Sex change - a change in a person's physical sexual characteristics, typically by surgery and hormone treatment - has really caught on in Nigeria.
Here are four Nigerian men who have undergone sex change surgery and have transformed into women:
1. Miss Sahhara

2. Stephanie Rose
She was born Dapo Adaralegbe and was educated at the Obafemi Awolowo University in Nigeria. Dapo said he was expelled from school over his identity crisis and so travelled to Europe for sex change.
