Bobrisky, a Nigerian cross-dresser, has said that contrary to popular belief, he is not gay.
Bobrisky, whose real name is Idris Okuneye, has been extensively reported by the media to be a gay man who is living his gay life openly.
But in an interview with TW magazine, he denied the reports.
“I am not gay…No, I am not gay,” he said, noting that people may have reached that conclusion as a result of his feminine dress sense.
“I think it is because of my look. Like imagine, a guy wearing makeup.
“Outside Nigeria like UK, America, they don’t find it new. They feel its normal but in Nigeria they feel you are mad,” he said.
Bobrisky also expressed support for Nigeria’s anti-homosexuality laws which can see homosexuals jailed up to 14 years.
“We are in Nigeria and there is this law which I am in support of that law because I see no reason why your mother will give birth to you and you will say you will not give birth in future. It is not possible now,” he said.
