Yul Edochie, an actor, has responded to allegations of a sexual relationship with crossdresser Bobrisky.
In August, the 40-year-old received criticism for his birthday greeting to Bobrisky.
Some Nigerians who saw the message reacted negatively, criticising him for honouring Idris Okuneye, who was born in Bobrisky.
Some people asserted that they are romantically involved.
Reacting to the criticism in an Instagram post on Saturday, Yul Edochie wrote: “Earlier this year, I wished Bobrisky a happy birthday with his picture posted on my Instagram page. And then my page literally blew up and went on fire. By the time I came back, I got thousands of messages on and then my DM was flooded with messages. Somebody actually sent me a DM and said that I’m sleeping with Bobrisky. Just because I wished him a happy birthday on my page.
“Someone even called me and requested that I pull down. Some people were even telling me how God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah. Are you God? Did God send you to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah?Stop judging people, you are not God. Bobrisky is a human being like every other person. Why do we discriminate against people? We should stop all these. God said love your neighbour as yourself. Nigerians rest.”
