- Japie advised ladies against being slay queens
- Instead, they should pursue education
- He also urged men to stop using money to entice young women
A concerned man from Soshanguve, Pretoria, has urged young women to avoid being "slay queens" because it doesn't last long.
Writing in the Daily Sun, Japie Makhobatlou referred to slay queens as "materialistic young women," Briefly.co.za learned.
He said these ladies relish the attention of rich, older men who have no qualms about spending lavish amounts of money on them.
Japie cautioned slay queens that their lifestyle has an "expiry date:"
After 10 years of slaying, will you still be a queen? Will you still call yourself a queen when you’re unemployed and homeless?
He therefore advised them to pursue education instead, because unlike beauty, it lasts forever. It also gives them a chance to earn a sustainable living.
In addition, Japie argued that the slay queen lifestyle prevents young women from getting married and starting families.
In the same vein, he urged men to stop using their wealth to entice young ladies, concluding that both men and women should be financially independent.
The slay queen phenomenon is reportedly on the rise. Briefly.co.za recently covered the story of Candice and Lelo. They reportedly went on R1m Dubai escapades funded by rich men.
