Bobrisky, one of Nigeria’s social media celebrities that shakes the web.
Being honest, I really do appreciate his success stories roaming the web, but perhaps am not the only one who is not clear about his net-worth proclamations.
Many have possibly asked questions like how Bobrisky got rich? 
Bobrisky real age and the honesty in bobrisky biography?
Well known, Bob-risky is a bleaching cream expert, and as well cross-dressing model. But I still doubt the updates I get from my opera mini news about his lifestyle.
Some weeks ago, I read that he had pulled down his former Snapchat account for reasons which he claimed was haters disturbing him, and had created another one where he was billing followers a sum of N10,000 to subscribe to his posts. Surly, he must have posted his account number as well.
In yet another story again, bobrisky was seen uploading screenshots of the people who had actually paid up and signed up to his Premium Snapchat account so far. Next, the bleaching expert was proudly talking about how he was ‘signing his millions’ after clinching a multi-million Naira endorsement contract with a company, that company name was never stated. Then very recently, there was a story about how much of a noise he made when he flew First class for the very first time.
This was closely followed by his Sallah post about how he spent over N15 million to celebrate the Sallah with 500 poor persons, and how he gave his gate man a treat.
Before I commence my deductions, I want to ask anyone who has even seen Bobrisky much acclaimed $400 per bottle bleaching product to kindly indicate in the comment box of this post, because I live in Lagos and move around the Island a much often and NEVER have I come across this ‘golden cream’ before.
Questions about Bobrisky with Reasons worth seeked for.
  • Is Bobrisky married to a man or woman? 
  • Why do a number of Bobrisky’s claims seem to me to be hugely exaggerated?
  • Is Bobrisky a Nigerian? 
  • What is it with Nigerians and ‘quadruplicating’ unseen figures of Bobrisky? 
  • Is Bobrisky actually a boy or girl? 
  • Why has his activities and acclaimed life of living not view critically being examined ?
  • Why has his activities continued despite being against some of the country constitutional rules?
  • Why has his acclaimed cosmetic brand product not being a sight object in the national market, as well as local scale?
Though, it is one thing to be a very famous controversial cross-dresser with a pretty comfortable livelihood, and it is another thing to be an affluent recklessly-spending ‘money-bag’ who has clawed his way up into the class of the elite. Some of the stories I have read about this Bobrisky fellow seem to paint him as one that belongs to the latter, and somehow the reasons are just shattered.
Am also trying to imagine how a big bleaching cream brand that can enable its creator and founder spend about N15 million in one day will not be on every major cosmetic shop shelf in Nigeria and at least Lagos his business base.
Logically, a man who claims spending N15 million once an event, would surely have over N100 million, Right?
So if this is the case, and we all know that Bobrisky alludes his bleaching expertise as being the main source of his wealth, how come no one can seem to find this magical product he produces and sells?
  • What is Bobrisky endorsement all about? 
  • Ok, what about the company he said signed him up and gave him ‘millions’ for a deal, why have they hidden their brand in shadows?
  • I also heard someone say something about a hair or cosmetic company, really?
  • Could this company be in the Nigerian boarder? 
  • Being honest, In a country as religious, traditional and condemnatory as Nigeria, what weave-on company would want to flaunt a famous male transformed into a woman on their billboards, and cover packages knowing how the society regards thematic displays that extol a custom that is depraved and somewhat perverted.
  • Yes, he is popular and the media-people have turned him into a celebrity, but aren’t there other even more famous beautiful female celebrities whom this ‘company’ could use as Ambassador to promote their weave-ons?
  • Being so controversial, he has succeded in confusing some on his age and biography.
  •  Bobrisky is very controversial; I agree, but how the nature of this his ‘controversy’ can translate into favorably promoting a company and bringing business is what I don’t understand.
Companies always carefully examine the pros and cons before striking out into a venture.

  • This is Nigeria and Africa at large, what would the general reaction in a homophobic country be to a company using a character that almost everyone deride as being a homosexual as their brand ambassador?
  •   Do you think that company would ever be taken seriously?
Even the ladies who think they are ardent fans of Bobrisky would never pick a weave-on with Bobrisky’s painted face and fixed Barbie-doll hair over a St. Genevieve hair brand (Genevieve Nnaji’s cosmetic line).
OK, so someone says that maybe it is a body cream company that seeks Bob risky as brand ambassador, interesting.

  • I thought Bob Risky was a bleaching cream mixer or manufacturer or is it expert as well?
  • Shouldn’t this mean that he has his brand where he either models personally for or recruits well-bleached models to represent his brand?
OK, let’s even assume that he can be offered an endorsement deal with a beauty cream company.
  • Would it be a straight-up bleaching company?
ü  How many Nigerian companies even admit that their products ‘bleach’ these days?Today, all we hear are excuses like tone, lighten, highlight, fade milk etc.  Scientific knowledge and global enlightenment about the harmful effects of using bleaching products on the skin have spread and beauty brands today now know that it is bad business strategy to promote the art of bleaching to the public by fronting a certified ‘bleacher’.
So the million dollar question:
  • Which body cream company in Nigeria would offer Bobrisky millions of Naira to represent them having acknowledged that what this acclaimed ‘male Barbie’ is doing to his own skin is suicidal in the long run; and encouraging Nigerians to subject their own skins to such excessive eradication of their pigmentation must have fearful after-consequences?
  • Also, why would any company trust their product lead under Bobrisky barbie when he has being in multiple clashes other celebrities? 

This clashes included :

  • bobrisky and Wizkid
  • Bobrisky and Davido
  • Bobrisky and Denrele
  • Bobrisky and Mc Galaxy
  • Bobrisky and Daddy Freeze
  • Bobrisky and Jacob Saga
  • Bobrisky and Jacob Salary Story
  • Bobrisky and Turned Ednut
  • Bobrisky and the Nigerian Police force. 

Consequently, I have gone round in a neat circle, and am back to where I started from.

  • So is Bobrisky being entirely truthful, or he is just blowing his achievements out of proportion?
  • Has or can anyone actually verify the mansion and luxury he claims belongs to him? .
  • Maybe I am wrong, but I guess I smell oily lies from this fellow.
  •  It is possible he is accomplishing some, but he is exaggerating a lot of them by 100.
  • And why is he so desperate for social media validation and recognition? Posting every one of his acclaimed ‘achievements’ and blowing his own trumpet.
  • Then, why isn’t anyone telling Bobrisky that once he approaches 40 and his skin begins to sag, he will need more than bleaching creams, female dresses, make-up and green contact lens to retain and maintain this elegance’ and glamour that cut his niche for him.
All in all, I suspect that Bobrisky’s lies are more Risky than what he is doing to his Skin.

Can Bitcoin Become the Next Global Reserve Currency?

Published

on

One of the most interesting trends surfacing in the crypto industry today is the increasing likelihood of Bitcoin emerging as the next global reserve currency – something that Bitcoin fundamentalists have been preaching for the last decade. 

With the combination of transparency and decentralized trust brought on by the blockchain, individuals and companies across the world have had the opportunity to participate in a free financial system since the emergence of Bitcoin some twelve years ago. 

Since the dawn of Blockchain, trust in this trustless system has been slowly rising with a diverse range of individuals, institutional investors, and even world governments investing in the technology and the various tokens in circulation today. One result of this has been the free flow of liquidity across borders in a remarkably revolutionary way – satisfying the ever-growing need for a more efficient global financial system. 

Mr. Yoon Kim is an accomplished and dynamic crypto analyst and strategist. He successfully built the TMT sector of Tremblant Capital and helped the company increase its AUM from $200 million to $5 billion in five-years’ time. He then launched Vestry Capital, a global TMT equity fund as the head of which he served as an advisor and consultant to various hedge funds and blockchain projects.

With his 20 years of experience in investing and in the blockchain industry, Mr. Kim acutely understands these shifts in the global financial system. 

For that reason, one of the key topics of conversation during The New Normal of Blockchain & Cryptocurrency panel which AIKON organized in late October was “where the future lies for the USD and its long-term position as the world’s reserve currency”. 

Mr. Kim indicated that the USD losing some of its standing in the global financial system and possibly its status as the reserve currency as an inevitable product of blockchain’s accessibility and decentralization. 

As Mr. Kim has pointed out, the current financial system has been in place since World War II – 75 years now! On average, global financial systems have typically lasted for ~70-80 years each. We are, then, coming to the end of an era and can stand with bated breath awaiting the next financial revolution. 

Moreover, history has shown that significant global events often precede the breakdown of institutionalized financial systems. For the Pax Britannica, it was World War I. For the global financial system, we have today, it may very well be the impact of COVID-19 on the world economy. 

Having been a staple of the global economy, and considering the turmoil, the US has endured throughout 2020, USD is in serious danger of being dislodged from the position of power it has enjoyed over the last three-quarters of the 21st century. 

Given the amount of influence that US politics now has on the rest of the world, and being mindful that the level of engagement that USD (as a global reserve currency) will have on the rest of the world after the presidential election will probably never reach the levels from 40 – 50 years ago when it was at its peak. With the decrease in the level of engagement of the US with the world economy after the Soviet Union dissolution, what we see now are the effects of the politics that took 20 years to materialize. 

In that sense, Mr. Kim pointed out that it is very probable that USD is about to be dethroned as the most important currency in the world. 

And while there are those who would like to see the Chinese RMB take its place, Mr. Kim considers this very unlikely to happen. For one, dethroning USD from the position of the global reserve currency would put a significant amount of pressure and responsibility on the Chinese financial system, responsibilities the country seems to be shunning presently. For instance, China has been accused of intentionally increasing demand which then leads to an increase in the prices of international commodities. 

Therefore, the question is what will supplant USD as the global reserve currency or at least become an alternate reserve currency running in parallel with USD?

Mr. Kim stated that Bitcoin seems to fit perfectly, especially taking into account the timing of its rise, as well as its ability to cross borders with very little effort. 

As political and economic relations between the US and China continue to collapse, it is becoming increasingly unlikely that either the USD or RMB will be viewed as a viable global reserve currency going forward. 

Bitcoin may prove to be the thing that both nations, as well as the rest of the world, decide they can live within the upcoming decades. 

While the Chinese government is actively restricting crypto trades, there is massive support within the government for cryptocurrencies and blockchain. This implies that they have a long-term strategy in place, where Bitcoin would be used to dislodge the USD as the global reserve currency. 

In the same way, we’re seeing the causality of the US global economics politics conducted in the past 20 years and its effect on the situation now, there is a good chance that 20 years from now we will have Bitcoin as the reserve currency of the world simply because it will not be controlled by any one nation and its financial system. 

Should Mr. Kim’s predictions come to be realized, individual and corporate players in this new market that is quickly gaining momentum should be preparing for the shift.
