James Brown, the controversial Nigerian crossdresser, says Bobrisky, the self-acclaimed transgender, once threatened to kill him if “I remain queen of Africa”.


In a now-viral video, Brown who used to be a mentee of Bobrisky said they were friends until he became a “drag queen”.

According to him, Bobrisky felt “threatened” after he started cross-dressing and dancing on Instagram.

The 23-year-old also claimed his senior colleague made several threats to his life “if I didn’t stop being James Brown”.


“He’s been trending for long, he’s respected. He’s older than me, he’s about 30-something years and he has been in the industry for like seven years. I just came, three to four years ago,” he said.

“When I came, he supported me, gave me money. He supported me the way he could, which I really appreciate. He was supportive, we would talk on the phone, and we would hang out.

“As time went on, I became a dancer from Instagram into a drag queen. At that moment he was threatened and he became my enemy. He didn’t like me at all.


“He approached me telling me he’s going to kill me if I don’t stop being a drag queen. I don’t know, I don’t get it. Sometimes you think you know people while you don’t know them.

“He just switched and he threatened me that if I continue being James Brown, being the drag queen, being the princess of Africa, he would kill me.”

The pair have been at loggerheads on several occasions in the past.

In January 2021, Brown had claimed that Bobrisky threatened to ensure he is put behind bars.
