BUT WHAT MAKES DELAY A WOMAN OF VALOUR?
1.Delay is a woman of Valour because she started from a humble beginning and has said on countless occasions that she did not have it easy getting to where she is now. She almost gave up on her dream for close to 2 years when she lost her mum in 2003. Even the death of her mum did not stop her from pursuing her dream and that shows how strong she is. She is a typical example of “Started from the bottom Now I’m Here”.
2.She has been accused of so many unpleasant things like being a braggart, lesbian, snobbish and using people for her own benefit. But she has stood tall amongst all these accusations.Our woman of valour.
3.Delay has been involved in a some scandals as well, remember her beef with Mrs Valentina Abrokwah popularly known as Afia Schwarzenegger? Yeah, that was intense. But she hardly spoke about the issue. She chose to be mature and focus on her businesses. That’s what a woman of valour does.
4.She has several businesses to her credit and it takes a strong woman to do that. She owns Smooch (bags and shoes shop), Delay Mackerel and sardine amongst other businesses. The big question is, how does she shuffle between all those businesses? It takes a determined person to do that. Her smooch shop was even robbed some time ago.
She motivates others especially young women and does not shy away from talking about her journey in life. She mostly shares motivational quotes on her social media handles. Also, she was the 91st on the 100 most influential Ghanaians list. What a woman of woman!
She is a Christian, one who does not joke with prayers and her spiritual life. She sometimes makes reference to the Bible on ‘The Delay Show’.
Delay is everything in Proverbs 31:16-18
