Nigeria’s First Muslim Transgender Habeeb Lawal Now Known As Noni Salma Shares New Photos
Former Nigerian Alfa and devout Muslim, Habeeb Lawal, as you already know now prefers to be identified as a lady since relocating to the US. Noni Salma as he now prefers to be known, is Nigeria’s first Muslim transgender. Only recently, Salma expressed regrets in an interview admitting she would have made the transition to a full blown lady earlier. She said:
My 20s was just full of emptiness. The only regrets I have is that I wished I transitioned way earlier. I wish I did it when I was in my teens”. Noni says she was convinced she was a girl when she was about 5/6 years old
When I was 5/6 years old, I was convinced I was a girl and then people started telling people me about it
My problem is not about them putting out a story about me. It’s about how they put out the story, Nigerian man turns himself into a woman”. I have never been a man. If you want to find out what transgender is, you need to find out. Identity varies. There are people who their identity matches the one they were assigned at birth. Good for them. There are people whose identity doesn’t match with the sex they were assigned at birth
