Beautiful Ghanaian model and entrepreneur, Hamamat Montia has taken to her Instagram account to share a sad story about a time in her life when she used to be a slay queen.
The Miss Malaika 2006 Queen narrated how she rushed into a marriage at age of 20 because he could provide for her needs.
Taking to her Instagram account Hamamat wrote;
“I used to be a “slay queen” when I was much younger and clueless.
Don’t get me wrong being a slay queen was so much fun I had many amazing experiences & learnt countless important lessons(and not all slay queens “sleep around “ some are just very smart at keeping men on the hunt for long ) but I soon realized it was all a trap and wasn’t the kind of life I wanted to live .
How will you know if you don’t try ? Huh!… and after I became a beauty Queen at 18 , I really just wanted to chill .
Name the country – I have been there
Name the fashion – I wore it
Name the lifestyle – I have tried it
In fact my summer car choices was between a Ferrari & a Rolls Royce but this also taught me a valuable lesson.
As a slay Queen – your most important goal is to catch a “big fish “ one that will take care of all your wants , needs & dreams .
So I caught a big fish 20 but I soon learnt a life changing lesson .
Now I had this big fish and everyone was telling me to marry him and inherit it all – it was hard because I didn’t even know what love was and my instincts just won’t allow me to sleep at night.
I just couldn’t put myself in the box of “African girl marrying white man for money” (because that is what everyone thought at that time ) .
I ended the relationship suddenly when I realized money alone wasn’t my goal in life but How dare you say no to a “big fish” after you went ring shopping together and met the parents and met the friends and met everyone .
So we ended up in court because he wanted something in return- I mean how do you think big fish get Big ? Over 10years and there is still a picture of us on (my) wiki – ?
This phase in my life thought me many valuable lessons.
Lessons that has helped transform my life for the better some of such lessons are –
The power of #money
The power of #intuition &
The power of #white love :
I am not racist
I am not sexist
I am not what you think I am but rather a woman who knows who she is and is not afraid to try”
