Popular Nigerian crossdresser, James Brown, found fame after he was paraded as one of the 57 suspected homosexuals arrested at a birthday party in 2018, and ever since then he’s become an online sensation.
In this interesting episode of LITV show, NaijaTalk Podcast, James Brown talks about how he started crossdressing, his time in prison, his rift with popular crossdresser, Bobrisky and many more.
James explained that he had always wanted to put on women’s clothes and make-up since he was young.
On his time in prison, where he spent three weeks, James described those times as “hell,” saying that he was beaten, molested, and was made to pack feces alongside other prisoners.
He also claimed that in prison, there are different grades, the “VVIP, VIP, Medium Class, and Jakara, a crowded cell where he was kept.”
After his release from prison, James Brown said he went through series of therapy because of the traumatic experience in prison. He also claimed that he tried to sue the Nigerian police after the case was dismissed, but later decided not to go ahead with the move after those who were arrested with him lost interest.
While discussing his rift with Bobrisky, he said the senior crossdresser didn’t influence his decision to go into cross-dressing and went on to credits his success to Denrele and Charly Boy.
When asked why he didn’t mention Bobrisky, James Brown said he doesn’t want to get involved with him, because he “has a personality that’s toxic to my mental health”
He later admitted that before he became a crossdresser, he got some ”courage and idea” from Bobrisky on how to take risks.
Sharing more details about what led to their ‘fight,’ he said Bobrisky had called to threaten him. To get back at him, James said he called Bobrisky a ‘snitch’ and threatened to expose some secrets about him in the nearest future.
