Nigerian Celebrity Bobrisky Sentenced to Male Jail For “Spraying” Naira Notes At Film Premiere

In a surprising turn of events, Bobrisky, one of Nigeria’s beloved celebrities and a prominent transgender woman, has been sentenced to six months in jail for “spraying” naira banknotes at a film premiere.


Local media reports suggest that she will not be given the option to pay a fine instead.


The act of throwing money in the air, known as “spraying,” is a traditional sign of appreciation often seen at Nigerian weddings and celebrations.
However, this practice is considered an offense as the banknotes subsequently fall to the ground, where they can be trampled upon.
