She has said on record that the Cocoa Brown series is based on her true-life story. She is a business woman and has several businesses to her credit.


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.

  1. She has had people make misogynistic comments against her on countless occasions. Delay, you are aging, when are you getting married? And have kids? Delay, you need a man in your life. Blah blah blah… But she has never allowed it to get to her. She has proven times without number that she has no time for negativity.
  2. She is 34,almost 35 and looks nothing like that. Her face and body game is so strong (especially the b*oty.lol). She works out to keep her body in shape and eats, lives healthily. Oh, and her fashion sense is on point. http://www.esineymar.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/Delay-Bi-33d3-%F0%9F%91%91-@delayghana-%E2%80%A2-Instagram-photos-and-videos-1.html
  3.  When you watch her Delay show, she comes across as a strong-willed person and one who would stop at nothing until she gets what she wants. It is evident in the questions she asks her guests and how she’s pushes them to answer. Someone might think she intimidates her guests, but I say she knows what she’s about and keep giving bloggers something to write about and that’s a good quality.

  5. In this male dominated world, she can rock shoulders with men. Her businesses have created job employment for so many people. She calls herself the ‘Grand Boss’.
