I started crossdressing as a marketing strategy – Bobrisky

Popular Nigerian crossdresser, Idris Okuneye, aka Bobrisky has disclosed that he started crossdressing as a marketing strategy.

Bobrisky said his journey to his crossdressing started while he was selling unisex clothes during his undergraduate days at the University of Lagos.

Bobrisky, who reconfirmed that he has become transgender, told maverick singer, Charly Boy that he did not know he was going to change his gender.

He said, “About nine years ago, I was at the University of Lagos studying Accounting. I also had a side hustle, I was selling unisex clothes. Most times I try the female wears on myself and I love the outfits.

“From there, I moved to female hairstyles to makeup and more women were patronising my business. So I decided to keep crossdressing since it was lucrative.

“I wasn’t thinking I was going to do it for a very long time. Initially, it was just a marketing strategy but people were complimenting me that I look better as a woman than a man. That’s how I ended up being Bobrisky.”

He said he faced resistance from his parents initially but they eventually allowed him to be himself.
