On Sunday, Bobrisky, who says she identifies as a woman, was in the news for attacking another famous Instagram influencer named Papaya Ex.

Bobrisky, a guest on ‘With Chude’, was talking about the gender he identifies with.
According to her, when people come to her Instagram to tell her that she can never be her, she thinks nothing of it.
“Maybe I’m not a ‘him’, but I’m making more money than you, that’s a ‘him’. Even though I’m using the genre you’re talking about more than you.”
“That doesn’t worry me either. If we are very close, you can direct me in any way; I don’t see anything there. But if we are not close and if I meet you for the first time, you address me as you want,” he said.
As for why she identifies as a woman, Bobrisky says being a woman has opened up many avenues for her.
“Women don’t know how much power they have. As women they don’t even know how to use their resources. Most people use it, but many women don’t know how to use it.
“I feel that when I was a boy, I had nothing. No money I was there, in the commotion. Nobody wants to talk to you. No one wants to date you. because you have no money. I want to be my own boss, so let me use what I have to get what I want,” he said.
According to her, she took a shot at becoming a transvestite, not knowing if she would succeed or not. He said the plan was to do it for a while and leave it.
“But I’m enjoying it. I’m enjoying it. I don’t even want to stop because I’m enjoying it.
“My initial intention was to make cross-dressing as a small business and make money. But I was enjoying every moment. Millions of naira fall into my account every week; I make so much money,” he added.

Life before Bobrisky
During the programme, the internet personality revealed that he graduated from the University of Lagos, UNILAG in 2016.
He was supposed to go on his National Youth Service later, but decided not to because he wanted to earn more money.
“I don’t have time to start looking for a job. In 2017, I was at home. Before that, I had a shop in Ozone, Yaba. I used to sell unisex clothes, wristwatches and all that as Idris.
“I was in the UNILAG finals. So I was a bit limited. Back from the 200 level I wanted to be Bobrisky, but I had this awesome course advisor at school, and she loved me. It was always, no, no; you will not do this. I have been able to manage my remaining two years of school. So after I left UNILAG, I decided to be the person I wanted to be and earn that money,” he added.
Lekki to Chevron
Bobrisky told the interviewer that he earned some money after leaving school and decided to get a small apartment in Lekki Phase 1 because his friends asked him to.
“They were like my friends; I should come to the island. In 2018, I bought a house in Chevron. When I finished the place I had time for myself.
“In 2019 I started thinking about whether to have the operation or not. I was scared I wasn’t sure. Nothing happened in 2019. I was also scared in 2020. Nothing happened. In 2021, I was ready. So I said, whatever wants to happen, let it happen,” he said.
Bobrisky said that in 2021, she finally gave in to her desire to undergo surgery and liposuction to appear more feminine.
