The viral physically challenged street hawker who gain popularity after renowned Nigerian comedian and skit maker Brain Jotter posted her video for publicity, is now facing accusations of deception of being a cross dresser after attracting the attention of Afrobeats Superstar Davido, and Osun State Governor Ademola Adeleke.
on Wednesday November 8, a claim was made, suggesting that the hawker’s real name is Sultan. The claim was also supported with photographs of Sultan dressed in male school uniforms and attire.
Shegzeblog gathered that a group who previously helped the hawker insisted that the hawker is a guy who goes to extreme efforts, taping up his genitalia and donning fake boobs to masquerade as a woman.
Following the reports hovering online, some Good Samaritans rented an apartment for the hawker and provided makeup gear to help establish a different path, but the hawker’s heart is set on swindling people on the streets.
Eniola started to gain attention after Brain Jotter, the skit maker, shared a video wherein he gifted her the sum of N400,000 to start up her makeup business.
The skit maker said he was on his way for a video shoot when he saw the lady hawking bottled water on the street of Lagos and decided to assist her.
During their chat, Brain Jotter discovered that Eniola is also a makeup artist.
Eniola revealed that she is a native of Osun state but left her hometown to make ends meet in Lagos.
Reacting to the video via X on Tuesday, Davido drew the attention of Adeleke, his uncle, to Eniola. He also asked for her location.
Responding to Davido’s post, Adeleke said he has “directed my office” to get in touch with Eniola.
The governor said he would assist Eniola “in advancing her education or improving her makeup skills”.
Adeleke also commended Eniola’s dedication to honest work, which he said was truly “inspiring”.
