Nigerian crossdresser, Okuneye Idris, popularly known as Bobrisky has reportedly left Benin following an outrage he ignited by asking the Oba of Benin, Omo N’Oba N’Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Ewuare II, to “come and marry” him, IGBERETV has learnt.
Bobrisky made the comment in a video he shared to express his excitement at being in Benin for an event by celebrity interior designer, Ehi Ogbebor.
In the video, Bobrisky said:
“We’re here to disturb Benin. Oba of Benin, Bob has entered. I have entered. Come and marry me.”
He wrote on the video;
“if you aren’t fucking billionaire in dis country well you are dulling.”
However, after getting slammed by Benin indigenes for calling out their traditional head, Bobrisky has tendered a public apology.
He shared the apology on his Instagram story, where he noted that he was just joking when he made the comment.
In his apology, Bobrisky said,
“Earlier today, I made a statement about the Oba of Benin and a lot of you didn’t find it funny.
“I know. I’m so sorry. I’m actually a jovial person and I play a lot. I’m here to apologise to the great Oba of Benin and to the palace of Benin, that I am sorry.”
After Bobrisky’s apology, a video was shared online in which a man was heard saying that Bobrisky has been sent out of Benin. He said that Bobrisky took a 12pm flight back to Lagos on Saturday January 8, 2022.
He also reiterated that they have no connection with the crossdresser.
