Bobrisky, Nigeria’s self-acclaimed transgender, has gone public with someone he described as “boyfriend” — amid controversies surrounding his sexuality.
The controversial internet personality, who often parades himself as the “male Barbie doll”, took to his Instagram page on Thursday to share a back-view picture of a man whose face was concealed in a hood.
The Snapchat celebrity would also express his gratitude to the man for always showing him “support in times of need.”
“When your boyfriend is lit. Thanks for always supporting me when I needed it. I’m not tagging him here o because of a hungry lion,” he wrote.
From pricking Nigerians with “new-grown” cleavages to flaunting curves and buttocks, Bobrisky — real name Okuneye Idris Olarenwaju —has continued to pull unprecedented stunts in his quest to be a woman — or a transgender.
He once claimed to be Nigeria’s first transgender after having admitted he severed his genitals.
In 2019, his debut movie ‘Bobrisky in Love’ had been investigated on homosexuality suspicions before the police deployed operatives to his birthday venues to prevent a potential breach of public peace.
The National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC) had described Bobrisky as “national disaster” but human rights groups issued a statements to protest allegations of threat and harassment.
