After reports that Okuneye Idris a.k.a Bobrisky recently died after a car crash, he has come to debunk the rumors.
A particular report read, “BREAKING NEWS
Controversial Nigerian cross dresser and male Barbie aka Bob Risky is Dead.
Speaking to News men at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Dr Markman Zara stated that Bobrisky was rushed to the clinic in the wee hours of yesterday after surviving a fatal accident allegedly on his way to a party. The doctor stated that though he was conscious as at the time of entry in to the clinic, there was nothing they could do as he had lost so much blood.
AIT Correspondent at the clinic stated that celebrities like Tonto Dike and Bobriskys partner Oluwagbenga Abiodun were at the clinic in tears.
May the soul of the departed rest in peace.”
Reacting, Bobrisky simply said whoever is behind the rumor will leave this world before him, and he’ll attend the burial.
His words, “Anybody wishing me dead will die before me. I will slay in all black to your burial.”
Bobrisky is a Nigerian internet personality and philanthropist who is known as a prominent transgender woman in Nigeria, a country with no LGBT rights. She is also known for her presence on the social media app Snapchat.
Born Okuneye Idris Olarenwaju in 1992, Bobrisky completed her secondary school education at King’s College, Lagos. She also attended graduate school at the University of Lagos (UNILAG).
She became recognized by being highly controversial on social media for the ultra conservative Nigerian standards. Bobrisky was able to gather 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 serving 14 years in a penitentiary.
Bobrisky has a fair share of fans and has been asked by certain event planners to give speeches at their events. 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.
