The story of Jumoke Orisaguna the bread seller who found fame after photobombing Tinie Tempah’s photoshoot has gone global.
Major news outlets all over the world have been celebrating her success ever since the news broke:
It’s a classic case of being in the right place at the right time. A young street seller oblivious to the scene ahead, her wares perched atop her head, photobombed a shoot and in that split second her life changed forever.
Jumoke Orisaguna is a mother of two who used to walk the streets of Lagos selling bread. Originally a hairstylist from Osun State, south west Nigeria, she was struggling to make ends meet, and left her husband and two children in their home town to become a street vendor in the economic capital.
Working from 2:30pm to 11:00pm selling bread, Jumoke would make less than $20 each day –with a profit of around $1.
Now she’s about to become a top model; signed to a modeling agency and gaining international fame and prominence.
This is how Metro reported it :
Olajumoke Orisaguna, 27, was working as a breadseller in Lagos, Nigeria, when she unintentionally walked through a photoshoot of Tinie Tempah in his home country.
Photographer Ty Bello didn’t think much of Olajumoke or her casual photobomb until later, when she was going through and editing the photos.
That’s when she noticed that she’d accidentally taken a truly incredible shot – and that Olajumoke was someone pretty special.
Bello immediately set out to track down Olajumoke, writing on her Instagram: ‘Every one has been asking if this lady is a model… It was just perfect coincidence…
