The ‘Agege’ bread seller-turned-model, Olajumoke Orisaguna, has rebuked people who reportedly claim celebrity photographer, TY Bello intends to exploit her innocence and make money off her.
Reports making the rounds have it that TY Bello who discovered Olajumoke when she appeared on the cover of her magazine shoot, is out to exploit and use her (Olajumoke).
Recall that TY Bello, upon the discovery, employed the bread seller as a model and changed her life for the better, ranging from a personal apartment to other benefits.
The chocolate-skinned model told the Punch that those alleging the photographer was ‘using’ her, are wicked as TY Bello has never collected a dime from her.
She said, “No, I don’t think so. Till date, none of them has collected any money from me or whoever signs me on any contract.
“Immediately I came on board, I had a bank account opened in my name and I’m the only signatory. Everywhere we go for any modelling contract, Aunty Azuka insists that cash should be paid to my account and not by hand.
“In fact, I am the one collecting from the two women. I would go to Mummy TY’s house, play, eat and she gives me and my children things. Even Aunty Azuka does that too whenever I visit her.
“They don’t have my money with them and I believe whoever said that must be wicked. These are people who God used to take me to where I am today.”
On what she has done with the money realized so far, she said “I am saving money for me and also for my children’s future. Mind you, modelling is not forever and it’s seasonal.
“I am saving my money because I don’t want to sell bread again and I don’t want my children to suffer anymore.”
Asked if she plans to make more children,” the mother of two said “Yes, but that will be a very long time from now. Right now, I have to care for my two kids and face my job and school.”
