Breadseller who photobombed Tinie Tempah’s Shoot with Ty Bello found – The Remarkable Story



Tinie Tempah Ty Bello
It all started with this photo…
Ty Bello recently photographed Tinie Tempah on the street of Lagos for a ThisDay Style cover feature. During the shoot, this lady was walking around with her goods (Bread) for sale and happened to walk into a shot.

It was such a great image that Ty decided to include it in the final selection.

Everyone started asking if she was a model…

Ty responded
BEATIFUL MISS X:WHO IS SHE.?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 #lagos

Today, everything came together as she was found
So I found her …our beauty from the @tiniegram shoot and boy have I got a fantastic story to share with you all. Right here is an amazing 27yr old mother of two , Jumoke Sunday with an incredible life story .I called on three amazing artists @bimpeonakoya for beautiful makeup .. @zubbydefinition for hair and @emaedosio to make a short documentary about her .. Every one gave a yes !on the spot . They were all at the studio within an hour and we had the most amazing shoot with her. I’ve also spoken to a few people about the best way to help move her forward and reunite her with her family . … The process has already begone and I’ll figure out the best way to have anyone who wants to be part of the journey .Meeting and photographing her has inspired us all and we can’t wait for the good that will come to her from all of this to unfold . She doesn’t speak English well but here ,she was explaining how she found us . I had sent an assistant , as many of you advised ,to leave a message with the people in the area where we photographed her… So here she is .. #Olajumoke #tybellophotography #findingjumoke #thebeginning

    When God orders your steps…………… This is a perfect example. God doesn’t come down to directly answer your prayers, he sends helpers to you. And creates the exact meeting point and time for you to meet your helper. Lord pls order my own steps, so I’m at d right place at the right time………… Now I hope this girl uses this opportunity well, bcos a lot of dese ppl are so used to d streets,it will keep calling them…….. especially as Ty mentioned reuniting her with her family. I hope for d very best for her.

    Guys, lets all be inspired to reach out.
    Take a minute from time to time to pause and look around your street corners, across your fence, the guy sleeping in his marwa, the mallam/ opc at your junction and reach out to them…God bless Nigeria….we are moving forward
    Tip: you can determine to help one person each month – it can be donating a dozen noodles to helping out to pay a child’s school fees. In this lies true greatness & fulfillment…

    Why don’t I buy this “photo bombing” story. Looks planned to me. She might not have been part of the original idea, but that photo does not look like her presence was unintended, sorry. I could be wrong.

      Smh at you. Conspiracy theorist. Just celebrate with her or don’t comment.

      February 4, 2016 at 6:04 am

      Author unknown….Quite sad, you’re a cynic…..and your cynicism has nothing good to offer us. Apart from indirectly calling the narrator a liar, It negates the beauty behind the story that dreams come true and so your cynicism is a hope killer. Please take it elsewhere. I choose to believe the story and everything good that comes with it.

      Please take your negativity else were, if you don’t have something to say, don’t say anything. Also, you can help and invest in her life, that way, you will know if this was planned or not.

      I actually like the picture very much, “photo bombing” or not. It just didn’t look like that to me. Maybe we’re confusing what photobombing actually means, as you’re confused about what negativity means.

    You are definitely a bitter person. Keep up with your bitterness and you may not find help anywhere because you expect that help comes in a certain way. Goat somebody. Sorry I also may be wrong.

      Maybe period? Or maybe you have been hurt recently….this can make you overtly reactive to suuch story to the point of “crying uncontrollably “

    • Mayy

      February 4, 2016 at 10:37 am

      Glow, you’re quite interesting. You don’t have to be on your period or face certain challenges to shed tears over an inspiring or sensitive story like this. Anyone who’s emotional can and will shed tears of joy after reading this story. Take your bitter sarcasm elsewhere if you have nothing better to say. Can’t stand unnecessary sarcastic remarks.

    Good luck to her, that’s if I believe the story. 1: so there was no one to control traffic during the shoot. 2: who poses like if they are not aware of what’s on ground. 3: the dress. Just my opinion sha. Please post

    • Ekbasis

      February 4, 2016 at 3:05 pm

      1. Its a local road, there is rarely traffic.
      2. TY was doing her photoshoot, Jumoke was carrying her bread, you think with all the problems in this world, she is thinking about the camera someone is holding. She saw the guy walking, she smiled at him
      3. You really do think TY is that jobless to be making up this story, shaking my head.
      4. The gown or bubu she is wearing is a basic wear, she wears it often, she even said in the video that she wore it, the day someone asked her if she knew TY was looking her.
      5. Smile and be happy for someone.

I see them everyday in ojaaba in Ibadan..please don’t be gullible.

    The problem with we Nigerians is that we expect every1 2 av dsame opinion as us. We start howling abuses at any1 wit opinion contrary 2 ours. There are 2 sides 2 every story n bcos I was not there at d making of this story, I only get 2 read wat is written abt it. Whether I choose 2 blv it or nt shd b respected as within my right. Why else do I av a brain if I’m nt allowed 2 use it? Those who blv d story av reasons 2 blv it but they shd also respect those who don’t bcos whether we like it or nt, they also av genuine reasons nt 2 blv it.
    Only a fool believe a word can only av 1 meaning. I beg us 2 please learn 2 respect other’s views in matter even if they clash with ours. You can always have decent conversation.
