Tebogo Thobejane is considered a 'slay queen' but she wants people to know that they are not all the same. She says she's using her body to sell products, brands and a lifestyle - not to seek attention from rich men.
At 36, Tebogo Thobejane is exceeding expectations. People thought she'd be 'washed out' by now, but she's still out there, slaying and doing her thing.
Tebogo is a 'slay queen', but she says not all of them are the same and that many of them actually carve out a good life for themselves.
'Slay queens' are usually seen as women who use wealthy men to enjoy a luxurious life, however, Tebogo wants people to be more open-minded about the way they see these ladies.
"Not all slay queens are h**s or online prostitutes as people say. I won't say those kinds don't exist but not all of us fall in that category. Yes, we use our bodies but not to exchange sex(ual favours) for luxurious lifestyles, I use my body to sell products, brands and a lifestyle."
According to TimesLIVE, Tebogo is one of Mzansi's well-known 'slay queens' and that she feels not all ladies with a small waist and big booty should be painted with the same brush - they're not all completely dependent on men.
"I mean, I won't say I'm a saint and I also won't say that I won't willingly date a guy who doesn't offer financial security along with love but as far as my lifestyle is concerned, I can proudly say I foot my own bill."
Tebogo explained that she makes a really good earning from being active on social media and an Instagram model.
"Look, when it comes down to it, there is money to be made from social media. Once you look past all the negative connotations of being an Instagram model, you realise that Instagram makes a lot of money from users and that we shouldn't hesitate to make money off it.
"Once you find your passions and hone them down, you can bring in over R100k a week on that platform."
Briefly.co.za gathered that Tebogo is travelling around SA to talk to girls about the other side of 'slay queens'.
She wants them to know they don't have to be 'typical slay queens' but know all the realities of it and the 'Insta-lifestyle'.
