While we all appreciate the Cinderella story of the Nigerian bread seller turned model Olajumoke Orisaguna. The new model on the block was recently featured in a shoot for Lagos based fashion label April By Kunbi.

But it appears that not every one is loving the new and improved Olajumoke. Here is what the brand had to say about the shoot

”I normally wouldn’t comment on things like this…but To ALL the internet warriors that have criticized the makeup for this shoot (as seen on Jumoke’s page) …please NOTE that if Jumoke continues her career as a model, you will most likely not see her as the ‘bread seller’…she will work with a lot of designers with different ideas and looks for what story they are telling. She has to become a chameleon to project whatever she has been booked for. Makeup for photoshoot is usually more than the everyday ‘owambe’ face beat as it gets toned down with flash and lighting as seen in the finished photographs from @frankugahphotography

Enough of the “let her natural beauty show”, “use her natural hair”. @christinesignatures is an awesome, hardworking and dedicated make up artist. I am offended by the amount of hateful comments towards her and her craft. We need to learn to get our points across without been hateful. She followed the brief I gave her that was befitting to the story I was telling. 
Well done Christine! Jumoke looked amazing.#SpreadLoveNotHate #HappyValentinesDay
