Miss Sahhara, a native of Otukpo Nobi in Otukpo Local Government Area of Benue State, is one of the first known Nigerian transgenders and has continued to claim that she was born as a woman and that the sex surgery was just to fulfill her her freedom which many had denied her in the past.

Miss Sahhara, a former Miss Transgender International Queen in 2011, continues to face public condemnation from many Nigerians who still think she is a man and is living an unnatural life.
