The gbas-gbos since the premiere and the cinema runs started are on another level; it is another Nollywood story on its own. I pray Bobrisky (Mummy of Lagos) gets home safely. Please EFCC, help us. We have learned our lessons; we will do better and stop spraying money. We will only do transfers.”

Nigerian media personality, Denola Grey also stated that the six months jail-term slammed on famous crossdresser Bobrisky’s is unfair.

He opined that the court’s decision to sentence Bobrisky to prison without the option of fine has nothing to do with the naira abuse he was arraigned for.

Taking to his Twitter page on Friday, Grey said there is more to the sentence than meets the eye and he was being used as a “scapegoat.”
