Oluwatobilola ‘Tobi’ Falana, the 3-year-old who won the hearts of Nigerians weeks ago after he photobombed a wedding shoot, is now a model!
The big reveal was made today by Olajumoke Orisaguna, the breadseller-turned-model, who rose to fame after she bombed the photo session curated by TY Bello.
She shared photos of Tobi’s first modelling gig–a wedding-themed photoshoot in which she plays the bride, while the little boy plays the ring bearer. And then she urged the boy’s fans to contribute to his education and welfare, as he comes from a very poor family.
“What’s better than letting other people’s light shine through yours?” Olajumoke shared on her page, adding, “Just like me, the magic of the camera has opened a new chapter for a little less privilege boy in Lagos (the city of possibilities). Tobi innocently photobombed a wedding shoot & Tobi has now got a chance at “Primary Education ” by @iamterryg but he needs your help to earn money for 1) His welfare 2) His secondary education & to help his family.”
Olajumoke continued in the note to her fans, saying, “Tobi has launched a modelling career & has been signed to @qtabyevents as a kid model. Please follow @oluwatobilobafalana& support him for the sake of good nature.”
