Olajumoke Orisaguna who recently broke the internet with her grass to grace story is constantly gaining more prominence in leaps and bounds, as the young woman has now been featured on CNN.
The famous bread seller tuurned overnight model, Olajumoke Orisaguna, has been featured on CNN.
Olajumoke and TY Bello, in an Interview with CNN's Stephanie Busari, shared the story of how photo bombing a shoot with International star, Tinie Tempah, has changed her life in ways no one thought was possible. She was a bread seller, now she is a model and is on her way to gaining International fame and prominence.
TY Bello, talking about how she found Olajumoke said she was photographing UK popstar Tinie Tempah when the bread seller walked into the shot.
"She seemed a little confused," said Bello. "Some people were asking her to walk past really quickly, others were asking her to stay, she was just in limbo. I said 'is it ok to take your photograph?' And she nodded ok."
"I didn't think I made a great image," Bello said, but that once she posted the shots on social media, interests in Jumoke exploded.
"When the photographs landed for the first time on social media, everyone immediately thought she was a model,"she explained. "No one believed she just walked past. It occurred to me that if everyone thought she should be a model then maybe she should be one, then the search for her began."
A contract with Few Models followed and soon Jumoke's face will appear on billboards after landing a lucrative contract.
Olajumoke who was teary-eyed throughout the interview explained that she never expected her fortunes to turn around the way it did.
She said: "I never expected that this could ever happen to me. My friends have told me they saw me on TV and they are really happy. My parents cannot believe their own child can become such a success. They are all so happy."
TY Bello explained that the reason why Olajumoke's story connected with everyone is because everybody has a dream and is looking for that magical break
She said: "I think the reason why the story connects with everyone is because everybody has dreams. This is a very very tough time, especially in my country. Everyone is looking for that magical break I don't think anyone planned this. I think this is definitely divine because the way people have connected with it is phenomenal. Its a phenomenal story"
