Photo Of Bukola The Pillow Seller Reminds Us That Diamonds Come From The Rough

 This year seems to be a year of  ”grass to grace” for Nigerian street hawkers. Heaven smiled at Bukola when she was discovered by publisher of Style Mania magazine and Creative Photographer, Kelechi Amadi-Obi.

Kelechi Amadi-Obi, who compared the pillow seller, Bukola to a diamond in the rough, said on his  Instagram page that he saw her while shooting an American hip hop star, Jidenna.

He wrote this on Instagram page,

“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
