Bobrisky, real name Idris Okuneye Olanrewaju, is definitely here to leave an indelible mark regardless of the negativity and hate.
Five years ago, the 24-year-old bleaching expert was arrested for cross-dressing. Today, the self styled King of Snapchat has been invited to speak at the New Media Citizens and Governance conference in Abuja on the unconventional uses of new media.
Bobrisky will be sharing the same stage with senators, corporate executives and notable media experts such as Japheth Omojuwa and Tolu Ogunlesi.
Taking to his Snapchat, the bubbly entrepreneur gushed at this major achievement before revealing that he will be going on a UK tour.
In a recent interview, Bobrisky opened up on how his mum sent thugs to beat him up because of his preferences. However, despite the harsh comments and bullying he has continued to receive, he has stayed true to himself.
“Popularity comes with cyber bullying because a lot of people will insult you and will call you names but I believe you just have to be true to yourself. If you are faking it, that is when the insults will get to you but if you are true to who you are, you really want to build yourself and your brand then, careless about what people say.” he said during his interview with Accelerate TV.
Since he became an internet sensation a few months ago, Bobrisky has been interviewed by EbonyLife TV, TW magazine and Pulse TV. Now, he is taking on a speaking engagement and going on his first major tour.
There is no denying that a star has indeed been born!
