You are unique!
You are special! Do not allow the world tell you otherwise!
Do not look in the mirror and wish you looked different.
Do not change your heart to suit the expectations of the world.

Do not stifle your voice because they do not like your words.
You were created for a reason.
Look in the mirror and figure out for yourself who you are.
Do not attempt to please the world.
Their adulation lasts only for a moment.

Go for it! Take that leap of faith.
The world will abuse you. They will criticise you.
The world will not see beauty in your mess.
They will not see all your dreams as golden.

Go ahead, be brave, go it alone.
Alone is not so bad.
You have a host of angels behind you.

There was a woman who was hawking her wares, she was selling ‘Agege bread’ on the streets of Lagos, and her image was coincidentally captured alongside Tinie Tempah. TY Bello coined her ‘beautiful miss x’, and begun her search for the mystery model. Yesterday, TY Bello unveiled the face of this woman on the cover of ‘Thisday Style Magazine’; her name is Olajumoke Orisaguna. A simple, hardworking woman whose future changed while she was busy attending to her life, working at what her hands found to do. TY Bello was her destiny helper, but Olajumoke was not idle waiting for life to happen to her.
