By Enanga Chekore. A slay queen is a girl who does not have a wealthy background but appears as if she does. she uses malicious acts to attain cash, drinks expensive alcohol, procures expensive cellphones. But back at home, she’s a chicken chaser.

The stories we hear everyday of how evil and egocentric feminists are all lies. I can’t count how many times the ladies mentioned phrases like “equal opportunities for the betterment of mankind, do on to others what you want them to do to you”, etc. Yes! I am talking about the ladies, adolescent girls and men who attended the preCSW64 and Beijing25 Central African Region Feminist Assembly in Douala on March 2, 2020 in Douala. This meeting was held as a result of the 64th session of the commission on the status of women (CSW64) that is supposed to take place in New York in March 2020. I was amazed at the adolescent girls I saw who already have a passion for…
