Diminutive musician Grand P has revealed that he plans to run for president of his home country Guinea and that his plus-size model fiancee Eudoxie Yao is running his campaign.
Grand P, real name Moussa Sandiana Kaba, was born with progeria, an extremely rare genetic disorder that has affected his physical stature.
The singer last month became engaged to Ivorian plus-size model Eudoxie Yao.
Following the announcement the couple hit back at vicious internet trolls who said their relationship is a “marketing stunt” by defiantly clapping back that “size doesn’t matter”.
And now the musician and producer has revealed on Facebook: “I declare my candidacy for the 2020 presidential election in Guinea. May God bless Guinea.”
Grand P is reportedly forming his political party called Amour Consideration et Unite (ACU) to contest the presidential election on October 18.
His fiancée Yao said on Facebook: “I will be in Guinea with my (future) husband Grand P, the next president of Guinea. I will run his campaign.”
According to Culture Ebene, it has been a great year for Grand P, who announced in May that he had been contacted by a large American production company about two films to be shot between the Guinean capital Conakry and Los Angeles in the US.
Yao also had political ambitions of her own in her native Ivory Coast, however, her candidacy was rejected.
On Instagram, she said: “Full support for my husband Grand P, the future president of the Republic of Guinea.
“My candidacy for the presidential election of Cote d’Ivoire has been rejected, but I do not despair. See you in 2025 for my candidacy.
“Even if I am not President of Cote d’Ivoire, I can be the First Lady of Guinea. I believe in it.”
A few days ago, Alpha Conde, the current president of Guinea, confirmed his candidacy for a third term, meaning he will probably face Grand P in the election next month.
Meanwhile, Grand P is expected to marry Yao, dubbed the “Ivorian Kim Kardashian”, in January next year.
But in another recent post, Yao appeared to warn her fiancé 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.”
