Nigerian crossdresser Idris Okuneye, popularly known as Bobrisky, has bragged about being fully responsible for fellow crossdresser James Brown’s fame.

In an Instagram live section with media personality Daddy Freeze, the controversial crossdresser gave credit to himself for his colleague’s fame.

“This James Brown they are shouting James Brown! James Brown!, I made James Brown, I made James Brown who he is today, I will say it anywhere,” Bobrisky boasted.

“I posted James Brown on my page, when everybody called him names, I was the person that asked him to come to my house and I gave him money,” Bobrisky added.

Although there has always been disagreement between the duo, this recent online brawl started after James Brown’s migration to the UK to further his education, igniting comparison to his one-time mentor, Bobrisky.

The public has dragged Bobrisky for accomplishing lesser than his former mentee despite his long tenure of being in the spotlight.

Following the comparison, Bobrisky took to social media to remind the public of his “BSC in accounting from UNILAG 2015/2016”.

22-year-old crossdresser James Brown, broke into fame in 2018 after his “they didn’t caught me” slang went viral during his arrest at an alleged gay party in Lagos.
