One of the most popular figures on Nigerian social media is Idris ‘Bobrisky’ Okuneye.
Okuneye has developed into a very popular person on Snapchat, known for his cross-dressing and transsexual lifestyle. He constantly speaks of a bae who spoils him, with many believing him to be gay.
In a recent interview with Adesuwa Onyenokwe of Today’s Woman magazine, he however claimed to not be gay. He also expressed his support for Nigeria’s strict homosexual laws.
Bobrisky denies being gay
“I am not gay. No, I am not gay,” he said. “I think it is because of my look. Like imagine, a guy wearing makeup.
“Outside Nigeria like UK, America, they don’t find it new. They feel its normal but in Nigeria they feel you are mad.”
He said of the anti-gay laws: “We are in Nigeria and there is this law which I am in support of that law because I see no reason why your mother will give birth to you and you will say you will not give birth in future. It is not possible now.
“If my mum and dad did not give birth to me, I wouldn’t be this Idris. I am not in support of gay marriage.”
