      So much hate and vitriol, people like you are why Nigeria remains backwards. The day people like you die off will mark a new beginning for Nigeria.

    I am reading some comments and the way I see it, many people prefer trangender more than gay people. A man who wants to be a woman by force that’s insane,I am a white person trapped in a black woman’s body, I hate rap music, I want to be white, so should I start bleaching till I turn china-white, dye my hair blonde, wear blue eye lens, I will still be black, a self hating black woman, that’s what people would call me.

    No matter how much u cut and sew, u can never be a woman, cutting off ur penis doesn’t make u a woman, instead it makes u a man without a penis, change ur outward appearance all u want, ur insides are still all man, ur bones are man bones .

      @bruno-Maybe u r just jealous of ms. Nigeria and i think u are a transgender that can’t come out that’s why u r hating other people..

    • bruno

      July 20, 2014 at 2:12 pm

      I am a man, why would I want to be a woman, being a man is like winning the lottery, LOL. I hate people who alter them selves to look like something their not, a girls who is black who changes her self by bleaching has low self esteem, just like a boy who changes his sex to be a woman, has low self esteem and serious daddy issues, how long will ur liver last with all the hormones ur taking. Not long sweet heart. LOL

    Why do you guys hate someone who isn’t doing anything to you? guys, is she a threat to your sexuality? Are you struggling with your sexuality? females, do you think she will steal your man? You know some of your boyfriends & husbands are getting it on the low with these transgenders or gays. Be deceiving yourselves thinking that your man only likes your pum-pum. If Sahara doesn’t affect your happiness, relax and continue to pray for that disastrous umbrella nose president & the safety of Nigeria. They are killing your people like animals every day. Your lives have zero value in Nigeria. Your Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, yet una no get light, water, security, but u are worried about gays & transgenders living THEIR OWN lives. Bury your phucking heads in shame.

    A Nigerian transgender completely grabbed the attention of the judges which consists of a marketing director from a top sporting brand, a consulate of the U.S. Embassy and a former Miss Universe. A Nigerian transgender who defeated 7 other countries and impressed the crowd with unparalleled intelligence. Now tell me if he’s not making Nigeria proud.

      You are clearly mad, a man who’s in denial of his sex, he’s so ugly as a boy that’s why he’s hiding under all those fake wigs,eyes lashes and make up. Having boobs doesn’t make u woman, to be a woman,u must be born a girl first and grow into a woman. We shouldn’t be promoting this transgender –

    Story makes me speechless, comments make me speechless. Too hard to understand why a man would want to be a woman this bad or vice versa. I hear stuff like ” I feel trapped in a body that doesnt feel like mine”. The one question I’d like to ask a transgender if I ever met one would be “So are you happy now?”. Some serious psychological isshh going on with dem transpeeps! God help them and us!

    As a documentary addict, watched a documentary on this last year, this should be her 2nd time then lol, aside interesting documentary none the less.
    What I kept thinking, a straight man who fall for a supposed girl cos these ladies guys look so much like women.
    I feel sorry for our sons and unborn ones, it doesn’t get better 🙁

    Nigeria is still essentially a macho, male dominated society. Anybody doing anything contrary to the accepted norm of the society is considered an outcast. That is why a transgender like Ms Sahhara is being crucified. Transgenderism has become a phenomenon that has been accepted in the western word but culturally alien to Africa (Nigeria). I believe individual should be accepted for merit in whatever they have chosen to be because the world is changing and becoming freer of taboos. I congratulate Ms Sahhara for creating a class for herself as a super transgender model. She should adopt a country because her gender is not legally and culturally recognized in Nigeria.
