Entrepreneur and TV Host, Deloris Frimpong Manso, professionally known as Delay has revealed that a lot of people, including industry stakeholders, labelled her unattractive to be on Television.
Whilst addressing the youth at a conference in Accra, she said “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 as 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 added.
“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,” Delay further added.
According to the Delay Show Host; “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”.
She concluded that, “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.”
