Olajumoke Orisaguna, does the name ring a bell? Well, if you have stuck around on social media long enough, it should. Olajumoke is the acclaimed beautiful woman who started out as a bread seller on the streets of Lagos but is now a fast rising fashion icon and model.
The Nigerian model who came into spotlight at about the time she worked with photographer TY Bello, has proven that she is aiming for the skies and in fact already reaching the clouds. In recent photo shoots, she modeled for David Tlale a South African fashion designer with a name that has gone beyond the shores of Africa. But beyond being celebrated by a renowned clothing line, the Nigerian beauty was branded with a worthy stamp by Africa’s hair brand Frika and popular model photographer Reze Bonna. The collaboration of these three fashion enthusiastic brands brought out the inner grace and beauty in Olajumoke. In the adorable photos she shared on her Instagram page, Olajumoke rocked a frilly yellow dress with raised African braids that reached to her face and dress.
She also wore a plain pink and green African inspired fabric matched with Afro hair just as she rocked a blue nylon jumpsuit. These beautifully combined attires won the admiration of many people who commended the designer as well as the beautiful model who wore the clothes well. The photo shoots were proudly featured in TW magazine.
The story of Olajumoke who happens to be a mother of two has inspired many people worldwide. Either by fate or coincidence, the lady who was born and bred in Osun state, moved to Lagos with one of her children to sell bread whilst leaving her husband behind in Ire, Osun.
Now, in the very heart of Johannesburg, South Africa, Olajumoke has been featured doing the very thing she knows to do best: capturing ‘accidental’ moments and motivating people to believe that the only way they can keep going is up.
