(Video) From Homeless Man To Fashion Model, This Man Has A Surprising Luck

This Nigerian homeless man got the opportunity of a lifetime by simply being at the right place and the right time. Spotted by creative director, Afolabi he immediately became an instant fashion model.

The director’s model was unfashionably late when he spotted Ali Olakunmi. The man was sleeping under the bridge he was doing the photoshoot at.

The young man has all the features of a model, so he approached him about putting on some clothes and posing for some pictures. And that’s how Ali the homeless became Ali the fashion model.

He went back to sleeping under the bridge after the session. But the tweet and the photos of Ali Olakunmi wearing stylish clothes and posing for photos quickly went viral. A multinational modeling company in Lagos contacted Afolabi about Ali.

Whether Ali signed under the company it is unclear. However, he now owns a social media account which is being handled by management. He has several photo shoots under his belt and now amassed over 3,200 followers.

His first tweet was his pictures during that life-changing photoshoot along with the caption: “I am Ali and I am born to be great”. He is definitely off to a good start and we all wish him the best in his modeling endeavors.
