Well-known television presenter Deloris Frimpong Manso, professionally known as Delay, has challenged the idea that wearing low-cost, non-branded clothing indicates poverty.

Discussions regarding the importance of wardrobe choices among celebrities have always been a topic of debate.

There is a notion that wearing cheap and unbranded clothes means you are not doing well in life.

Some designers also educate that dressing is not about wearing expensive clothes, but rather finding ones that fit you and make you look good; price or brand should not be the priority.

Delay has entered into such conversations, arguing that by buying unbranded, inexpensive apparel, people are actively choosing to spend their money sensibly, prioritizing meeting family necessities over giving in to societal pressures.

According to the TV presenter, wearing unbranded and cheap clothes doesn’t indicate poverty.

She emphasizes that as humans, we have a duty to protect the welfare of our loved ones, stressing that this responsibility should take precedence over the desire to win the admiration of others.

She posted: “Wearing unbranded and cheap clothes doesn’t mean you are poor. Remember, you have a family to feed, not a community to impress.”

Shared on social media, Delay’s remark has triggered a surge of conversations and reflections among those who frequently get caught up in the materialistic desire for designer labels and expensive clothing.

Many netizens have found her comments inspiring, leading to a change of perspective and a reconsideration of what true riches really are.

This conscious decision displays honesty and a sense of self-worth that transcends the labels we bear, reminding us that our true worth is found in our character, accomplishments, and the positive differences we make.

Delay’s lesson also serves as an exhortation to resist contemporary pressures that often send us messages linking status to expensive clothing and brand names.
