Ghanaian fashion icon and entrepreneur, Nana Akua Addo, has stated in an interview that she feels honoured anytime people refer to her as a “slay queen”.
While speaking in an interview with Zionfelix, Nana Akua Addo maintained that the word slay queen was not derogatory to her but rather came with her line of work.
She however added that a new sort of negative connotation had come to be attached to the term which many women might find offensive but to her, it was okay to be tagged with such a name.
Nana Akua Addo added that people had to right to do whatever made them feel comfortable and also people lived according to their own means so tagging them with some names was not the way to go.

She revealed in the interview that whatever dress she decided to step out with had its own cultural meaning and historic background.
The fashion icon said due to her kind of outfits, she has graced a number of red carpets that had international media like CNN and BBC in attendance and they ended up featuring her on their websites.
She said due to this, she herself has attracted some mileage to her brand, industry and Ghana as a whole.
Nana Akua Addo also mentioned that many stylists and brands pay her to wear their outfits to occasions and this happens almost every time.
