Olakunbi of April By Kunbi explains the idea behind Olajumoke's val shoot

Olakunbi Oyelese of April By Kunbi today shared amazing photos of bread seller turned print model, Jumoke wearing one of her collections. The photo is from a Valentine postcard she did recently. Explaining, Kunbi wrote;
"It's no news that @Olajumoke__o's story literally broke the internet last week, and we were reminded about how amazing God's grace is and that he's still in the business of turning lives around and blessing us.. I'd wanted to do a Christmas postcard but my schedule last quarter of 2015 was beyond hectic (Not complaining o! Lol). So I decided to do a Val postcard instead...Not a lookbook/collection as a lot of blogs have reported.
I mentioned in my post last week that I'll definitely be booking her and I don't regret it one bit! It was a pleasure working with her and seeing her transform, taking instructions, moving like she's been doing it all her life....She's a natural. Jumoke's story has forced me to look closer at my surroundings. There's absolutely no doubt she is blessed but there are a lot of Olajumokes around us...Hardworking and just want to feed and help their families. You might not be able to get that pepper seller a modeling contract, but the next time she says the price for her pepper is ₦100, please don't price it to ₦30. I've been guilty of this, trust me. To think that someone around me works/walks in the sun all day and her profit at the end of the day is at most ₦500. I'm happy to have offered Jumoke her first paying modeling job. May it be the beginning of an amazing career for her. She might not be a runway model but she's perfect for print and editorial! May God help us all to make someone's life easier, someone's load a lot easier to carry."

She's truly a beautiful woman. And blessed too.

best opinion said...

Let her take constructive criticism please! This lady's makeup is too thick..the hair too silky and unreal. She looks waaaaay better with nude makeup and her natural hair. These photos make her look like she has inferiority complex and the clothes don't flatter her figure atall.

Oluwa Bukola said...

Nice one Kunbi, thanks alot. If Olajumoke can blend easily with what she 's doing now within a few days. We may as well hope she can be a runway model with some training. With the grace on her life she can be anyone we want her to be. May God bless people like you for believing in her.

The sky can be her stepping stone . After this exposure pls do not let her down. Keep her in the news. Keep featuring her. Until she excels. It is not only Kim Kardashian and Rihana that can spin a wave We can do it with Olajumoke for our 2016 media hype and personality of the year. Keep up the hype and get her a good manager until she becomes the most recognizable face of web Naija. Well done

dofag said...

Hi Linda, not sure if you will read this but is it possible to have a like button for the comments? Given that 99% of the commentators make trashy ones which depicts our maturity and reasoning as a people. I read some nice comments here which I would have liked to like..
