Breadseller turned celebrity, Olajumoke Orisaguna
 
It seems like the celebrated bread seller turned model and celebrity Olajumoke Orisaguna has vanished from social media. Alarm about her sudden quietness was raised yesterday by top filmmaker, Charles Novia,  who expressed concern that she might have been used and dumped.

“We don’t hear anymore about the Bread Seller turned model, Olajumoke Orisaguna,” Novia wrote.
 
“I wrote at the beginning of the media frenzy over her that she was just the flavour of the moment for a public looking for sweet distraction from realities in the polity and that she would be discarded by that same public and media once the curiosities wane. It’s happening now, innit?” he added.
 
The breadseller came to the spotlight after photo bombing a shoot by popular photographer, TY Bello. Olajumoke's rise to prominence was rapid. Stories about her circulated all over the country and beyond. She was later signed by Beth Model Africa after her story became international headlines.
 
But since confirming that she plans to launch her foundation, the “Olajumoke Orisaguna foundation” after she reportedly gave out N200,000 to some 40 breadsellers, nothing has been heard of her again. Her social media handles seem deserted as no recent activity forthcoming.
 
Some Nigerians have accused corporate agencies from benefiting from her sudden fame and dumping her like a hot coal. Her Instagram page was last updated six weeks ago.
 
Dino Cee a facebook user summed it up this way: “The whole thing looks like a staged managed conspiracy drama but if it really was a true story then I think the girl should be blamed for not advancing herself using the opportunity she got from that overnight fame, I mean that she should have used that opportunity to push herself into the Nollywood or try by any means to release a music album so as to remain relevant in the public circle, modeling is a career that you are only relevant when you are sought-after and it is very difficult for deals to come by all the time but in the Nollywood at least she can always get something with that quick fame even if it is a sub or extras if her charges are moderate, in the music she can always make herself an album anytime she wants more especially this days that lyrics has no meaning but rhythms to Nigerians.”
