Astounding Model Discovered on Lagos Street: Meet Pillow-Seller, Bukola


From pillow-seller to a stunning global Model!

First, it was a bread hawker early this year. Now, another beautiful model has been discovered in one of the most unusual places. Magazine publisher and Photographer, Kelechi Amadi-Obi found Bukola selling pillows on the street of Lagos.

Kelechi Amadi-Obi said on his  Instagram page that She’s a diamond in the rough. He saw her selling pillows while photographing an American hip hop star, Jidenna.

He wrote:

“This is Bukola . Some weeks back I was shooting @jidenna on Broad street Lagos and in between takes I saw her across the street selling pillows . Had to call her and give my number. ” if you’re interested in modeling please give me a call” I said. Well she came to the studio and I called my number one MUA @bimpeonakoya and this is what we came up with. I think she will make a great model. What do you think?#africanbeauty #diamondintherough
