Eniola revealed in an interview with Arise News TV that Bobrisky’s selection as the winner was a calculated PR stunt and marketing plan to support her film.

She emphasised that the crossdresser is a contentious figure, which is why she decided to give him the Best Dressed Female title in an effort to increase awareness.

She said;

“It was all joke, we wanted to have fun. We wanted people to talk about the movie. My team and I decided that the movie needed to be talked about and for it to be in the faces of people and we decided to give it to Bobrisky because he is a controversial person.

At the end of the day, people started talking about it, but some people are trying to come at Femi Adebayo, who is my boss. He wasn’t even aware of so many things that were going on. I only called him to help me announce this, he wasn’t part of the judges or anything”
