A couple has insisted “size doesn’t matter” amid criticism their relationship is a ‘marketing stunt’.
Ivorian singer and plus-size model Eudoxie Yao says her relationship with Guinean musician Grand P is going well after online trolls accused them of only being together for ‘commercial reasons’.
Grand P, whose real name is Moussa Sandiana Kaba, was born with progeria, an extremely rare genetic disorder that has affected his physical stature.
She says they are very happy together, adding “the physical doesn’t count”.
Taking to Instagram, where she has nearly 1 million followers, Eudoxie wrote: “We are happy together, and this is the most important thing.
“Thank you, everyone, for your support.
“The physical does not count in a relationship.”
However, in another post last week, Yao appeared to warn her fiance to stop playing the field.
Accompanying a photo of the couple together, she commented: “My fiancee Grand P, you claim you want me as your wife, but it is always you who kisses your fans on the mouth.
“At this rate, my parents may refuse the marriage.
“Pull yourself together because I know you love me.”
