Olajumoke Orisaguna, the bread seller turned model has returned to classroom.
The lovely mother of two whose picture went viral when she stumbled on TY Bello’s set in February this year has wisely started a program with Poise Nigeria, a Nigerian etiquette and finishing school run by Mavis Isibor.

In only a few months, she became a brand ambassador for Payporte, and scored modeling gigs with fashion brands like Salma Guzel. She has also been interviewed on CNN, and has become the most goggled person in Nigeria.
Recall that sequel to catching the eye of the Nigeria, nay the world, the budding model was advised to acquire some form of education to avoid being taken advantage of, and ensure that her career does not grind to an abrupt halt.
As a concerned Nigerian undergraduate of the University of Lagos; Nneka Ibemesi put it, “Without an education, she will not go far, and as it is people are just telling her what to do, the day she demands for what she really wants, her career will end,” Continuing her commentary, she said,
“Since she started making headlines, many people had predicted that her stardom might be short-lived, as she does not have the proper training to sustain where she has been placed.”
Ibemesie stated her fear of the tendency of extortionists to use an ignorant Jumoke to further their own agenda, without necessarily having her interests at heart.
Nneka concluded, “I guess people just want to use her illiteracy to make money and gain publicity.”
