ENGLISH RAPPER Tinie Tempah recently did a photoshoot in his ancestral country of Nigeria.
As he walked the streets of Lagos, a bread-seller wandered into shot, and photographer Ty Bello captured the moment:
Bello was taken with the woman and decided to track her down, offering to help her build a modelling portfolio. She wrote on Instagram:
Everyone has been asking if this lady is a model… It was just the perfect coincidence… 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.
It didn’t take her too long to find the bread-seller, named Olajumoke Orisaguna.
Bello shot her for the cover of a Nigerian magazine, where she can be seen posing with her 14-month-old daughter:
A few days later, Orisaguna was pictured signing a contract at a Nigerian modelling agency – she’s already landed her first job with clothing company April By Kunbi.
A real life fairy tale. Congrats, Olajumoke!
