So who exactly is a slay king? Well, first things first. ‘Slay’ is a slang used to mean to stand out from the crowd. Now, a slay king in campus is a guy who is outstanding in one way or another. Today we dive into the pool of slay kings and what it takes to stand out and be the slayer! Lets get to business!
- Borrowed Accents.
Most slay kings are American wannabes. You shall hear them speaking in an accent that you barely get to hear anything he says. You may wonder if they are Tanzanian at all. They barely speak Kiswahili. If you talk to them in Kiswahili, expect a reply in English with a rather tasteless United Kigdom accent
2. Possess a Large Social Media Following.
Want to find a slay king, just go to Instagram or Facebook or Twitter. They have thousands or even hundreds of thousands of followers who follow their page religiously. Their followers (who most of them are ladies) are quick to comment love messages on their posts whenever they upload. But some even have followers who we doubt walk on the planet earth!
3. Sleek designer outfits
If you come across a guy with a rolex, rocking Gucci or rather Armani from head to toe, my dear sister run for your life! When a new outfit sets foot in the local market, slay kings are usually among the first to grip it. Skinny jeans, ripped jeans, saggy outfits and other funny designs in outfits are not uncommon in them. They can literally leave the house with anything on and call it fashion. Wonder how ripped jeans look good on a guy with skinny legs?

4. “Bling bling” shiny chains!
If you spot a guy looking like a gold chains vender, run for your dear life. In most cases, those gold chains around their necks are usually fake, and they are used to attract unnecessary attention. All they want to do with it is to blind their haters. My brother stop reminding us of the slavery days! Please let us be!
5. Unique Hair Styles
Most slay kings either have their hair in dreadlocks, blow-dried, relaxed, colored or trimmed in different unique ways. Their hair may be the only thing that makes you to identify them without you looking at their face. With most of them claiming to have an Asian descent “shombe shombe” my brother we all know you are a BLACK AFRICAN stop claiming to be a descendant of Dubai!
