Slay queen is a term Kenyans have embraced just like lamba lolo and rolled with it.
The meaning of a slay queen being a woman who wants to choke everyone else with how beautiful and cool they are. Social media is the platform they express themselves. These girls party hard on men’s money and have their make up intact all the time.
This is the image they try and create for people to believe. One thing is most of them live a fake life. Behind closed doors and away from the camera’s they are completely different people.
If you are a fan of Eric Omondi you must have seen the video he did on how slay queens act all classy in front of people but when they are alone, they are a completely different person.
The one common characteristic they all present is that they love taking pictures. Most of them suffer from a disease called ‘Selfitis’. This is a genuine mental condition and people who feel compelled to continually post pictures of themselves on social media may need help, psychologists have warned.
According to a story in The Telegraph, there are actually levels of this strange psychological disease.
Borderline – Taking photos of one’s self at least three times a day but not posting them on social media.
Acute – Taking photos of one’s self at least three times a day and posting each one on social media
Chronic – Uncontrollable urge to take photos of one’s self round the clock and posting the photos on social media more than six times a day.
As crazy as this seems, it’s a disease that actually needs medical attention. The rate is rising especially because people- mostly women- are in competition with one another on social media.
This is where slay queens get the urge to keep posting and fake a life they do not have. We joke about it when people post the memes on social media but this is an actual problem.
On a lighter note though, here is a video of a slay queen being herself behind the closed doors:
