Videos: I hawked "pure water" in Mushin market- President Buhari's personal photographer, Bayo Omoboriowo, shares his inspiring story

In video shared by celebrity photographer, T.Y Bello, President Buhari's personal photographer, Bayo Omoboriowo, shared stories of how he hawked sachet water otherwise known as pure water at a market in Mushin, just to make some money for his family. The throwback photo on the left is him holding his first professional camera in 2011.



"Yes I hawked pure water in Mushin, Ojuwoye market. They were calling me Bayo pure water because i shout Buy your pure water and so they called me Bayo pure water. This was when I was still in primary school. At a point I was ashamed because I would see my schoolmates and their parents driving them home after school"he said

BAYO OMOBORIOWO: Awesome day sharing stories over food with @bayoomoboriowo official photographer to @muhammadubuhari . I wish there was a way to document all the amazing conversations that happen on our roof . And all these awesome people that come up there so often Bayo's presence was a blessing and his love for Nigeria is contagious.I was looking at him thinking .. hmm .. could it be possible that this young man is being groomed by God to lead this nation someday . BAYO- PURE WATER!πŸ˜‚It's amazing to look back and be able to laugh at our journey . As we go along we get a clearer picture of where God is taking us and we are no longer ashamed to share the challenges that were difficult .. painful or even embarrassing . Those stories don't define us but we proudly own them. They're all important in building our identity... so we're thankful for them. It was a more inspiring day for my assistant @shutterjenius on the left . ( killing that bone πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ)Earlier in the year she was in a near fatal accident on her way to one of Bayo's #unabashed photography events . I know that Adelodun absolutely adores him so it was fun to have her get a personal unabashed session . Bayo !!! Thank you for being so fun and inspiring .. we have waaaay too much in common ... I love you and I'm so proud of you.

Sold pure water, now in Aso. First professional camera in 2011, Aso Rock number 1 photographer in 2017. Now, this is inspiring. I like such success stories that are clear and instructive. One lesson I've learnt here: it may be better for kids from lower class families in present day Nigeria to master a vocation rather than chasing "miseducation". May God continue to take you higher Bayo.
