Precious Mensah, known within the scope of showbiz as PM has been cautioned by fans to reduce her size drastically because she’s ‘wallowing in dirt.’
That was one of the pieces of advice given to her when she was featured by the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) on their segment, BBC Pidgin. The obese Ghanaian celebrity gave viewers an introspect into her personality and how she ended up being this big.
The Di Asa winner (a reality show designed for plus-sized market women ostensibly to conscientize them about the implication of their weight) recounted how a bus conductor (trotro mate) once embarrassed her by telling her to pay for two seats because of her huge size when boarding a trotro (public transport).
The interview caught on well with viewers across Africa, notably Nigerians who came out in their numbers to advise her on how to win the battle against obesity.

@ Great Precious Nneoma: Biko nne,don’t feel relaxed in dirts. You need to work on yourself, ur good health and life is actually at stake here.
@Jennifer Freedom: Wait o i don’t understand and i really need to get it right. You mean if you enter public transport you were actually expecting to pay for one seat? Na wao please you people should be considerate at times shaa haba.
@Olivia Jacobs:The truth is fat in excess is bad and has a lots of ill related problems. We plus size shaaa dey quick vex if they tell us the truth. But for real I am an advocate for weight loss please. Don’t be skinny but be healthy with those flesh .periodt
@Dela Sikadzi: Her words are saying one thing, but the camera angles are saying something else. I want to say so many things, but I know it is better to keep quiet. She has a point, though. Lots of things are organised based on commercial reasons. That is wrong because it excludes so many people. I am tall. I hate that my leg hits the seat in front of me when I’m travelling by air. Also, my head seems to touch the roof of most cars. But we also need to remember that there are few people like her. I don’t know if you get my point. My weight is 109kg, yet I was told to slim down at the hospital two days ago. So there is health too to consider. Let’s not lie to ourselves even as we try to fight against body shaming. I’ve said my own.
@Salieu Zaal: Beautiful bbe you need to work on your beautiful body to to helped yourself to achieved your dreams of been in international movies you need people along d way and some of dis ppl will not like to risked your life or might even tink u cnt do wat dey want u to do, as you say ppl judge you most of d tim.
