Popular cross-dresser Bobrisky has tendered a public apology for a ‘disrespectful’ comment on the revered Oba of Benin.

The crossdresser in a recent viral video announced his arrival in Benin and asked the Oba of Benin, Omo N’Oba N’Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Ewuare II, to marry him.

Bobrisky travelled to the Heartbeat of the Nation for an event organised by Ehi Ogbebor, the interior designer.

While in the car with friends conveying him to his destination in Benin, Bobrisky could be heard saying: “The queen’s are in Benin. We are here to disturb Benin. This one no be ‘shere shere’ o! We are here to disturb Benin.

“Oba of Benin, Bob don enter o! Come and marry me, Oba.”

His comment infuriated many as it since elicited heated reactions among social media users with some issuing several forms of threats.

Seeing the uproar caused by his “distasteful” and “unruly” comment, the social media personality has now tendered an apology to the Oba and entire people of Benin.

Bobrisky appealed to all who found his comment offensive not to take it personal.

In the more recent video, the 30-year-old crossdresser could be heard saying: “Guys, it’s Bobrisky. I’m super excited that I’m in Benin.

“You guys are awesome and wonderful people. Thank you guys for welcoming Bobrisky.

“And guys, I have been seeing some little little gist about what I said about our honourable and wonderful Oba.

“I am sorry, I was just joking. I was just cruising, like just chilling. I never knew you people will take it personal.

“So, this is a video to apologise that I am sorry. Please, you guys should not take it personal. And I love you guys so much. Thank you!”
