He is popularly known for his presence on the social media apps Snapchat and Instagram.
Reacting to the bill, the cross dresser via the micro- blogging platform, Twitter listed all the things wrong with Nigeria.
According to the male barbie, the Lawmakers should be quick in their decisions since cross-dressing amongst other things is the only major issue of concern the government needs to tackle at this time.
