Controversial Nigerian cross-dresser, Idris Okuneye better known as Bobrisky has said that his father originally objected to his new lifestyle as a transvestite.
He made this known in a recent chat with media personality, Chude Jideonwo, saying that his mother, who is now late, accepted the new feminine version of himself, but he had to make extra effort to convince his father that it is for their own good.
Speaking on criticisms he receives, the male barbie said; “Yes I was born as a MaIe, I can never be a she but I’m making money than the critics who condemn me. If you like address me as he or she, it doesn’t bother me. Being a woman has paved lots of ways for me, women don’t know how to use their resources as woman…when I was a guy, i didn’t have money, just there hustling, they don’t even want to associate with you but i’m not in for that, i want to be a boss of my own so i chose this path and i’m enjoying it…..”
Speaking further Bobrisky said; “My initial plan was to do it for a small time to make money as a crossdresser but now i’m not ready to stop because it is paying me millions weekly….
I started cross dressing three years ago and i have built my brand in 4 years. I finished from UNILAG in 2016, i was supposed to go for my NYSC but i didn’t cos i wanted to make money…UNILAG prevented me from being Bobrisky cos my course adviser was tough. After i left school, i became free to live as i wanted.
In 2018, I bought a house in Chevron, in 2019 i thought about doing surgery but i was scared and same with 2020 and in 2021, i went for lipo and tummy surgery….”
When asked how his parents handled his new lifestyle, Bobrisky said though his mum is late, she was in full support of his dream.
“My mum before she passed did not judge me, she accepted me for who i am but my dad didn’t…he accepts it for business but not for a lifestyle… After I explained to him that i do it to make money to make them comfortable and live well, he had to accept…”
Shedding light on why he dressed like a Man during his surprise visit to his dad’s birthday in 2020, Bobrisky said “You don’t expect me to glam up early morning to surprise my dad..i was on jalamia….i didn’t want to steal the shine on his birthday cos he deserves the attention.
