Since then, he has been Vogue’s muse when the fashion giant were exploring the LGBT community in Nigeria, Whoopi Goldberg sent him a shoutout and US rapper, 50 Cent supposedly posted him.
James revealed in the now infamous 2018 viral video, that his real name is James Obialor, a 20 year old dancer – at the time. Part of what made him popular was his admission that he had HIV, transferred from his mother.
While conceived with James, his mother attempted to abort him on several occasions, but he survived and was raised by his grandmother.
The now full-fledge drag queen was 12 years old when he discovered his status after his dad told him about it.

In the 2018 video that made him an internet sensation, he was arrested for allegedly being part of gang of boys actively taking part in a gay orgy at the Kelly Ann hotel, Lagos. Its criminal to participate in same-sex sexual activity in Nigeria.
After spending a month in an Ikoyi correctional facility, the case was dropped and Bob Risky reached out and rewarded him with 100k reward for his bravery.

Last year in 2021, James accused Bob Risky of threatening to send him to jail and kill him because his senior colleague – as Bob is often called – accused him of stealing his content.
James claimed he will not be intimidated by his senior in the game.
He is currently in London, United Kingdom, and fans, happy James finally made it out of Nigeria, are ridiculing his senior colleague who has already been around the world.
