A bill seeking to ban cross-dressing in Nigeria has been introduced in the lower chamber of the national assembly.

9news Nigeria understands that cross-dressing has become more common in the country following the fame of popular Instagram entertainer, Bobrisky.

Bobrisky is born male and his birth name is Okuneye Idris Olarenwaju but has chosen to dress like the opposite gender.

He is popularly known for his presence on the social media apps Snapchat and Instagram.

However, a member of the House of Representatives, Umar Muda has presented before the chamber a bill seeking to stop the likes of Bobrisky and James Brown, his copycat.
