Nigerian young ‘un dubbed ‘most beautiful girl in the world’


Social media went into a frenzy after pictures of an “angelic” five-year-old girl was posted on Instagram.

Photographer Mofe Bamuyiwa from Nigeria, who shared the stunning photos of little Jare Ijalana, shot her against a plain background to bring attention to her beautiful, big eyes and smooth melanin skin.

Oh yes she’s human ! She’s also an angel ! “J A R E “ I want to portray the interception between her childhood and adulthood so both stay timeless ! I could have made her smile and make her laugh out loud but I put her in their natural moments for us to see through their eyes ! Posing them as adults ! Was my trick to create it a timeless portrait ! J A R E , when you clock 21 remember to do same pose and style TEAM Muse : @the_j3_sisters Make up by Dammy of @iposhlooks Creative style direction @mofebamuyiwa Hair by @totalshopwigs Hair styled by @hairkarved Styled by @styledbyseun Assisted by @adebimpe_aj @ernest_chuxx @official_bigjosh #bmbstudio #bmbphotography #mofebamuyiwa #kids #kidsphotography #artsy #love #light #childphotographer #familyphotography

Mofe posted three photos of Jare, captioning them, “Oh yes she’s human! She’s also an angel!” and “Children are a gift from heaven,” Mirror reports.

The pictures got 20 000 “likes” on Instagram with people calling little Jare “the most beautiful girl”.

“Jare isn’t a professional model,” Mofe told Yahoo Lifestyle.

The photographer encouraged Jare’s mother to create an Instagram account for her and her older siblings, Jomi, 7 and Joba, 10. The account is called The J3 Sisters and it’s already gained more than 5000 followers.

Mofe can’t believe the amount of attention the pictures have received.

“All I want is for everyone to see Jare’s powerful potential,” he says. “I want the photos to speak to her once she’s reached adulthood.”
