Popular crossdresser and Instagram celebrity, Idris Okuneye better known as Bobrisky, has thanked fellow social media star, Mompha, for supporting him with time, advice and money.
The 27-year-old expressed his appreciation on Tuesday when he shared a birthday message to Mompha, whose real name is Ismail Mustapha, on Instagram.
“Still celebrating my boo on his birthday @mompha thanks for supporting me with everything.. money, time and ur advice…,” he wrote on Instagram.
In other news, Bisi Alimi has said it is an “act of violence” to misgender Bobrisky.
Bisi and Bobrisky are not exactly fans of each other. They have been known to drag each other on multiple occasions. However, Bisi rose to Bobrisky’s defence after some Nigerians mocked him for wearing male clothes to his father’s birthday.
Reacting to the photos Bobrisky took at the birthday party, a number Nigerian web users said he can pretend to be a woman but he’ll always be a man.
Dear Nigeria LGB friends,
Lets talk about Bobrisky and the unintended consequences of misgendering them in our anger.
As many of you will know, I am not their number 1 fan, but I respect them.
I feel there is no template to be a role model and there is posterity that will judge all of us.
However, using a gender pronoun they have come out to say they dont use for themself is an act of violence.
Nigeria is still one of the most dangerous place to be a Trans person and while we may not like the narrative they are showing to Nigerians….
