He used to live in Abuja, Nigeria under the name,Â Oche, but now she lives in London under the name Ms. Sahara. Ms Sahara left Nigeria 7years ago and soon assumed a new image. Sources say that years ago, Ms. Sahara used to reside in Abuja and lived in anÂ openly feminine manner.
Since moving to the UK, she has participated in theÂ Miss International QueenÂ Pageant for transgenders from around the world. Although she did not win, she was good enough to finish second place. We have below a video of her appearance in theÂ Miss International QueenÂ Pageant competition.
In a statement, Ms Sahara said:Â “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 â€¦ 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 true”
