Exactly a year ago November 19, 2020, the Winner of Atinka TV’s plus size women reality show ‘Di Asa’ was reportedly kicked out of Emirates Airlines’ plane to Dubai because of her size.

Precious Mensah popularly known as PM, alongside two runner-up’s, Maafia and Gaza, had a package of making a sponsored trip to Dubai as part of the prize for emerging as winners of the 2019 contest but was disallowed to be onboard all because her body size was bigger than a single seat in Emirates Airlines’ flight.”

This attracted mixed reactions of fury, mockery and to some extent, jovial comments from social media users with others arguing that the decision to “kick her out of the plane” was discriminatory adding that the organizers of the event should have bought her two tickets knowing how huge PM was.
