While on a photoshoot with singer and photographer Ty Bello, a local street seller made her way into Tempah’s frame and pretty much stole the whole show.

Ty Bello, knowing talent when she sees it, set out on a mission to find this young lady who photographed so well. And find her they did.

Getting that bread.

The 27yo woman, Olajumoke Orisaguna, introduced herself to social media about a week ago, and then got to work building her portfolio soon after.

So I found her …our beauty from the @tiniegram shoot and boy have I got a fantastic story to share with you all. Right here is an amazing 27yr old mother of two , Jumoke Sunday with an incredible life story .I called on three amazing artists @bimpeonakoya for beautiful makeup .. @zubbydefinition for hair and @emaedosio to make a short documentary about her .. Every one gave a yes !on the spot . They were all at the studio within an hour and we had the most amazing shoot with her. I’ve also spoken to a few people about the best way to help move her forward and reunite her with her family . … The process has already begone and I’ll figure out the best way to have anyone who wants to be part of the journey .Meeting and photographing her has inspired us all and we can’t wait for the good that will come to her from all of this to unfold . She doesn’t speak English well but here ,she was explaining how she found us . I had sent an assistant , as many of you advised ,to leave a message with the people in the area where we photographed her… So here she is .. #Olajumoke #tybellophotography #findingjumoke #thebeginning

By Monday, she was signed to Few Modeling Agency in Nigeria, and if by the looks of her Instagram account, which got over 4K followers in 24hours, a star is definitely born.
