Bobrisky asks Oba of Benin to marry him, then apologises

Popular cross dresser, Idris Okuneye, popularly known as Bobrisky on Saturday stirred the anger of Edo people when he asked their paramount leader to marry him.

The controversial LGBTQ celebrity had travelled to Benin City to attend an event hosted by Ehi Ogbebor.

He then posted a clip on Instagram telling Oba of Benin, Omo N’Oba N’Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Ewuare II, to come and marry him now that he has entered his vicinity.


In an earlier video, Bobrisky had said, “We’re here to disturb Benin. Oba of Benin, Bob has entered. I have entered. Come and marry me.”

However, his joke backfired, as many Edo people criticised him for taking it too far.

In his apology, Bobrisky said, “Earlier today, I made a statement about the Oba of Benin and a lot of you didn’t find it funny.

“I know. I’m so sorry. I’m actually a jovial person and I play a lot. I’m here to apologise to the great Oba of Benin and to the palace of Benin, that I am sorry.”
