Nigerian cross-dresser, brand influencer and philanthropist, Idris Okuneye Olanrewaju, a.k.a. Bobrisky clocks 28 today.
So, she took to Instagram to share some stunning and classy photos, to mark her birthday.
But the birthday pictures, which confused some of Bobrisky followers as to if she has completely changed gender, generated thousands of reactions on social media.
Moreover, Bobrisky, by virtue of his existence, introduced into the Nigerian society a new set of ethics and morals.
Above all, many citizens consider these ethics as contrary to the assumed social norm of Nigeria.
However, certain event planners have asked him to give speeches at their occasion.
People have continued to receive Bobrisky with mixed feelings as she has a fair number of fans and critics alike.
As she marks another birthday, below are two times President Muhammadu Buhari’s political appointees have embarrassed Bobrisky:
1. Bashir Ahmed:
President Muhammadu Buhari’s Personal Assistant on New Media, Bashir Ahmed, once came under fire after he announced his withdrawal from a social media conference due to its inclusion of Bobrisky.
The New Media Citizens and Governance Conference, organized by Enough is Enough Nigeria, held in October 2016 in Abuja.
The organizers had slated Bobrisky to speak at a session titled Engagement Unusual: Unconventional Uses of New Media.
As news filtered that Bobrisky would speak at the conference, a Twitter user implored the Bashir Ahmad to withdraw from the conference.
“I couldn’t picture you on the same panel with that idiot Bobrisky. Please don’t attend this conference,” he tweeted to Mr. Ahmad, to which he replied, “Okay, I will do that for you, NVM [never mind].”
Ahmed shortly thereafter released a statement on his Twitter page formally announcing his withdrawal from the conference without giving reasons for doing so.
2. Otunba Olusegun Runsewe:
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.
