From Selling Agege Bread On The Streets Of Lagos To The Covers Of ThisDay Style, Olajumoke Inspiring Story



Estimated Reading Time: <1

For those who missed it, here’s where Olajumoke’s story started. Olajumoke Orisaguna is a young woman who was selling bread on the streets while Ty Bello was photographing Tinie Tempah for a ThisDay Style cover shoot.

When the photos from Tinie’s shoot were published on social media, everyone kept asking about “the model”. Ty explained that she was not a model and was selling bread on the streets at the time of the shoot.

A social media campaign to find her kicked off. Once she was found, Ty along with Bimpe Onakoya and Zubby Definition, made the 27 year old mother of 2 over for the shoot which we get to see today according to BellaNaija, a documentary is to follow..

What an amazing and inspiring story from grass to grace…

TY Bello replied “BEATIFULX : WHO IS SHE.Every one has been asking if this lady is a model .. It was just perfect coincidence … She just happened to be walking by while I photographed . It happened so fast .She definitely SHOULD be a model. .. I’m happy to help her build a portfolio if she’s interested .She’s so beautiful and photographed so well. I’ll find a way to track her down somehow . You guys can also help #lagos #doesanyonerecognizeher #okunorentwins #tinietempah @thisdaystyle #lagos #phaseone”
