Ghanaian celebrities are famous for carving unique fashion styles and fashion. But how much do you know about their secrets and personal life? Selly Galley is an ex-Big Brother housemate who has gone ahead to become a shining star in the media and entertainment industry. Our Afronista spotlight falls on this pretty damsel. There is more to her than just a pretty face and smooth skin.

Selorm Galley-Fiawoo, popularly known as Selly Galley, is a TV presenter, fashion icon, and actress. She represented Ghana on the eighth season of Big Brother Africaโ€”and managed to stun millions of her fans there. Consequently, she became a household name and a role model to teens and young adults. Although Big Brother Africa was not her first rodeo, her appearance on the show brought her to the national and international spotlight.

Selly Galleyโ€™s Early Life and Career

Selly Galley was born in Accra Ghana on September 25, 1987. She attended Witsands School. She then proceeded to Akosombo International School for the study of general art. Upon the completion of high school, she gained admission to Marshalls University and bagged a diploma in Marketing, Economics, and Business Law.

One of the biggest battles that Selly is fighting at the moment is that of becoming a mother. In her over 5 years of marriage with Praye, she is yet to have a child. Sadly, we live in a judgmental society where people hardly mind their business. There was a time that Selly Galley posted a natural picture of herself without makeup. One of her followers on Instagram left a distasteful comment that read,ย  โ€œbarren woman with horror faceโ€.

The user later apologized but the damage has been done. Perhaps, people should understand that couples can only play their part in trying to make babies. The creator does the rest. Sometimes couples try so hard and still donโ€™t get children. Being perceived as barren is already hard enough and we shouldnโ€™t make it worse for them.

Sellyโ€™s Recent Insta Spat

Over the past few years, she had been asked by the paparazzi about having a child. In an interview, soon after her marriage, she revealed her belief that children are gifts from God. Hence, the need for a plan for adorable beings before they come to light. She also revealed her unwillingness to succumb to societal pressure. While acknowledging that she would want to have kids at some point in life, she made it clear that, at the main time, she wants to focus all her attention on her career. Not only to fulfill her aspirations but to build a bright future for her kids.
