Behold! Nigeria’s transgender woman, Veso Golden Oke (photos)

Veso Golden Oke adds to the lean number of transgender women/men in the world born of Nigerian father and Ghanaian mother. Her parents are both Anglican faithful.
Of course she isn’t the first as we’ve have had a few others before she happened upon the scene.
Ms Oke lives in Ghana and is a makeup artist, hairstylist and an event planner. She used to be a guy, but decided to ditch his male features for that of a woman.
Born Messiah Oke Veso, Oke decided to switch gender in 2014 and to realise his dreams then moved from Nigeria.
Talking about her transition into a transgender in a new interview, Veso Golden refuses to accept he was born a male.
She maintains he was born as a young child with male genitals and the doctor announced to her mother that she was male.
But growing up, she realized she wasn’t fitting into the body she had and it was traumatizing. Until she discovered transitioning through an ex-girlfriend she was dating at the time.

Golden Veso also said she had dated girls before becoming a transgender because she thought using her penis, having sex with different girls will kill the feminine side of him. ‘Unfortunately’, it never worked.
Golden Veso hasn’t undergone surgery to remove her penis yet but she hopes to do that in the future and real soon.
In the meantime, she takes hormonal pills to naturally grow boobs just as women, grow hips, grow butts, get slimmer stomach and waistline. She’s also taken testosterone blockers that shrink her penis.
When asked how supportive her family was and has been through her transitioning process, Veso Golden said her family has been supportive.
In fact, Veso Golden fled Nigeria to Ghana on his mother’s advice and total support to prevent harassment and the 14 year jail term after former president Goodluck Jonathan signed the Same-Sex Marriage (Prohibition) Bill (SSMPA) into law in 2014.
