Popular cross-dresser, Idris Okuneye, known as Bobrisky, has revealed that he is now a woman, having done irreversible surgeries.

Bobrisky, on his Instagram page, told his followers that he’s not a cross-dresser but he now identifies as a woman.
He said, “I’m not a cross-dresser, I’m a woman. Have done many surgeries that can’t be reversed such as lipo, boobs etc… When the time comes even court self go confirm as (sic) say I’m now a girl.”

This is coming days after the House of Representatives deliberated on a bill seeking to prohibit cross-dressing in Nigeria.

Besides Bobrisky, there are hosts of several cross dressers in Nigeria, with the culture first popularized by Denrele Edu. Also notable among them are like James Chukwueze Obialor, aka James Brown; Daniel Anthony, aka Jay boogie.

The bill ‘A Bill for an Act to Amend Same Sex Marriage (Prohibition) Act 2013 to Prohibit Cross Dressing; and for Related Matters’, sponsored by a member, Muda Lawal Umar, is seeking to prohibit crossdressing in Nigeria.

The bill particularly seeks to amend Section 4 of the Act by inserting a new Sub-clause 3 that reads, “(1) Cross—dressing whether done publicly prohibited

“(2) A person shall be deemed to have committed the offence publicly where it is published or displayed publicly notwithstanding that it was committed privately or in any place that would have ordinarily been described as private.

“Provided that this section of this Act shall not apply to cross dressing in the course of a stage play or in any bona fide public entertainment.”

The bill also seeks to amend Section 5 of the Act by inserting a new Sub-clause 4 that reads, “A person engaged in cross dressing is guilty of an offense and liable to imprisonment for six (6) months or to a fine of five hundred thousand naira (N500,000).

The bill further seeks an amendment to Section 7 of the Act by introducing the word ‘cross dressing’ and defining it as “…the practice of wearing clothes usually worn by a person of the opposite sex.”
