Olusegun Runsewe, Director General, National Council of Arts and Culture (NCAC), said Saturday that Nigerian transvestite Idris Okuneye, popularly known as Bobrisky, represents a severe danger to Nigerian youth.
Runsewe told Latest Nigeria newspaper in Lagos that if Bobrisky’s activities were not reduced quickly, the effect would be worse than the Ebola outbreak.
He urged that Bobrisky’s activities be reduced to protect young people from being imitated jealously. He urged young Nigerians to stop imitating him, by remaining responsible and good ambassadors of the nation.
“Bobrisky is a national disaster, a shame for the country, it is involved in cultural corruption as a transvestite, and we have to start reducing its activities before it gets out of hand.”
“We will not allow Bobrisky to destroy the future of our youth and unborn Nigerians,” he said.
Runsewe said that when police recently stopped the transvestite’s birthday, it was revealed that he had been training some young Nigerians to tow the same line with him in the Lekki area of Lagos. He said immediately that the crossdresser party stopped, a good number of the boys he was training left him, so it was an achievement.
According to him, Bobrisky’s activities deny the culture and tradition of the nation and could be excused to go to other climates where that culture would be tolerated as a cross-genre. Runsewe urged parents to guide their pupils not to emulate Bobrisky, but to take the celebrities responsible for society.
