The Executive Chairman of the Tobinco Group of Companies, Elder Nana Amo Tobbin I has compensated Di Asa Season Three winner, Precious Mensah (PM) with an amount of $2000 to make up for the missed opportunity to travel to Dubai.
It will be recalled that the Di Asa season three promised to send all three winners to Dubai aside their cars, cash prizes and other surprises from the sponsors of the show.
Just when the three winners, PM, Gaza and Maafia were about to set off, PM was denied entry into the plane for no particular reason.
Although Gaza, Maafia and the female host of the show, Ama Gyenfa Ofosu Darkwa went for a holiday in Dubai, PM never made it there despite paying for her ticket and travel expenses.
Before their departure, the Tobinco Boss gave all four some pocket money for shopping, in addition to their major prizes and cash prizes.
At the just ended GTBank Di Asa Season Five Grand Finale, which was held at the Fantasy Dome inside Trade Fair, the Group Corporate Affairs Manager, Mr Albert Kwabena Dwumfour presented the money, which is equivalent to GHC13,000 to PM on behalf of the Tobinco Boss.
Meanwhile, Precious Mensah who was surprised at the gesture expressed her excitement and thanked the Tobinco Boss and Atinka Media Village who are the organisers of Di Asa for the kind gesture.
