Internet sensation James Obialor has just revealed how happy he was when he met with Nigeria’s male Barbie, Bobrisky.
According to Punch, the young man disclosed that meeting Bobrisky was a happy and inspiring moment for him. Obialor further spoke about how he was arrested by the police at a birthday party in Lagos.
He added that, he had no idea his video would go viral but he was only trying to prove to the police that he was innocent.
He said: “I was happy and inspired when I met Bobrisky. I was about to perform on stage at the birthday party when the police officials came to arrest some guys and girls. I didn’t even know my video would go viral like that. I had to talk back at the policemen because I was being accused wrongly and I had to defend myself. They accused me wrongly because I act feminine when I talk and being feminine is not a crime; I have always been like this since I was a child. I was about eight years old when I started dancing; I used to stay with my grandma and she was the only person that was supporting me at that time.”
About his Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) status, he explained that he was born with the virus because his parents were carriers of the virus.
Obialor said: “I talked about my HIV status to make my case stronger; a policeman actually discriminated against me because of my status when I had to stay in police custody after the arrest. I told them I needed to take my medication because of my status but they talked down on me and made me feel bad. I was 12 when I discovered my status after my dad told me about it. I was born with the virus. After I came out to talk about my status openly, I have received love and support from people.”
