Remember that pretty bread seller that stumbled onto TY Bello’s photoshoot?
And how three days later she was found and brought to TY Bello’s studio for an amazing makeover and photoshoot?
Olajumoke behind the scenes My first fashion shoot in Yoruba .. Joy [email protected] made a short documentary about this day .It was awesome working with such an amazing team @bimpeonakoya worked for free like she was paid a billion dollars . I love you with everything . @zubbydefinition oga zubs always making magic . We made that gold headpiece from scratch with gold bangles and a broach . Fitted like a crown!!!Thank you guys for sharing and being part of the story . I feel so fufilled and this whole process has blessed me beyond words . The meeting with @payporte was awesome today … Go Jumoke !!!!!!
Olajumoke Orisaguna, 27, mother of two, left Ire in Osun State to come to Lagos to try out a new hustle. She settled for bread selling, carrying her 14-month old daughter with her and leaving behind her 5 year old with her husband.
So it was just another day in the life, hawking bread around Sabo, Yaba in Lagos, that Olajumoke walked into destiny like this.
And she even made it to the cover of This Day’s Sunday style issue.
But what would it all be worth if after the glamorous makeover and photoshoot, she goes back to her not so hot Agege bread life?
Since she was learning hair styling back in Osun State and is willing to continue, she’s had an internship secured for her at Make Me, one of Lagos’ hottest salons for baby girls. Guess who also wants her on their next billboard? Payporte.
We can all agree its a miracle, but before you start singing ‘Baba Pick up’, have this in mind;
