We might just have found the unintentional sequel to the inspiring story of Olajumoke, the bread seller turned top model.
Well, in this particular story, the would-be model is Bukola, not Olajumoke; the photographer is the talented Kelechi Amadi-Obi, not TY Bello; the photoshoot was for hip-hip artist Jidenna, not Tinie Tempah – and instead of Agege bread, pillows were involved.
Just like the story of Olajumoke – that the world couldn't get enough of – the beautiful Bukola was simply in the right place at the right time. A few weeks back Amadi-Obi was shooting Nigeria-born hip-hop artist, Jidenna, on Broad Street, Lagos and in between takes he saw Bukola across the street selling pillows – and that was that.
An excited Amadi-Obi, said on his Instagram:
"I had to call her and give her my number. She came to the studio and I called my number one make-up artist, Bimpe Onakoya, and this is what we came up with."
While we might not have gotten a picture as iconic as the viral one of Olajumoke photobombing Tinie Tempah, we definitely got another beauty worth obsessing over.
