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.

HE TALKS MORE ABOUT HIS PERSONAL LIFE BELOW:
Are you not bothered about the kind of reaction you get from people?
I’m not bothered because I believe I âm doing the right thing. And I’m doing what pleases me.
A lot of people believe that you are 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 âm 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 âre 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 dont feel like a girl inside of me, but I have a girly way of thinking and Iâ€™m very caring. My mum got to love me so much before she died because Iâ€™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 traveled 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 dont want to talk about that.
Is bae the one funding your lifestyle?
I dont 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 âm 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 dont need any kind of negativity
to distract me.

Again there was nobody to help me because I am a man. I realized that men do not help their fellow men but women. Then, I decided to start dressing like a lady to deceive men and get money from them but I do not sleep with them. Whenever it gets to that stage, I stylishly excuse myself”
