Says Award to Bobrisky is to make people talk about the new movie

The reknown Yoruba actress, ENIOLA AJAO has gone public with her unreserved apology on the controversial award given to Idris Okuneye, popularly known as BOBRISKY during the premier of her (Eniola Ajao's) new movie, "Ajakaju" recently.

Bobrisky, who was a transgender and who recently informed the public the completion of his transformation to a woman, giving credits to different medical outfits both within and outside Nigeria that has helped her completed the transformation and also help to maintain the status, was awarded the best dressed woman at the premier of the movie "Ajakaju" produced by ENIOLA Ajao. The award was announced in the course of the event by Femi Adebayo.

However, the duo of both the film producer, ENIOLA Ajao and Femi Adebayo have come under heavy fire and criticism from colleagues, religious leaders, especially, the Muslims and the general public for what seems like a deliberate act to encouraging LGBTQ, an acronym for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning persons or the community.

Femi Adebayo who was believed to be a good practitioner of the Islamic religion had swiftly apologised to colleagues and the public, especially, Islamic Clerics.

Also, ENIOLA Ajao has taken a cue by sending out to the public her message of apology, especially, to Muslim faithfuls and women folk as she announced that the award will now be given to a new set of women, Bode Alao and "one other beautiful woman".

The message reads in part:: "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.

"In an effort to make amends and correct my mistakes, I have decided to honour 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"

The implementation of this is that Bobrisky has been stripped of the award and given to other people.

Meanwhile, in another message, Eniola confessed that giving the best dressed woman to Bobrisky during the premier is to make people talk about the new movie and the premiere. She revealed this while answering questions on a radio program.
