Checkout Fake Lifestyles Of Slay Queens

Published

on

To slay, according to the Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary is an informal, old fashioned word especially American and means to have a strong effect on somebody. These days many people in Africa especially in Nigeria and Kenya use the term or slang ‘slay queen’ to describe a woman that likes to show off her luxurious lifestyle even if she lives in the poorest neighbourhood and struggles to stay on her feet.
Presently, the internet is full of ‘slay queen images, the 21st century is the perfect era for slay queens as they can use the instagram, snap chat, twitter, face book etc, to tell the whole would about the expensive things they do not even own. You might be surprised, but this type of behaviour is actually not peculiar to women as slay kings also exist and behave in the same way as slay queens do.
A recent post in the social media actually disclosed the traits of this slay queens and their modus operandi. Most of the time the slay queens are quite two dimensional beings with little or no depth to them. They all look, dress and behave in same ways. This makes it fairly easy to tell them apart from the general population, but not from one another.
According to the post, the following are seven characteristics that can describe a slay queen any where and my time.
Make up and style: your typical slay queen never lives home without make up. She can show up to the corner store in the middle of the night wearing a full face of makeup and most likely a pair of high heels and short tight dresses is what slay queens love most.
However, the fact that slay queens wear makeup all the time does not mean they are good at it. In real life, a slay queen might not even be able to match the colour of neck to the shade of her face. Nevertheless, almost all of them are experts in using retouching applications and soft wear. Their selfies that they post so frequently in the social media are face tuned so hard you will probably never recognize them on the streets. If you somehow manage to catch one of them without any make on, do not be too shocked by the striking difference between what you see and what they post on line.
Expensive lifestyle: one of the most definitive trait of queens of slay that distinguishes them from others is their love for expensive things and luxury. They will go out of their way to snap a picture in or around a flashy car with a bottle of pricely alcohol or in five star hotels.
Despite her love for all things shinny, a typical slay queen cannot afford most of the things she takes pictures with, she usually achieves her cool shots by or her ‘bae’. A queen of slay might be also into an expensive shop must to try something on, take a picture of her self in it and leave.
Love for parties: Almost every slay queen is a party freak. Every weekend or some times even during the week, you can see her at the Fancy bars, clubs and other similar places dancing on her ridiculously high heels, drinking a colourful cocktail by the bar or drunkenly stumbling in or out of a cab. If you are (un) lucky enough, you might even see whole flock of them huddled together with their lips pursed and selfie hands out stretched in search of the best selfie angle and lightening. If a club has resident photographer, it can be certain that they would be in all of the pictures from the nights events.
Social media presence: A slay queen cannot live without her social media. After all how else will the world know about her awesome life if not for instagram snapchat or other social media platforms 95% of slay queens instagram profile is picture of her, mirror selfies, beach photos, club pictures, you name it, every minute of her life has to be documented, so the remaining 5% is photos of food and other random things.
The poses slay queens usually take in their photos are unnatural and uncomfortable as they flatten in their stomachs, curve their legs and push out their chests and behind they thing they look good, but more often than not they look utterly ridiculous.
Language: Even if you cannot see a slay queen approaching, you can hear her from a mile away, they have a weired way of talking, so it is often hard to comprehend what they are saying, their Language is littered with filler words and expletives and even the way they pronounce certain vowels is weired.
Just go, “you know” ‘whatever is one of their favorite words. When slay queens are writing, they use lots of harsh tags and do not pay much attention to their grammar. Nevertheless, some of them have the audacity to correct others in other to seem smart.
Intelect: Now when it comes to smarts, an overwhelming majority of slay queens have little to offer in this department. If you find yourself in a conversation with one of them prepare to be amazed at the ignorance some people can possess.
However, not all of them are stupid some might just be playing dumb to get the attention. Some girls are actually incredibly smart because they are able to get an insame amount of followers on social media and then just live off sponsorship deals and gifts from gullible men.

Published

on

The Paramount ruler of Emohua kingdom in Rivers State,  Ohna (Sir) Sergent Awuse, has called for peaceful celebrations of christmas and new year, as he enjoined the youths to be law abiding and shun violence during the festive period.
The first class traditional ruler made the call last Saturday, while preforming the Ohna Emohua burial rights in respect of late Ohna (Hon) Emmanuel A. Obinna at Mgbuitanwo in Emohua community,  amidst jubilation for a life well lived.
Ohna Awuse, the Olo IV, Nneweli Emohua XIII urged the people of the community to always uphold and showcase the age long culture and tradition of Emohua Clan. He stressed that their culture is their identity and way of life and a community without culture and tradition is like a sheep without Shepherd.
The monarch noted that late Ohna Emmanuel Obinna would be remembered for his role in promoting the ancient culture and tradition of Emohua. He stated that his demise had left a big vaccum in Emohua kingdom, but the legacies he left behind would live after him.
In his vote of thanks,  his successor and acting head of Mgbu Owhor community in Emohua, Chief V.C. Obinna, thanked the Ohna supreme council for the honour they gave to their departed colleague by giving him a befeating burial in line with the culture and tradition of Ohna Emohua, the highest traditional institution in Emohua kingdom. Which the late traditional ruler championed in his life time on earth.
Chief V.C Obinna maintained that apart from being a foremost traditionalist, he was also a devout Christian who contributed immensely to the growth of the Christian faith in Emohua community and beyond.
Also speaking at the well attended event,  the chief mourner, Dr Weli Obinna reiterated that his late father lived an upright life, those he left behind would take solace in God because their father and mentor lived a fulfilled life he came, he saw and he conquered to the glory of God and left the scene at the ripe age of 92.

Rivers Set For Yuletide Celebration Despite Odds

Published

on

As this year’s Christmas and New year celebrations beckon, The Tide investigations have revealed that most of the residents of Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital and its environs are not enthusiastic about the Christmas and new year celebrations. Most of the people interviewed expressed the feelings of solemn and gloomy festive period due to the prevailing economic hardship in the country.
One of the respondents, Mr. Solomon Duru,  a civil servant resident at the D-Line axis of the city, complained of the rising cost of staple foods in the market, such as rice, beans, tomato, yam etc. which were sold at exubitant prices and  had made it extremely difficult to provide two square meals for his family of five, “It is life first before celebration,” he said.
Another respondent who sells garri at Mile One Market, Diobu , Port Harcourt,  Madam Dorathy Duke maintained that garri which used to be the poor man’s food has become the rich man’s food. According to her, a basin of garri that was sold for #3000.00 is now sold for between #7000.00 and #8000.00, while five cups of garri that used to be sold for #200.00 now cost #500.00.
“Even at the prevailing price today, garri has become a scarce commodity even when you succeed in getting it, there are no buyers , there is trouble in the country,  Nigeria has now become Ghana of those days when they ran to Nigeria to take refuge due to their poor economy , but today the reverse is the case, may God help us”,  she said.
A transporter in Abali Park, Mile1, Mr. Sunday Udo, lamented the lack of patronage due to the hike  in transport fares as a result of the unprecendented rise in petrol and other petrolum products. He stressed that even vulcanizers and mechanics are in trouble as patronage from car owners decrease every day due to poor economy.
It was the same woefull story when The Tide visited a supermarket attendant along Aba/ Port Harcourt Express Road who pleaded anonymity. He disclosed that it was no longer business as usuall as most of their customers had disappeared due to the increase in the price of goods. “We record poor sales daily to the extent that the management has decided to reduce the workforce, my brother, it is double wahala for dead body” according to Fela”,  he said.
However,  a mass communication student of the Rivers State University Port Harcourt,  Mr. Abel Dike, noted that Nigerians were used to suffering and smiling, so this year’s Christmas and New Year celebrations would come and go,  this year would not be different despite the sufferings. People would still enjoy themselves even with their last kobo.
“People will still go to catch fun with their loved ones at their favourite relaxation joints,  hangouts, cinemas, amusement parks and night clubs. Residential houses, churches and public places will also wear new looks with Christmas trees, lights and other decorations,  even communities are ready to mark their annual carnivals,  beach parties, cultural and masquerade dances as well as wrestling competitions   and other social activities to mark the festive period,  so I believe all is not lost despite the bad economy,” he said.
Meanwhile,  Pastor Silas Wosa of St. Pauls Anglican Church Diobu noted that Christian faithfulls all over the world would celebrate the Christmas. “Christmas is the biggest celebration and holiday every year,  because it celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Son of God who came to the world to redeem mankind” he stressed.
