Popular Nigerian Model, Olajumoke Orisaguna, has no doubt made history in Nigeria, as she is the first model to get instant fame which also brought her several endorsements within a week into stardom. Currently, the 27-year old is now the “Most Searched Person” in Nigeria, according to Google.com.
Recall that Olajumoke was discovered by TY Bello, Nigerian’s foremost celebrity photographer, who mistakenly captured the young lady, who at the moment was hawking breads on the streets of Lagos. That photograph broke the internet as everyone focused on the photo bomber instead of the British/Nigerian rapper, Tinie Tempah, who was actually having a photo session for ThisDay style.
Since then the bread-seller-turned-model has become an ambassador for several brands. From modelling contracts to various endorsement deals, there’s no stopping her. Olajumoke Orisaguna was born and bred in Ire, Osun state. She is a trained hairdresser and is married to an artisan named Sunday Orisaguna. They have two children, and recently relocated to Lagos, after Olajumoke came to limelight.
With the help of TY Bello, Olajumoke has secured a modelling career for herself. She has signed a couple of modelling contracts with both local and international companies as well as received trainings and internships. A top Nigerian bank, Standard IBTC, has offered to sponsor the education of Olajumoke’s children while another company took charge of her accommodation in Lagos.
In February, CNN featured the model on an interview, where she expressed her profound transformation as “unbelievable.” Despite not speaking English, Olajumoke has been invited to several events as a motivational speaker. Among other achievements, she is the face of PayPorte, Shirley’s Confectionery, and now google’s most shared personality in Nigeria.
