Video shows female mechanic being praised as an example for "slay queens"

A woman whose name has been confirmed by to be Jina, is gaining recognition thanks to social media after a video emerged of her working as a mechanic.

In part, what made the woman go viral is that the uploader, Abubabkar Abdullah Sidiq, pitched the video of a female mechanic as against a growing obsession of some young women to be "slay queens" and "boss chics".

Jina in the video, said that she hailed from Tafo in the Ashanti region. She grew up in a Zongo community; a name reserved for poor inner-cities mostly populated by Muslims.

Sidiq, after getting personal information from the mechanic and seemingly joking about getting married to her, launched into a tirade against the slay queens and the boss chics.

He quipped in Twi: "You are out there calling yourselves boss chics and slay queens doing stupid stuff. You are only looking for fraudulent men to get you a Benz.

Look at this woman. She grew up in a Zongo. She lives in Ghana just like you. She is working with her hand fixing vehicles."

He then turned to Jina the mechanic and said "I hope you can cook. Banku and other meals. You can be a woman at home and still work your craft.

You are educated. You are whom the others should be learning from."

Although the mechanic was being celebrated, it is also not hard to wonder if the praise-singer could have done it without heaping insults on other women.
