Popular cross-dresser Bobrisky has tendered a public apology for a ‘disrespectful’ comment to the revered Oba of Benin.
The crossdresser was in Benin recently for an event organised by popular interior designer, Ehi Ogbebor.
While in the car with friends conveying him to his destination in Benin, Bobrisky asked the Oba of Benin, Omo N’Oba N’Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Ewuare II, to marry him.
“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 has since elicited heated reactions among social media users with some issuing several forms of threats.
Seeing the uproar caused by his “distasteful” and “unruly” comment, the social media personality has now tendered an apology to the Oba and entire people of Benin.
Bobrisky appealed to all who found his comment offensive not to take it personally.
In the more recent video, the 30-year-old crossdresser could be heard saying: “Guys, it’s Bobrisky. I’m super excited that I’m in Benin.
“You guys are awesome and wonderful people. Thank you, guys, for welcoming Bobrisky.
“And guys, I have been seeing some little gist about what I said about our honorable and wonderful Oba.
“I am sorry, I was just joking. I was just cruising, like just chilling. I never knew you people would take it personally.
“So, this is a video to apologise that I am sorry. Please, you guys should not take it personally. And I love you guys so much. Thank you!”
