Controversial Nigerian transvestite Idris Okuneye popularly known as Bobrisky has issued a public apology to the Oba of Benin, Omo N’Oba N’Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Ewuare II, after asking him to “come and marry” him.
Specifically, the cross-dresser urged the Oba of Benin to tie the knot with him out of excitement in a video that he published on social media after he arrived in Benin City, Edo State for an event organized by celebrity interior designer, Ehi Ogbebor.
Bobrisky had written:
“We’re here to disturb Benin. Oba of Benin, Bob has entered. I have entered. Come and marry me.”
Moments after the post aired, indigenes of Benin slammed the transvestite on social media for calling out their traditional head.
Bobrisky has since issued a public apology on Instagram via a video on Saturday morning. He revealed that he was only joking, hence, he should be pardoned.
Speaking in his recently released video on Instagram, Bobrisky had this to say:
“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 apologize to the great Oba of Benin and to the palace of Benin, that I am sorry.”
Meanwhile, in other news, Bobrisky is said to have left Benin City in a hurry following the backlash from Edo citizens.
He had left the city back to Lagos in the 12 o’clock flight to avoid being attacked by Beinin indigenes who were irked by his statement.
