Nigerian Bread Seller Accidentally Photobombs Popstar And Gets Modeling Contract

People say fairytale are just for kids, but when they happen in real life, everyone feels the magic. Recently, English musician Tinie Tempah and photographer and singer Ty Bello were doing a photoshoot in Nigeria when they were accidentally photo-bombed by a bread seller. The catch? The photo was perfect, and Bello was enchanted.

“Who is she? Every one has been asking if this lady is a model… It was just perfect coincidence,” wrote Bello on Instagram. The search was on. 27-year-old Olajumoke Orisaguna, mother of two, was eventually found, but the story doesn’t end there. With Bello’s help, she scored a modeling contract, and was just featured on the cover of This Day Style!

I hope she knows what she went into. And I hope that world treats her with all the kindness it is capable of... Modelling is a cruel and ungrateful job. She is gorgeous, clearly with a good head on her shoulders. I hope she managed to get out a contract that actually benefits her, and not just the modelling company. Good luck in all you do, you beautiful girl! xx

She was walking around with bread on her head all day - I think becoming a model is a step up career-wise.

I'm curious whether the haircut was her idea or not. I think she was gorgeous with the long, curly hair.

Most likely a wig.

I think it really is a beautiful story. She's a working woman, taking care of her children and got an opportunity a lot of women only dream of. But she's going to be Photoshopped like all the other models! Don't get me wrong, I love using Photoshop, but a lot of models are beautiful without it.
