In a case of perfect coincidence, Jumoke Orisagauna a mother of two was walking the streets of Lagos selling bread when she walked into a photo shoot by photographer Ty Bello. Bello was photographing British musician Tinie Tempah when Orisagauna walked into the shot.
Bello was immediately struck by the woman’s beauty and took to Instagram after the shoot in an attempt to find out more about her. “I’m happy to help her build a portfolio if she’s interested,” she typed to her followers, adding, “I’ll find a way to track her down somehow.” The woman was later identified as Olajumoke Orisaguna, a local bread-seller.

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.
