Olajumoke Orisaguna has changed her modeling agency from Few Models run by Bolajo to Beth Models run by Elohor Aisien.

The announcement was made via Olajumoke’s Instagram page.

She wrote:

New Management for the ‘Olajumoke Brand’ @bethmodelafricaThanks to my lawyer and the Best PR @zukiliciouz for this, grateful for the time with my previous management! Can’t wait to begin this journey, we are starting up with plans for the “Olajumoke Orisaguna foundation” details soon #WatchThisSpace #olajumokeorisaguna #Grateful #BethManagement.

According to reports from Genevieve Magazine, Olajumoke changed her agency because of disagreements between the modeling agency and her lawyer.

In an exclusive chat with Genevieve Mag, the CEO of Few Models, Bolajo revealed:

I wanted to manage Olajumoke as a personality while grooming her to be a model but we kept having issues with her Lawyer. He insisted they wanted to be in charge of her endorsement deals. We has signed an agreement but he couldn’t seem to remember what the agreement contained and kept changing things. The agreement was with him for over a week and then he comes back to say he thought he removed the personality clause. We would book her for clients and by the time we wake up, her team will say she can’t do this or that.

I was thinking of the future, after all the hype has died down and the endorsements wane, what will be left for Olajumoke ? We booked her for fitness classes to help her tone up, we bought her clothes and paid for her make up for all her interviews, we paid for her transport, model training, we worked on skincare to make her look good, paid for test shoots, got her an international passport, chauffeured her everywhere so I could be a buffer and she wouldn’t feel lost in her interactions.

Everyone with a strong understanding of how the industry works have commended us on our efforts.

She has only been with us for about three months, even for top professional models it’s never that easy. My plan was to work on her and then release new photos of a rebranded professional model to the world who can last long in the industry after all the hype has died down. Clients know what they want, you can’t force someone on a client simply because her story went viral. She has had jobs here and there.

Though we’ve been around for a only a little while we’ve done very well. Our models get called for international work, from South Africa to New York to Milan. Vogue recently announced 5 of our models as top models to watch out for in Africa. We have been acknowledged by IMG International who have commended the standard of our models.Our Models go through rigorous training from fitness, to skincare to runway training.

Agencies have to spend money to brush up models and that is the stage Jumoke is right now unless she wants to remain as a personality.Nothing is happening in the industry at the moment. She is just three months in and we were working on brushing her up to International Standard.

Yes, I can confirm that Olajumoke’s management has been changed to Beth Models run by Elohor Aisien. There have been issues from day one between the lawyer and Few Models Management. We’ve has several meetings to resolve the issue but when the Lawyer insisted we changed and tried to bring someone else in I had to recommend Elohor because I was afraid she would be managed by someone who wouldn’t know what to do with her.

    Una don start???
    To be honest I think she will get further with Beth… I’m sure her lawyer was doing what was in her best interest, Agents can be scavengers, but Few Agency did a good job too.
    Best of luck and may your light continue to shine.

    Lmao. Clearly industry / friendship politics.
    Elohor was the reason Azuka got the interview with Tiwa Savaga. Clearly Azuka owes her one. And this is the one being paid bck. I’m sure the blackmail came before the interview “how could u give her to few models” etc. They are also ‘friends’

    Few model management I have to admit I have noticed because they are actually pushing. I can’t go on my explore page on Instagram and not see one of their training classes or boot camps. I also believe it is run by a young group. It’s impressive

    On the other hand knowing Beth in the industry for a while. She has the contacts to make ‘one or two things happen’ but it is all short lived and the hype will die. I hope she doesn’t start carrying Olajumoke for any yatch party with her other ‘models’ ?
    Good luck to all parties. Eloho don’t use this girl for your selfish reasons. Genuinely do wht God ha put you in her life to do and u will be blessed. Otherwise ?

    “We has signed an agreement but he couldn’t seem to remember what the agreement contained and kept changing things. The agreement was with him for over a week and then he comes back to say he thought he removed the personality clause.”.

    I’m a bit confused about this. If you signed an agreement then you should have a copy of the agreement and show him what it contains if he couldn’t remember! He shouldn’t be able to simply come back and change his mind on the terms. Small / Medium sized businesses need to take their legal contracts more seriously.
