A bill to prohibit cross-dressing in Nigeria was recently introduced by Umar Muda, a member of the House of Representatives.
If passed into law, cross-dressing will become an offence in the country with the exemption of those using it for entertainment. Offenders will be liable to be jailed for six months.
This proposed bill, if passed into law, would threaten the likes of the most popular Nigerian cross-dressers, Okuneye Idris Olanrewaju, aka Bobrisky, who is an LGBT personality, likewise James Chukwueze Obialor, alias James Brown and Adenrele Oluwafemi Edun, popularly known as Denrele.
Reacting to this, Bobrisky openly declared that he is not a crossdresser, but a complete woman. He said that he has undergone multiple surgeries to change his sex and those surgeries can’t be reversed
He boasted that even the court will agree with him that he is a girl because has all the attributes of a female.
He said, “I’m not a cross-dresser, I’m a woman. I have done many surgeries that can’t be reversed such as lipo, boobs, etc.
When the time comes, even the court self go confirm am say I’m now a girl.
I still have many upcoming surgeries to be done. Na who be crossdresser go they fear. I have all my doctor’s reports on all my surgeries”.
