Cross-dressing has become a thing in Nigeria these days. This is especially because of the fancy lifestyle many involved in the industry display on social media. These men who wear women’s attires have also gained social media fame with their style of dressing, even going to the extent of surgically enhancing their bodies to look more feminine.

In this article, we will profile some of the most popular crossdressers on the Nigerian social media space. It’s not like these crossdressers have seen it easy in Nigeria, most of them have faced serious opposition.

In a recent update by the Nigeria Police Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, the police don’t have the power to arrest any citizen of Nigeria for cross-dressing.
Adejobi stated this during a Channels TV interview.

“Well, there are some cases that are always very difficult to prove. Fine, I am not ruling out that we have many of them. Let us be reasonable, you can’t have someone you want to prosecute without having credible evidences against them.

“I have not read anywhere where crossdressing is an offence in Nigeria. But if you, for instance, you want to prove a case of rape, rape has points to prove. If any one of those points is missing, you may lose your case in court.

“Let us be reasonable, you can’t arrest somebody you want to prosecute without having credible evidence against and as such, cross dressing is not a crime yet in Nigeria.

“Some of them that are into crossdressing, the allegation is that they are into something else. That’s where the problem lies.

“We need to have enough proof, credible evidence to prove that they are actually into that. All those offences are natural offences in Nigeria and they are punishable under our laws.”
