In late 2016, during a photoshoot for hip hop artist Jidenna on Broad
Street, Lagos, Amadi-Obi discovered Bukola, who was selling pillows on
the streets of Lagos. He immediately showed interest in her as a
potential model and scheduled a shoot in his studio. The result were a
series of stunning photographs that went viral around Nigeria, turning
the former pillow seller into an overnight success in modelling.
