Nigerian transvestite, Bobrisky, has explained why his old practice of Islam would have been a hindrance to his current celebrity status.

The bleaching specialist whose real name is Idris Okuneye said the daily rituals observed in praying as a Muslim would have been too rigorous for him.

He disclosed all these in an interview published by Vanguard News on Saturday, November 26, 2016.

“I am not a practicing Muslim.

“If I have to be a practicing Muslim, I will have to do ablution five times a day and apply make-up after each ablution and that will be very stressful.

“I started going to church as an undergraduate. My room-mate was one of the executives of the Christian Fellowship.

“So I got fascinated and usually joined them to pray. I know prayer works and do that daily.

“My Muslim name is Idris. I don’t really have a Christian name. But I use ‘Olanrewaju’ as cover; by this, people will not know if I am a Christian or a Muslim.”

Luckily for him, his father allowed him the choice of deciding which religion he wants to practice. A rather uncommon privilege in the Nigerian society.

Bobrisky recently made the news round after it was alleged that he beat up a lady who took pictures of him.

This went on to become a police matter according to many reports.
