Kudirat Adefunke, the mother to Bobrisky, the Nigerian crossdresser, has recalled the last moment she shared with her husband.
On Monday, Bobrisky took to Facebook to announce her father’s demise.
The burial rites followed on Tuesday at Ijebu Igbo, Ogun state.
Speaking with Kilarigbo TV, the online platform, during the burial ceremony, Kudirat, 71, described Bobrisky’s father as a loving husband.
The grieving woman also talked about the strange circumstances she noticed about his death.
She said she discovered “death was near” when they both returned from a burial ceremony of one of her in-laws.
“He loved me till he died. And I took care of him. We were even at home last week. His brother’s wife died, his brother of the same father. Her name was Batiru Alake. We came to do the party together. And I discovered death was near. We then returned to Lagos on Friday,” she said.
“It was on that Friday I told him to accompany me to Juma’t prayer, but he said he was tired, and I agreed that he was tired. Later, he ate some food. In short, around 5 am, I asked what was wrong when he started praying for my birthday on August 15.
“I had to quickly call his first son, who was preparing to go to work, to come check on his father. But by the time we got back to him, he had already breathed his last.”
In 2020, Bobrisky, born Idris Okuneye, revealed that she opted for cross-dressing in order to make ends meet after 25 years of being a man.
In September 2021, Bobrisky also talked about some of the perks she enjoys being a “woman”.
“I want to be a woman because being a woman has paved a lot of ways for me. Women don’t actually know how powerful they are. They don’t know how to use their resources as a woman,” she had said.
She is a bachelor’s degree holder in Accounting from the University of Lagos (UNILAG).
