Here’s How to Turn Your Photobombs Into Modeling Contracts

Since Tyra Banks started scoping out her ANTM contestants from their Instagram photos, it’s kind of become one of the more popular, but unexpected ways to “get discovered” as a model these days. Justin Bieber once creeped hardcore on an underage Spanish girl’s Instagram, and overnight she found herself with a modeling contract. Now, same thing might be happening for this masterpiece of a human being who photobombed Tinie Tempah‘s Nigerian photoshoot.

The English musician posted the photo from his trip to his parent’s home country, taking a page from Justin Bieber’s book, captioned the photo:

Who is she?!

But continues more eloquently:

Every one has been asking if this lady is a model .. It was just perfect coincidence … She just happened to be walking by while I photographed . It happened so fast .She definitely SHOULD be a model. .. I’m happy to help her build a portfolio if she’s interested .She’s so beautiful and photographed so well. I’ll find a way to track her down somehow . You guys can also help

Different though, Tempah wants to help this girl pursue a career, Bieber was looking for some arm candy. A week later, the woman, Olajumoke Orisaguna, was found and photographed for a Nigerian magazine, Style, by photographer Ty Bello. Before being discovered, Orisaguna had made some serious decisions. Apparently, according to Bello ,she was:

a hair stylist from Ire in Osun state but not making enough profit between she and her husband, a sliding door installer in from same village, to care for their two young children. At the invitation of a distant relative who knew someone operating a bakery, she relocated to Lagos with her 14-month-old daughter to give bread hawking a try, leaving her husband and older 5-year-old behind.

She has since been signed by a local Nigerian agency where hopefully, she is paid her fair share, where hopefully she is reunited with her husband and son, where hopefully she has new opportunities for herself.
