It is only money that brings happiness – Dulcie Boateng


Popular Snapchat star Dulcie Boateng also known as the Queen of Snapchat has disclosed the circumstances that led to the divorce of her parents.

Keeping the story on the surface Dulcie mentioned that her father who hailed from Brong Ahafo and her Mother who came from Aburi had issues that eventually led to their divorce but she never went into details about the matter.

“They divorced when I made money because I moved my mother out of the house,” Dulcie told Deloris Frimpong Manso on The Delay Show, aired on March 9, 2024.

Perhaps it was always going to be political as the men fancied the father and the women to their mother, Dulcie stated that as she gained her financial independence she moved to her place of birth Asylum Down to Agbogba, both suburbs of Accra, then eventually she joined her

“I rented, my mum was coming in to check on us [myself and my little brother] at Agbogba,” Dulcie said. “My mum and my dad were having issues… When I returned from Singapore, she came to me and never went back to my father at Asylum Down.

From death comes life and so was the story of Dulcie Boateng who upon the demise of her sister eventually started making money in 2017

“My sister died and I was so depressed, I was broken. I wanted to get out of the house. I wanted to do something so that I wouldn’t be bored; just to take my mind off a bit,” she said.

“I told my brother I wanted to sell. It was a coping mechanism; I didn’t start to sell for money, I started to sell to get my mind off my sister. Anything I laid my hands on, I sold.

“It wasn’t a breakthrough… my first ten thousand cedis… I hadn’t seen cash up to two thousand cedis before. I got my first ten thousand cedis from Snapchat from the sunglasses, bags, shoes and tops I was selling,” Dulcie added.

Now an independent woman, Dulcie, who has experienced both hardship and joy, believes that without money, happiness is merely a facade.

“Poverty to me was being unable to afford basic things that you desire. Riches is happiness in wealth. If you have the money and you’re not happy, I don’t think it’s rich,” she said.

“After everything I’ve experienced, the kind of things I like cost money, so, I don’t know if that [happiness without money] is possible right now. [Without money] I don’t think I’ll be as happy as I am now. But I know how to be content…” she added.
