An old video of a crossdresser from Imo state, Nigeria in the 1970s is currently trending on social media platforms.
According to reports, the crossdresser identified as Area Scatter is one of the few crossdressers who made it into the mainstream media.
He was a musician who played melodic music with his ornamental thumb piano, singing in a rich voice and moving his body in an unusual yet that fascinated a lot of people ranging from street urchins to royalty.
It was also gathered that the transgender was a civil servant who disappeared into the wilderness at some point during the years of the war, only to re-emerge 7 months and 7 days later, as a woman.
Area Scatter claimed that the gods gave him supernatural powers which he used to enhance his musical talent and become more feminine.
In the video shared online, Area Scatter can be seen dressed in a top and wrapper with feminine shoes on and his hair plaited with thread.
He is seen walking to a palace in the east, in which he performs in the presence of the king who seemed pretty impressed by him.
