Nigerian transvestite and social media celebrity, Okuneye Idris Olanrewaju, aka Bobrisky – has revealed why he chose Christianity over Islam when choosing which religion he wanted to follow.
According to him, the fact that he has to perform ablution five times a day as a Muslim put him off, considering he has to put on make-up after each ablution.
Bobrisky, who posts videos on Snapchat modelling clothes, including women’s clothes – is something of a pariah in Nigeria for his cross dressing, excessive bleaching and general effeminate behaviour which makes many tag his as gay.
In an interview with Nigeria’s The Vanguard newspaper, Bobrinsky said the issue of ablution put him off the religion of Islam.
“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.” he said.
“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.” He added.
