Popular television host, Deloris Frimpong Manso aka Delay, has recounted her past life.

Speaking at a conference in Accra, she recalled her struggle to buy good creams for her skin.

She tagged poverty as a killer disease.

“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 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.

“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 stated.

The media personality asserted that her life changed because of her talent and hard work.

She also sees herself as a fighter.

“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.

“From 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,” Delay posited.
