Bobrisky has expressed a preference for being addressed as “her and she” rather than “him or he.” Many people believe Bobrisky has undergone surgery to transform into a woman, despite the fact that he has stated in multiple interviews that he has no desire to physically transform into a woman. Bobrisky, he says, is a “character,” not a girl.
He began to look different from his school days by dressing differently before becoming a social media sensation and celebrity. He’s invested in the character. Bobrisky was photographed in May 2019 wearing a faux silicone breastplate, which is popular among drag queens.

Another was when Bobrisky threw a birthday party that didn’t go as planned. His birthday was celebrated in Pearl Gardens in Lagos State, Nigeria.

He chose to leave the country after the event was shut down by the police.
She Claims That Her Mother Is Dead.
Bobrisky took to Instagram on Mother’s Day to honor her late mother. When it was revealed that her mother was still alive and well, the internet personality found herself in even deeper trouble.

Bobrisky vs. Daddy Freeze

The incident started when the Nigerian-Romanian broadcaster shared a video of himself playing with his son on social media, where he is also known for preaching and mocking God’s men. In the video, his son requests that he not wear his mother’s shoes, to which Freeze replies that he will not because he is not Bobrisky.
Bobrisky quickly rebuked Freeze, calling him a “dumb he-goat” who is always trying so hard to get her attention. Bobrisky also stated that she had no idea Freeze existed. Freeze referred to Bobrisky as a used tampon, a bleached brain, and an inanimate object.
Bobrisky vs. Sabinus (Mr. Funny)
Sabinus was threatened with arrest by the controversial Nigerian crossdresser after he called her senior man on Facebook. When responding to Borisky’s post about enjoying her money, he said, “Senior man, your face show and your shoe shine.” “I don’t have a single problem like this, let me just keep enjoying my money the ones my boyfriends give me every now and then,” he said. This remark appears to have irritated Bobrisky, who retorted angrily to the comedian, saying, “Mr. Funny Na, your papa be senior man, I will soon detain you.”
