There is competition between me and bae over who is more beautiful – Bobrisky

Nigerian Barbie and Internet sensation, Idris Ogunneye, aka Bobrisky, talks about his life, business and the controversies surrounding him in recent interview.

Who is Bobrisky?

My real name is Idris Olanrewaju Ogunneye and I am from Ijebu-Igbo, Ogun State. I have a bachelor’s degree in Accounting from the University of Lagos. When I was in part three at the university, I opened a boutique in Ikeja.  It was called Bob, which is an abridged version of the nickname I was given when I was a child. Back then, I was fondly referred to as Bobo.  I added ‘risky’ to the name and that is how I arrived at Bobrisky, and I believe the name suits me.

What religion do you practise?

Idris is my Muslim name but I am not a practising Muslim.

Did you have a privileged upbringing?
I come from an average family. My dad is alive and he’s doing fine. I was born in Ebute-Metta , Lagos and  I was raised in Lagos. My mum died in 2008. My dad is a retired transporter and he has drivers that work for him because he is aged. He  is a polygamist and  is married to three women. I am the youngest child in my  family.
How did you get the funds to start a business while you were still an undergraduate?
When I was at the university,  I worked part- time. Because I love to dance, I used to teach choreography and I also attended dance events. So I made money from dancing while I was in school. Also , because I have a great sense of fashion, my friends at the university  admired my outfits and usually requested that I get same for them. I would double the cost and resell to them.  As time went on, I was able to raise the capital to start my business.
Did you also wear make-up when you were an undergraduate?
While I was in school, I wore  little make-up. If you did not come close to me, you would rarely know I applied make-up on my face.
Why do you like to wear  make-up?
I developed interest in make-up because I love fashion. I have a love for feminine fashion. I felt there was a need for me to look feminine to attract more clients and  create awareness for my brand. That is why I wear make-up and false nails. In order to comply with the demands of my customers,   I opened  another shop where I sell make-up.
Back in school, did people react strangely to you because you wore make-up?
Like I said earlier, I did not wear heavy make-up then.  However, my dressing was of the highest quality. I won the award for the Best Dressed Male in my faculty and  the Best Dressed Male in the University of Lagos. I first got  popular on campus.
Are you not bothered about the kind of reaction you get from people?
I’m not bothered because I believe I’m doing the right thing. I’m myself and I’m doing what pleases me.
A lot of people believe that you’re more feminine than masculine? 
That is their opinion. I know the reason why I’m Bobrisky. I already told you the reason why I do all that I do now and why I do them. I let people say whatever they feel like saying about me. I’m myself and different opinions are welcome.
What do your parents think about the way you live your life?
My father knows who I am and he is not bothered. One day he said to me, “You’re getting older and you’re over 18, it is up to you to decide if this is  the right or wrong  path to life.”
Before your mum died, did she object to your lifestyle?
When my mum noticed my feminine side, she used to  beat me. At some point ,  she hired  some hoodlums to manhandle me  because she felt I was bringing shame to the family. Later, she let me be because she noticed the beating  did not yield any result.
Do you feel like a girl?
I actually don’t feel like a girl inside of me, but I have a girly way of thinking and I’m very caring. My mum got to love me so much before she died because I’m hard-working. I cooked for her when she was alive, I cleaned  her shoes and  picked her outfits. Before she died, she stopped bothering about Bobrisky.
Why did you choose to alter your complexion?
A few years ago, I travelled to Dubai to shop. I got a particular cream from Dubai to tone my complexion  to caramel or fine chocolate. After using the cream, some areas on my body looked lighter than the rest,  so I decided to brighten up my entire skin. I noticed the lightening cream worked for me, so I started to sell to people. The cream is quite expensive but it gives you an even tone.
Do you fund your  lavish lifestyle solely from your business?
That is a personal question. I don’t want to talk about that.
Is  “bae” the one funding your lifestyle?
I don’t want to talk about “bae.”
How rich are you?
I am rich but not as rich as people think. Presently I am building a house at Ikate, Lagos.
Are you gay?
Because I wear make-up does not mean I am gay. In fact, there is no law that can prevent me from wearing make-up. Interestingly, I apply the make-up myself  and I do it well and better than most women.
But you dress feminine?
Even if I dress and talk like a woman, does that mean that I am gay?
Have you ever been in a gay relationship?
None that I know of.
Do you have a girlfriend?
I have a girlfriend that I’m in a serious relationship with. I keep her  away from the media for personal reasons.
Is her family comfortable with you?
I have yet to meet with her  parents but I have met with  two of her older sisters. I have explained every area of my personality to them because they wanted to be clear on certain areas. I have a plan and I don’t need  any kind of negativity to distract me.
Have you ever being threatened by those who find your  lifestyle offensive?
Why are they offended? Nobody should feel sorry for me because I am living my life and not theirs. Every now and then, people threaten to harm me. Some even come on social media to threaten me. Let’s move on to the next question. It is not an issue.
Where do you see yourself in the next  five years?
Bobrisky is going to be as rich as  Dangote. I want to expand my business. I would love to have my own manufacturing company. Also, I would love to have a good wife and  good children.
How did Bobrisky become an Internet sensation overnight?
I posted videos of me dancing on Snapchat. A lot of people saw the videos  and then people began to follow me on Snapchat so they can watch my videos.
Do homosexuals  approach  you because of the way you look?
The same way I have females  who admire me is the same way guys admire me. I just laugh it off and become friends with all of them. I’m humble and calm. I don’t want to offend anyone so they do not gang-up against me. I let them know that I am not  gay but I keep my friendship with them.
How did you develop the courage to do the things you do  despite what people think and say about you?
I realised you can only live once and if this is the way I have chosen to live my life, so be it. I have watched  my close friends  die and I have witnessed their interment. I was there when my mother was  buried,  so I don’t take life too seriously. I don’t dictate how other people live so no one should bother about how I choose to live my life.    A day is coming when you will die and the troubles will be gone. I’m myself and I take life easy. I don’t worry about a lot of things. I live a simple life and leave the rest to God.
Has being Bobrisky opened doors for you?
It has opened doors for me. I have done adverts for some companies. They like my personality, so they like to work with me.
If you’re offered a sex-change operation, will you accept the offer?
No, I won’ because I am who I am. I’m grateful for what God has done with my life. I don’t like the idea of adding some extra body parts or replacing the ones God gave me. I have nothing against homosexuals or transgenders. I am not going to judge them because I don’t like to be judged.
At what age did you start to wear make-up and dress feminine?
I started wearing make-up and wigs as a 12-year-old. By the time I turned 15, my mum got used to me being feminine. I have always lived a simple life and I have this girly attitude. I don’t like trouble and I’m also reserved.
What qualities do you look for in a wife?
My wife has to be extra beautiful because I am also beautiful. Also she must be fashionable because I love fashion. In fact, there has to be a competition between my wife and me on who is finer! Lastly, she has to be caring and loving.
How would you describe your fashion sense?
I have a unisex style. I wear male and female clothing. I am okay with whatever catches my eye and I do not care what people say or think.
How do you unwind?
I love to listen to calm music and I like to dance.

“How my husband raped my best friend” – Woman tells shocking story

An angry woman has told the shocking story of how her husband was found out to have r*ped her own best friend in his home.

The woman, identified as Rukayat, told the story in a letter she sent to Vanguard.

Below is how she told the story:

“I was fresh out of the university when I found myself pregnant at age 22. I didn’t want to get married, but my boyfriend then was 30 years old and persuaded me we should get married for the child’s sake.

“The marriage turned out to be a nightmare as he became controlling and violent. I endured his abuse for 15 years and with three children, I finally found the courage to leave him – thanks to my best friend’s encouragement.

“I was to finally go to the house to collect the rest of my things and my friend agreed to go with me for moral support. Unfortunately, she arrived before I got there. My husband was in, in spite of his telling me he wouldn’t be around.

“He invited my friend in to wait for me and attacked her almost immediately, raping her in the process. When I eventually turned up, we both went to the police and got him arrested. Later, relatives and friends convinced us to drop the charges because of the children.

“My friend never spoke to me again and as soon as she could, she got transferred to another state. If I’d left my ex sooner, my friend might never have gone through the nasty experience of being violated. I blame myself for the trauma she went through.”

Rukayat got a reply after her story was read. Below is the reply:

“Dear Rukayat,

“I’m sorry for what happened to your best friend and it is sad you were unable to be reconciled before she relocated.

“Please know that what happened to her was not your doing. You are a victim just as she was and you need support in realising this.

“You did the best you could by reporting the incident. You’ve lost your best friend as well as your marriage.

“You need counselling to get over your losses and make the most of your life as the single parent you now are.”

“I’m having s*x with my mother-in-law and it’s amazing” – Man confesses

I’m having an incredible and explosive s*xual affair with my mum-in-law, and the s*x is so amazing and I can’t stop…man shares the story online.

A young man has written to a popular s*x and relationship therapist, Deidre, who is also a columnist for The Sun UK newspaper about his addiction to s*xual intercourse with his mother-in-law after an explosive bonking one afternoon which got him hooked to her honey pot.

Below is his story;

**************************************************

Dear Deidre,

I’m having a secret affair with my mother-in-law. She is almost twice my age and we have fabulous s*x.

I got married three years ago. I’m 26 and my wife is a gorgeous Italian girl. She’s 25. When I first went to her house I couldn’t believe her mum’s age. She is 44.

My then wife-to-be told me, proudly, that all her boyfriends had fancied her mum. It seemed a strange thing to say.

That’s the odd thing about marrying someone from another culture — there’s so much that’s different and strange that I didn’t know what to believe. Her mum owns a restaurant.

It’s a small, classy place and my mother-in-law took it on when my wife’s dad passed away. She’s a very smart woman who knows how to run a good business and still have time off to have fun.

My wife covers for her in the restaurant alternate weekends and that’s when her mother is free to see me.

The first time it happened she came to our house where I was alone with our two-year-old son. She said she was checking that I was behaving myself while my wife was away.

I poured her a drink and she pulled up her skirt while she sat next to me. I caught sight of stockings, all lacy and black. That’s something my wife knows I just can’t resist.

We had a couple more drinks then I couldn’t hold back anymore. We had s*x on the sofa while my son slept upstairs.

This is now quite a regular thing. We’ve progressed from suspenders and stockings to bondage and real kinky stuff like I’ve only ever dreamed of before.

I’ve never had this kind of s*x with anyone else and I know I won’t get it again. The s*x is up there in a league of its own but then so is the guilt.

I know this must stop but my willpower is weak.

*************************************************************

Below is the reply he got from the relationship expert;

Are you asking for advice or boasting about what you have been up to?

You know what to do.

You must tell your mother-in-law that it’s all been amazing but you must stop now or your son and your wife, the two people you should love the most, will get desperately hurt.

Take control of your life and please don’t let your lust get the better of you.

Maybe you’re fooling yourself that your wife wouldn’t mind.

I bet that she would.

How is your s*x life together?

Show her what you like but also focus on her.

Let go of other distractions and start giving your marriage the attention and love it deserves.

My e-leaflet How To Thrill a Woman in Bed can help.

Above all, think of yor son. Do your utmost to give him the calm loving home he deserves.
