Controversial crossdresser, Okuneye Idris Olarenwaju better known as Bobrisky has recounted Fuji King, Wasiu Ayinde Marshall aka Kwam 1 was mocked for performing at his luxurious 30th birthday party. 

Bobrisky made this known during his recent interview with Nigerian journalist Chude Jideonwu, where he revealed how he amassed so much wealth from brand influencing deals on social media.

 “When I told people I wanted Kwam 1 at my party, they were like he is expensive and all but because I wanted a luxury party, I didn’t mind the cost. …when kwam 1 came through for me at my party, I was overwhelmed….having a legend attend to me was overwhelming, when we went to pay him in his hometown in Ijebu, people said all sorts, like why would he collect money to go and play for Bobrisky but he shunned them…accepted and said he will come through for me.



Speaking about his brand influencing deals and how he really makes his money, he said;

I charge up to N30million to endorse and promote for brands….for 6 months deal, I charge up to N50million depending on the brand, i do it with passion and because i am an interesting person, people watch me and want to listen to me and watch me and it helps me sell or market what i put out there and brands always pay for it because they get results…and there is also the behind the scene source of income which I am not ready to put out there.”

On how the journey into stardom began, Bobrisky said “It all started from Snapchat, doing things my way and interestingly people were following and wanting to keep up with me…Snapchat made me so famous…I have over 1.5million subscribers and it was one of my friends, Eniola Badmus that now advised me to divert and build an audience on Instagram too and the revenue started coming in…I will post a video and in one minute, I will have over 100,000 views….”
