This Beautiful African Musician Was Born A Man

October 16, 2013

Africa is finally embracing transgenders and integrating them into the society. Some parts of Africa that is.
Whatever your bias may be Titica Miguel, the beautiful damsel here has been described as a brave, bright and gorgeous lady. In Angola, she is an enigma and UNAIDS has made Angola’s transsexual singer Titica one of its goodwill ambassadors.

Titica Miguel Garcia who was born in Luanda adopted her female persona four years ago following a chest enhancement operation in Brazil.

Now, at the age of 26, Titica is the new face of Angola’s unique urban rap-techno fusion music culture called “kuduro”.

Speaking to the BBC last year, Titica confessed that she was overwhelmed 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,” she says

Despite that taboo, Titica appears to have no shortage of fans and most seem more interested in her music than in her sexuality.
