Meet Ms Sahara ,Nigeria's first Transgender Female
The first time i saw these pics i thought to myself she's a gorgeous hottie ...before you start feeling weak in the knees due to the strong, sexy and
bold gaze from the hot lady in the pics above, think again cos she was born as a male.
Shocked huh? He used to live in Abuja, Nigeria under the name, Mr Oche, but now she lives in London under the new name Ms. Sahara. Ms. Sahara used to reside in Abuja and lived in
an openly feminine manner until she left the country about 7 years ago.
Since moving to the UK, she participated in the Miss InternationalQueen Pageant
for transgenders from around the world in 2011. Although she did not win, she
was good enough to finish second place. Ms Sahara is currently Nigeria's first Transgender Female.
This shouldnt be a shock because this has been done by Chasity Bono who had a sex change and turned herself to the new Chaz Salvatore Bono.
Please take note that this is not to spite or mock Ms Sahara. Everyone
has his/her right to live they way they want and make choices for
themselves. Ms Sahara has made his/her decision and i don't think we should judge her.
In a statement, Ms Sahara said:“I
was very feminine when I was growing up and often got harassed and
beaten up badly … the terrible memories flood back when I look at the
scars all over my body … We are called a crude name that translates
loosely into faggot and are forced to live underground … I am living my
life openly as a woman. I am very happy … I decided to travel to
Thailand to enter this competition not to win but to show suppressed
transgender people in Nigeria that they too can make their dreams come
