OSG Recap 2016: Olajumoke Orisaguna’s story that shook the world
This may well be one of the most inspiring stories of 2016.
An Agege bread hawker, Olajumoke Orisaguna, who photo-bombed Nigerian-British rapper Tinie Tempah during a photo shoot by singer and photographer TY Bello in Lagos State in February of this year, is now a model just as she made the front page of ThisDay Style Cover.
Realizing the potentials in the bread seller, TY Bello went off in search of Olajumoke, who was busy minding her own business when she was accidentally caught in the camera shoot.
This were the first words TY Bello said about the 27-year-old mother of two.
“BEATIFULX : WHO IS SHE.Everyone 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,”.
A few days later, She wrote: “So I found her …our beauty from the @tiniegram shoot and boy have I got a fantastic story to share with you all.
