Photos: You Will Never Guess This African Lady Used To Be A Man

Yea, the lady in red.
Her name is Titica. See more pictures of her after the cut.
She is bold, she is bright, she is beautiful and she is taking Angola by storm.
Some days ago, UNAIDS made Angola's transsexual singer Titica one of its
goodwill ambassadors
Born in Luanda as Teca Miguel Garcia, singer and dancer Titica adopted her female
persona four years ago following a breast enhancement operation in Brazil.
Now, at twenty-six, Titica is the new face of Angola's unique urban rap-techno
fusion music style known as "kuduro". Speaking to the BBC last year, during a
make-up session before filming the video for her current hit Olha o Boneco, which
features popular Angolan kizomba singer Ary, Titica said she was overcome with
her success.
"Thanks to God, I am very happy, it has taken a while to get here and involved a
lot of sacrifice but thanks to God, everything is going well for me.
I've been stoned, I've been beaten, and there is a lot of prejudice against me, a lot
of people show that. There is a lot of taboo,".
Despite that taboo, Titica appears to have no shortage of fans and most seem
more interested in her music than in her s*xuality.
