Bobrisky had written: “We’re right here to disturb Benin. Oba of Benin, Bob has entered. I have entered. Come and marry me.” Moments after the submit aired, indigenes of Benin slammed the transvestite on social media for calling out their ordinary head.
Bobrisky has in view issued a public apology on Instagram by way of a video on Saturday morning. He published that he was once solely joking, hence, expected to be pardoned.
Bobrisky is a Nigerian transgender woman and LGBT personality. She is also known for her presence on the social media apps, Snapchat and Instagram.
She became recognized as being highly controversial on social media for not adhering to ultra conservative Nigerian standards. Bobrisky has a huge following on social media. She was able to garner traffic to her Snapchat account when she claimed she had a lover who is assumed to be of masculine gender despite the law in Nigeria stating that same sex relationships is an offence punishable by up to 14 years imprisonment. On July 8, 2021, she revealed a new physical appearance after undergoing surgery to become more feminine.
Bobrisky has been received with mixed feelings as she has a fair number of fans and critics alike. She has been asked by certain event planners to give talks at events. On a notable occasion, however, a Nigerian presidential aide walked out of a premises on sighting Bobrisky within the residence. In 2019, Otunba Olusegun Runsewe, Director General of Nigeria’s National Council for Arts and Culture, called Bobrisky “a national disgrace” and said she would be “dealt with ruthlessly” if caught on the streets.
