Bobrisky’s real name is Okuneye Idris Olanrewaju. He was born in the year 1992 at Ebute metta. He attended king’s college in Lagos state, one of the most prestigious schools in the country. He studied accounting and graduated from the University of Lagos, (UNILAG).
Bobrisky has a very rich Muslim background, his parents are devoted Muslims who never jokes with their praying hours(5 times in a day). Unlike his parent, Bobrisky chose to be a Christian, citing stress as his reason for neglecting his parent’s religion. Although, we can’t judge how intimate he is with religion as we couldn’t get the name of the church he attends because he kept that from the media.
How he became popular
It was acknowledged that Bobrisky in 2016 used the social media platform to attract the public to himself by uploading a very controversial statement on his social media accounts (Snap chat and Twitter). He publicly opened
the secret behind his marital status and life by showing the image of the man whom he called his boyfriend.
This action alone drews more than a million comments. 80% of these comments were critics while 10% neither criticize nor applauded him. The remaining 10% praised him for his bravery. Some praised him for the courage he possessed to have publicized that kind of information despite knowing that Nigeria’s constitution doesn’t support his action(gay marriage).
As we all know according to the Nigerian constitution, anyone who engages in gay marriage will be sentenced to 14years imprisonment. As cited on Wikipedia, there was also a time Bobrisky was the most searched celebrity on Google from December to December, 2016.
There are many controversial celebrities that believe in cross-dressing, which is the act of putting on costumes, dress and other attires that belongs to an opposite sex or gender. Denrele, Charly boy are just some few examples but Bobrisky took the cross-dressing trend to another level which he used to raise controversies and popularity to himself.
As said earlier, Bobrisky is one of those names that always make social media go ‘crazy’ and ‘unsettle’ due to his ever controversial updates of posts, pictures, videos and messages. Early last year, Bobrisky released another controversial statement made on his Snap chat account saying he was more beautiful than 75% of Nigerian
The status update didn’t go down well with Nigeria ladies as they therefore hit back at him, calling him names and also made fun of the lifestyle he chose to live. Also on a notable occasion, a Nigerian presidential aide for reasons best known to him, walked out on sight of Bobrisky at the residence.
