Youths in Benin have taken to the streets to protest against popular crossdresser, Bobrisky, expressing their discontent and demanding that he stays away from the state.
The protest stems from an alleged insult directed at the Oba of Benin by Bobrisky in a video last year. The socialite had jokingly asked the Oba of Benin in a video to come and marry him, causing outrage.
Many of the youths of Benin have considered this as an insult to the Benin culture and they have considered him a persona non-grata.
Word on the street is that the crossdresser is coming to the state again for an event and many youths flocked the street to protest and express their unacceptance of this.
They were seen holding placards which conveyed their displeasure in such words as “He is a bad influence; We don’t want him in our state”.
