For Obialor , popularly known as James Brown or ‘ They didn ’ t caught me ’ , getting arrested a few months ago appears to be a blessing in disguise as the dancer shot into the limelight when he was paraded by the police on national television .
Soon after the video clip surfaced online , Brown became an Internet sensation because of the grammatical blunders he made.
According to the young dancer , he was at the venue because he was scheduled to perform at the party that day but unfortunately for him , he was arrested along with some other young men when he was just about to hit the stage to perform .
Recently , celebrity cross- dresser , Bobrisky, made a public declaration on his Instagram page about how he was inspired by Obialor’ s video after it went viral .
He wrote , “ James , I ’ m inspired by you , darling , because you came out to tell the world what you were going through. The day I saw your viral video, I was like who is this strong guy . Now , let me tell you , darling , ask me anything ; I mean , your heart desire , I ’ m ready to support you . Let’ s start from N 100 , 000 cash first . Please find your way to my house tomorrow please ( sic ) . ”
In a telephone conversation with Saturday Beat , the 20 – year – old dancer talked about how his meeting with Bobrisky inspired him and how he was arrested and accused wrongly .
“ I was happy and inspired when I met Bobrisky. I was about to perform on stage at the birthday party when the police officials came to arrest some guys and girls . I didn ’ t even know my video would go viral like that . I had to talk back at the policemen because I was being accused wrongly and I had to defend myself .
“ They accused me wrongly because I act feminine when I talk and being feminine is not a crime ; I have always been like this since I was a child . I was about eight years old when I started dancing ; I used to stay with my grandma and she was the only person that was supporting me at that time , ” he told Saturday Beat .
Obialor ’ s video went viral locally and internationally , to the extent that American artiste , 50 Cent , posted the video clip on his Instagram page .
“ I was happy when 50 Cent reposted the video because he said something nice about it . This new fame that has found me has opened many doors for me , but the sad thing is that my parents are not in support of what I am doing . I intend to use this avenue to start making income for myself .
“ My dad doesn ’ t believe I can make a living from my fame; I need to convince him by becoming the real celebrity people want me to be , ” he said .
Obialor made a shocking revelation when he disclosed his HIV status on the Internet and he further confirmed to Saturday Beat that he had been HIV positive from birth .
“ I talked about my HIV status to make my case stronger; a policeman actually discriminated against me because of my status when I had to stay in police custody after the arrest . I told them I needed to take my medication because of my status but they talked down on me and made me feel bad .
“ I was 12 when I discovered my status after my dad told me about it . I was born with the virus. After I came out to talk about my status openly , I have received love and support from people , ” he said .DON'T MISS: Download Edujandon.com News app and get latest news updates directly to your phone!
