Popular cross-dresser Bobrisky has tendered a public apology for a ‘disrespectful’ comment on the revered Oba of Benin.
The crossdresser in a recent viral video announced his arrival in Benin and asked the Oba of Benin, Omo N’Oba N’Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Ewuare II, to marry him.
Bobrisky travelled to the Heartbeat of the Nation for an event organised by Ehi Ogbebor, the interior designer.
While in the car with friends conveying him to his destination in Benin, Bobrisky could be heard saying: “The queens are in Benin. We are here to disturb Benin. This one no be ‘shere shere’ o! We are here to disturb Benin.
“Oba of Benin, Bob don enter o! Come and marry me, Oba.”
His comment infuriated many as it since elicited heated reactions among social media users with some issuing several forms of threats.
The media personality has now tendered an apology to the Oba and the entire people of Benin.
Bobrisky appealed to all who found his comment offensive not to take it personally.
“You guys are awesome and wonderful people. Thank you guys for welcoming Bobrisky.
“And guys, I have been seeing some little little gist about what I said about our honourable and wonderful Oba.
“I am sorry, I was just joking. I was just cruising, like just chilling. I never knew you people will take it personal.
“So, this is a video to apologise that I am sorry. Please, you guys should not take it personal. And I love you guys so much. Thank you!”
