Following a video posted by a social media influencer and comedian about a disabled make-up artist hawking in the streets to raise funds, attention has been drawn to cross-dressing make-up artist Eniola after being called out for impersonation and intent to deceive. 

The video posted on social media was supposed to be inspirational, drawing attention to the virtues of hard work, despite disabilities until an organization that had rendered help to the con artists called him out for trying to obtain under false pretence. 

Eniola who appeared like a woman at the time the video was made, where she solicited funds for and advertised her business, turned out to be a man, who had been helped similarly in the past.
