Nigerian cross-dresser, Okuneye Idris Olanrewaju popularly known as Bobrisky and often referred to as Male Barbie has finally admitted to being gay.
On Monday, April 24, the Internet celebrity put up an Instagram rant directed at his haters saying “Yes I’m gay. I have over 11 visas in my passport, I live in 5 bedrooms duplex alone in Lekki, well furnished. U can check my snap for enough videos, not with friends. Haters will say is not my house, that I rented it. At least I pay rent, I have access to it whenever I want. I drive a 2012 Benz; I also own a Lexus and a Toyota Camry. Abeg what other achievements can I have at 25 years and more still coming? So continue hating, na u sabi. If na my bleach dey pain u, abeg go beach urs too cos na light skin dey market now.”
This comes several months after Bobrisky had denied being gay.
However, the Nigerian male Barbie later edited the first line of the Instagram post, having it say “Yes I’m gay or straight how is it u guys problem?” Perhaps that came as an afterthought, considering that homosexuality is a crime in Nigeria, attracting up to 14 years imprisonment.
Bobrisky, who has his skin dramatically lightened and often wears women outfits and makeup, came into the limelight via his Instagram and Snapchat accounts where he tells tales of his rich lover whom he simply refers to as bae.
Even though Bobrisky doesn’t reveal the identity of his rich lover, he often insinuated that this bae of his is male, prompting the public to question his sexuality.
