Protest Rocks Edo As Youths Storm Street Over Bobrisky’s Visit

Over the weekend, the youth of Edo state organized a protest against the visit of the well-known Nigerian transgender and cross-dresser, Bobrisky, who attended an event in the state.
Bobrisky was a special guest at the Patrcia Nightlife party hosted by Feshbliss, prompting numerous youths to take to the streets of Benin, brandishing placards in protest.
The youths who held placards with various inscriptions demanding that the cross-dresser leave their city following a statement he made in January 2022 asking the Oba of Benin, Omo N’Oba N’Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Ewuare II, to “come and marry” him.
In the video, Bobrisky said:
“We are here to disturb Benin. Oba of Benin, Bob has entered. I have entered. Come and marry me.”
The crossdresser came under heavy criticism for calling out their traditional head.
In response to the outrage, Bobrisky issued an apology on his Instagram story, clarifying that his statement was meant as a joke.
He wrote;
“Earlier today, I made a statement about the Oba of Benin and a lot of you didn’t find it funny. 
“I know. I’m so sorry. I’m actually a jovial person and I play a lot. I’m here to apologise to the great Oba of Benin and to the palace of Benin, that I am sorry.”
However, some of the youths are still angry and accusing the crossdresser of insulting their monarch. They marched the streets of Benin with several placards one of which read, “Edo people reject Bobrisky.” 
Although it was reported that the organisers of the event cancelled the show due to the protest, but a viral video captured on Sunday pictured the crossdresser partying at the event.
One of his followers identified as Favour Pricless also claimed she saw the Instagram influencer at a hotel in Benin.
She wrote;
 “Bob fine sha. I saw her yesterday at the hotel; she lodged in Benin. Mummy of lag.”
Bob also posted more videos on his Instagram story on Monday with the caption:
“Thank you Benin, I had fun.”
