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. You can spot her from a distance by her obnoxious and heavy rolling accent characterized by flat pronunciations of the letter “e”. The Urban Dictionary says “Dating a Cameroonian slay queen; the story of brother Mboe” is a piece that explains the frustration of an African boy who feels deceived by a girl he met and wanted to have a relationship with. Love relationships in Cameroon at times start with the usual chatting as explained in “First Chattere-The first boy to ask me for a love Relationship” We are publishing this story because some African men have complained EdukesInk doesn’t write about male frustration but focuses on girls. Since Edukesink is here…

Though it’s common with almost every African girl in her puberty stage, few can talk about their First “Chattere”-First boy to ask them for a love relationship. Many of our readers have asked to read about our experience of a “chattere.” This story of a first chattere may not apply to all the girls, but, most of them had a similar experience to this. Mind you, most of us African girls could not share these experiences with our mothers because we were shy and had lots of stereotypes. As usual, Eduke’s Ink gives its readers what they demand. Enjoy this beautiful piece. It seeks to inform, educate, and entertain our readers of the stories we have around us.

From what I can recall, the first person to buy a tv set in my village was Pa Mejame. Back then in the 90s and early 2000s, having a television set in my village, Babubock meant only one thing; you are a rich person. I can’t count how many times my siblings and myself knelt to beg my father to buy us a tv after seeing it in our friend’s house. He kept on saying there was no money. Who brought the first tv to my village? That was after this “Rich Man”, Pa Mejame Gabriel came in with a set of big drums (speakers) and a box that got a mirror at the front (television). There was another amongst the set that made a lot of noise and was always kept behind the house (generator). The noise of this one always called our attention that he was about to…

I visited Yaounde last August and a pickpocket made away with my money unpunished. He pulled it from my hand like he was a shareholder in my company who hasn’t had his dividends for years. I have been hearing about pick pockets in big cities like Yaounde but never had an encounter with them. I knew I was untouchable, “I be ‘K’ girl nor”. Popular opinion holds it that people who have lived in Kumba, Mutengene and Douala are hardly robbed. My case this time was different. I finally met my match. This was how it happened That evening after The Scoop Media Award, we sat at a snack bar at carrefour Obili, the neighbourhood in Yaounde habouring the highest number of English speaking Cameroonians. I left my friends to get some steaks outside. I met these two guys who were roasting ‘cow meat soya’. I chose the quantity I…
