In a recent interview, media personality, Deloris Frimpong Manso, better known by her stage name Delay, claimed that she had struggled on her own to become famous and reach this point in her illustrious career.
Delay triumphantly declared that no one could rob her of her status and stated that she had to fight for the glory she is presently enjoying.
We are unable to determine whether her assertions are related to what Afia Schwar stated on Sunday in an Instagram post.
“There are people who come and Ghanaians decide to show them all the love and fully support the person. In my case, I didn’t have that kind of love and support. Nobody handed fame over to me. I have become Delay because I’m talented and hardworking.
“From the beginning, I thought people hated me but I’ve come to understand that it was a phase I needed to go through to strengthen me. I fought and I went for it so no one can take it away from me,” Delay said.
She remarked that her fighting spirit has always motivated her to where she is today. She is also known for gaining new followers with her persuading talents.
“I’m a dragon, I’m a fighter. If I take a look at where I started from the industry, like when I came, people said I didn’t have the looks, I wasn’t beautiful. I keep saying that it was poverty that made me look miserable.
“Poverty is not a good thing. Poverty is a killer disease and it is the truth because back then, I was broke, I didn’t have the money to even buy good creams for my skin and clothes to wear so people saw me unattractive.
“They didn’t think I fitted into their standard for beauty. I wasn’t skinny, tall, fair. I didn’t have the looks that people deemed as the standard looks so I struggled in the industry,” she concluded.
