strive NOT to become.
So I took the initiative to do a little research and find out who a slay queen really is, as alot of people requested of me after reading an article I did on THE 3 MOST IMPORTANT THINGS TO CONSIDER BEFORE GIVING HIM YOUR ALL
Below are some of the things that make up a slay queen:
1. She wears too much make up.
A slay queen not only looks like her face was literally painted, but she is always in make up as well. According to most guys I’ve spoken to, she also tends to wear very loud colours on her face.
2. A good percentage of what’s on her body is not real or natural.
Her nails..fake! Her hair..fake! Her eyelashes and eyebrows..fake! Her boobs..fake! Her behind..fake! Her…….sigh!
If a person that knew her several years or months ago when she was just her natural self, saw her now, the first question after the introduction..which would be very necessary at this point, would probably be, “what happened to you?!”
3. She tends to want and love expensive things or atleast, imitates.
Let’s start with hair. Yes! A slay queen only wears brazillian weaves or wigs and if they can’t afford human hair, they go for synthetic. All that really matters is that she puts on a weave or wig.
She will only wear designer shoes, perfumes, clothes and carry designer bags. It doesn’t really matter if her sponsor bought them for her from dubai or Europe, or if she got them from a China products shop or from Gikomba or Toi market; it must be, or should atleast, look like a designer.
4. Working to earn her own money is not in her life’s agenda.
Her job is to shop, eat in expensive restaurants, take vacations, go clubbing, visit spas, salons and nail bars and so on, that is if, their sponsors can afford it. Hustling and making her own coin is not even a matter of discussion.
She believes her beauty, enhancing and flaunting it; is all that she requires to get everything she wants.
5. She is sponsored. Like duuuuh…
She is a spender, a big spender..of a certain young/old man’s sweat and hardwork somewhere. I do not know for sure if these men are aware of the fact that they’re being used, or if they’re ok with it; but a slay queen will make very good use of his money.
6. Most slay queens have several ‘sources’ of money I.e. Several guys that cater for different expenses each.
Depending on what class/social status a slay queen is, most have different men that take care of different bills.
For high class slay queens: there’s a man that pays for vacations(and she flies business class by the way), there’s another that caters for shopping(both local and overseas), there’s another one that bought a car, fuels and takes care of any car trouble, there’s another that bought a house or pays rent in a posh area(I understand these category of men have the privilege of getting home cooked meals now and then and they aslo get to sleep over) well..
For middle class or the ‘other class’ : there’s a hair sponsor(you know the guy that buys weaves and wigs and foots the salon bills), there’s another for rent, another for clothes, another one for coffee or lunch at java, another for airtime and data bundles and so on..
7. Facebook, Instagram and snap chat are bae.
A day cannot pass by without a slay queen posting a photo or video on social media. She mostly posts about a place she’s eating(usually an expensive restaurant), clubbing(almost every weekend), expensive drinks, vacations, new designer shoes or clothes that she just got and so on; and in most cases, these things don’t exist..yep!
For a slay queen, a few days cannot pass by without posting a selfie. Some even post daily or after every few hours. Actually, you’re likely never going to see a status update that makes sense on her timeline/social media wall, or one that she actually wrote. It’s either memes, copied texts or shared posts, if it’s not a photo of herself or an item she just got.
8. Most won’t or can’t cook and clean..depending with her upbringing or where she comes from.
Cooking and cleaning is for servants or old school peeps, says the slay queen. And how is ugali made? Ati scrub a sufuria? Are you for real?! Like really?
After all, why should she cook and clean then end up ruining her expensive nails and the soft smooth skin on her hands? Kupika na kufua ni wewe.
9. She does not use public means of transport.
High class slay queens drive and if they have car trouble, they call bae or the taxi guy.
The ‘other class’ only ubers and when things are not so good in the pocket, they use boda boda. There have been several cases of wigs, slay queens and boda boda lately by the way, but..oh well.
10. Slay queens have, for lack of better words, a special kind of pride.
They will force a catwalk even if they can’t do it especially when they’re in heels. Always talking with the help of their hands and fingers pushing their brazillian or fake hair behind as they swing their heads, and move their ‘hair’ away from their faces. They have a way of holding things. They’re very choosy and picky with what and how they eat and what they use in terms of products, drinks etc. I’m sure you get it.
