      Same here!! In my Frank Edward’s voice ‘ When God speaks’. I have bee holding on tho that LYRICS for EVER & I’m NOT letting it GO. This is a story of where this Proverbs makes sense to me ‘ it’s not how far, but how well.’ So my of her mates/ friends may be married to a rich dude, educated guy but she was holding her FAM down by hawking bread to substain her kids & a MISTAKE of photobombing a pic changed her LIFE before the twinkle of an EYE. In Mary Mary’s voice *There’s a GOD*.

    And no one should complain about her accent.Afterall,we have the london accent,and the real cockney accent which pple hardly understands.Just saying# just focus on the story.

      Its strange that you are even thinking about the fact that her accent could be a problem and pointing it out thereby drawing focus to it. I never took notice of the accent until you mentioned it. I wish people will just see things on face value and leave it at that. I know you mean well but you may actually succeeded in creating a problem from the solution you proffered i.e, putting her accent on spot. So what is she has an accent or not?

      Yeah! It haff do. Why? Because she is not a Kardashian/Rich/Oyinbo sumborri.

      And as for me, No. It haff not do. Her story is the type that motivates and inspires people to believe in themselves and never to give up for their miracle is on the way.

    there’s just something endearing about jumoke’s face that i cant place my index finger on. Like Ty said, her story is so relatable and personal because for the average Nigerian, we strive so hard for that “”AaaHA!!! this is it moment””, that day we are suddenly discovered and our hard work begins to yield fruits.

    AWON models be beefing jumoke since 19 gogoro for this new events in her life. morale of Jumoke’s story is “you don’t have you be sleeping with sponsors and married men to get to the TOP”. God has a way of showing his real face when you never hexperrerit.

    Jumoke, i celebrate new era of stardom in your life. Your life has given millions across the globe a limelight that one day, very soon! The world is going to celebrates with me too to the extent to have a calendar date of “WORLD CARES DAY”. To the hopeless, there are more hope, just be focus, be positive, do not outcast yourself rather keep believing in God and in yourself that you will succeed! The most important things one can to do himself/herself is to make one’s life first better, then the other. Jumoke persisting on her normal routine and come across her fate just in one day. She didn’t idle rather industrious and now her work make a way for her.
