If there is any modern slang that hurts many ladies to be referred to, then I guess it’s the word, slay queen.
Slay Queen defined by the urban dictionary as a young and naive girls who apparently do not date broke men. They spend hours on Snapchat and Instagram showing off things they don’t even own or a beautiful but dumb young woman who chases after wealthy men.
By the mention of it, many women, especially the youths gets upset but that is not the case of actress and television personality, Gloria Sarfo, as she has stated emphatically that she’s cool with it when people label her as a slay queen claiming to be an actress.
She added that, but she does not like how their lifestyles have shaped the Ghana Movie Industry currently.
Interacting with NEWS-ONE on Saturday, Gloria Sarfo said, “I have had so many instances where I was compared to them, but I don’t get angry. I don’t get offended because they are equally doing what they feel is good for them and I can’t discriminate,”
Ms. Sarfo went on to explain why she’s not happy when people try to draw a thin line between slay queen and the movie industry.
Her reason remains that, the slay queen tag is bad on the industry, and it’s time they up their game.
“But then again I can only caution that some of us were here when they came. People were there before us and so we didn’t meet the industry this way. They also didn’t meet us the way they are portraying the industry lately. That wasn’t how they met us,”
Gloria Sarfo had her breakthrough in the movie industry, starring as Nana Ama in popular Akan TV series “Efie Wura”.
She has since featured in over twenty movies and is arguably one of Ghana’s finest actresses.
Aside acting, Gloria Sarfo is a broadcaster with Angel Broadcasting Network, she hosts “Maho Bala”, a popular Indian soap opera on Angel TV
She seized the opportunity to advise uprising actors to focus on building a strong brand, she said they should work on the job.
“They came to meet the acting industry. A lot of us spend years to build our brands through training and I will stress that they express what they came to meet,”
