Bobrisky as a Boy Before Transformation
Bobrisky was born Idris Okuneye Olanrewaju on 31st August 1991 in Ebuttemeta Lagos, Nigeria. The Instagram sensation was born a male into a polygamous home of Yoruba origin. It was revealed that his late mother noticed quite early his preference for female attires as well as his attitude that represents everything female.
Just as expected of a typical African parent, the woman tried her best to beat the “disorder” out of Bob. But, all her efforts and the measures taken towards that eventually proved unsuccessful as Bobrisky, rather than changing, continued to grow deeper in feminine activities. His personality was all portrayed in female life including cooking and cleaning, and his mother had no further choice but to accept him like that.

Apart from cross-dressing, another thing that helped drew lots of attention to Bobrisky was his skin color transformation. This came after he had become popular on social media. Initially, Bobrisky was a typical dark-skinned guy but has now transformed into a snow-white-skinned girl, thanks to his bleaching cream expertise. He has a personal online store of skin lightening products which include knuckle creams, body scrubs, shower gels, etc.
His Crossdressing Life was a Strategy
According to Bobrisky, his decision to take on a new identity was stirred by his hunger for fame, popularity, and wealth. After his university education, he started selling women’s clothing and beauty products. This added to his longtime interest in wearing female things and drawing attention was made quite easy for him. He also began to sell cosmetics and body creams and gained the attention he long desired. Bob turned it into a strategy for improving his business.
As we have mentioned earlier, Bobrisky started cross-dressing from a very young age. He preferred wearing female attire, and even sometimes, he managed to wear a man’s clothes, he would make sure to look girly in them by styling them in a way to also appear girlish. In fact, the crossdresser has succeeded in his cross-dressing game that he can now easily pass for a woman.
Furthermore, Bobrisky divulged that one of the reasons he changed himself to a woman was because of the too much struggle he went through even after he graduated from the University of Lagos. According to the male barbie, he noticed that almost all his female friends are cashing out, so, he took advantage of some of the existing female features he already had and started crossdressing.

Today, Bobrisky has gone on to change a few things in his body. He also said that he had been taking drugs that are capable of modifying hormones to make him more feminine. In 2019, Bobrisky went for liposuction surgery in Dubai. Giving an update on his liposuction surgery, he bemoaned the painful experience he went through to have the flawless shape and look he now flaunts.
He confessed that liposuction is not easy as all of his body is swollen and he couldn’t sit with his buttocks for one month. Other surgeries he has reportedly undergone are face surgery and butt-lift surgery to enhance his buttock.
