Eniola Ajao - Bobrisky

Eniola has expressed her regrets in picking Bobrisky as the ‘Best Dressed Female’ over other ladies at a recent event in Lagos.

Nollywood actress, Eniola Ajao is taking a step to undoing her wrongs by awarding two attendees at her movie premiere, Bose Alao and another as Best Dressed Female.

Kemi Filani reported that the movie star sparked tons of backlash after she declared Bobrisky, a Nigerian crossdresser, the Best Dressed Female at her movie premiere.

In an interview with Arise News TV, Eniola admitted that it was a deliberate action to pick Bobrisky as the winner as it was all a publicity stunt and marketing strategy to promote her movie.

She noted how the crossdresser is a controversial person, hence, her decision to award him the ‘Best Dressed Female’ to generate more buzz for her project.

She noted how people are dragging Femi Adebayo, who was oblivious to her schemes and was only trying to support her by being the presenter of the night.

Now in a lengthy post on her Instagram page, the movie star revealed that to make amends, she would be gifting the two women a million naira each.

She penned a deep apology post to the Muslim community, women, Dayo Amusa, Femi Adebayo, and his wife and Bobrisky who were all affected by the scandal.

Read Apology From Eniola Ajao

Dear Esteemed Members of the Public

I write to you today with a heavy heart, filled with regret and remorse over the events that unfolded at my movie premiere, BEAST OF TWO WORLDS “AJAKAJU,” #ajakajuthemovie on Sunday, 24th March, 2024. I address you all today, taking full responsibility and seeking your pardon with my deepest regrets for the distress and turmoil caused by the events surrounding the selection of Best Dressed at the premiere of “AJAKAJU.”

First, I want to extend my sincerest apologies to the Muslim community, especially during this sacred month of Ramadan. I acknowledge and respect the significance of this time, and it was never my intention to offend or upset anyone with the proceedings of our premiere. Please accept my sincerest apologies for any distress my actions may have caused during this sacred time.

To the women in our society, I want to express my profound apologies. As a woman myself, I understand the importance of upholding and honoring our gender with dignity and respect. I want to assure you that I hold the utmost reverence for womanhood, and I would never intentionally engage in any behavior that diminishes or disparages the role of women in our society.

I also extend my heartfelt apologies to My honorable and supportive boss Femi Adebayo @femiadebayosalami and his wife, @iyanaladuke and @dayoamusa for the undue backlash they faced as a result of the announcement made at our event. I deeply regret the insults and disrespect directed towards them, and I take full responsibility for any harm caused.

To Bobrisky @bobrisky222 I offer my sincere apologies for putting you in a difficult position. The decision to award you was never meant to cause harm or controversy but was rather an attempt to generate publicity for our movie. I am truly sorry for any distress this may have caused you.

In an effort to make amends and correct my mistakes, I have decided to honor two females, Bode Alao and one other beautiful woman as the best-dressed females at the premiere. Each will receive a sum of N1,000,000(One Million Naira) as a token of my sincere apology and appreciation for their grace and elegance”.
