I’m Having A Bakery Soon—Olajumoke Orisaguna

In the first part of this interview, the bread-seller turned
celebrity model, Olajumoke Orisaguna talked about her new found world of glitz
and glamour. Like Alice, she feels she is in Wonderland. In this concluding
part, she opens up on her private life, family and finance

you have any advice for girls who are in need of the kind of help you got?
Inasmuch as God brought help my way, I believe that every
woman must have something doing—you must not be idle. Acquire a skill, or get a
job. If I was at home, expecting someone to come and help me, God would not
have visited me the way He did. That day I photo-bumped Mummy TY’s photo shoot,
I was desperate to exhaust whatever was on my tray. Help does not come to you
when you don’t move.

people have said Azuka and TY Bello want to exploit your innocence and make
money off you…
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’ house, play, eats 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.
have you done with the money realized so far?
 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.
you having more children?
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.
are you coping with the school, I’m sure it’s a new experience for you?
Yes, it’s entirely new but I am coping. I attend school
everyday and I have good teachers. Even other students too have been nice to
me. While in school, I stay in the class, read my books and always ask
questions from the teachers. Friends? No, I don’t have friends there. I went
them to acquire knowledge and that is what I face squarely.
your new found lifestyle, you are still slim, is that deliberate?
Yes, I have a limit to what I eat because I have been told
there should not be much fat on me—I’m a model. I eat rice, amala, eba etc but these
have to be in moderation. Models are not supposed to be fat.
there dreams you nurse currently?
Yes, there are many of them. First, I want to prosper in
this modelling career and have my name mentioned when important brands are
assembled. Also, I want to have a bakery, where I can employ people and help
others too. Also, I want to establish a hairdressing salon. Moreover, I am
looking forward to being an actress.

you rub something on your body that particular day you photo-bumped for so much
attention to have been on you?
Me? Olajumoke rubbed something? Never! I thank God for that particular
day because I didn’t rub cream before rushing out of the bakery. Where would I
have had time for that when customers would be waiting for my bread? I have
never used fetish things in my life and never had the tiniest incision on my
body—I hate having marks on my body. My parents are good Christians and I am
sure the photo shoot took place just because of me. I don’t use
anything—spiritual or physical. I just pray to God and thank Him.
