Don’t Joke with Oba: Outrage as Nigeria’s Crossdresser asked the King of Benin to marry Him

There has been a general outrage amongst Nigerians after popular crossdresser, Idris Okuneye, known popularly as ‘Bobrisky’ made a video asking the highly revered Oba of Benin Kingdoms to marry him. 

According to reports, Bobrisky made this comment whilst honoring an invitation to Benin for the burial ceremony of the grandmother of one of Nigeria’s leading interior designers and CEO of Sayaveth Interiors and hotels, Ehizogie Ogbebor. 

In the video which has gone viral, he was excited about being in Benin city as a ‘pretty woman’ and in the process, made a snide remark involving the Oba of Benin. The cross dresser said “I am live in Benin and the Oba of Benin should come and marry me;” a statement which triggered nationwide anger.

Following the outrage, he recorded a subsequent video apologizing for his disrespectful statement. His host, identified as Ehizogie Ogbebor also made a video condemning the statement by the crossdresser with an apology. 

However, the elders and people of the Benin kingdom asked for him to leave their city immediately or face the consequences of his provocative words.
