Five-Year-Old Nigerian Girl Hailed 'Most Beautiful In The World' After Photos Circulated On Social Media


A 5-year-old Nigerian girl is going viral on social media after a photographer shared her portraits. The child had since captured the hearts of onlookers, as she gets dubbed as the "most beautiful girl in the world."

Events photographer Mofe Bamuyiwa took to her social media accounts to share just how much she was in awe of Jare Ijalana, who, hands down, looked photogenic and ethereal in the pictures. The Lagos camerawoman tried her best to showcase the interception between childhood and adulthood.

The photographer wanted to capture the kid posing like an adult while at the same time not altering the child's real emotions. The result was nothing short of perfection, and the social media wasn't at all blind to see that as well.

Bamuyiwa seemed to have gotten more than the message she tried to get across when many of the fans praised the little girl for being beautiful. She uploaded three photos of Ijalana, which were celebrated by many of the commenters.

"Oh yes she's human ! She's also an angel!" Bamuyiwa captioned the photo.

It is obvious that Ijalana didn't try her hardest during her shoot, and she need not to, as she looked effortlessly wonderful in the images. Add to that, she wasn't a professional model, Bamuyiwa revealed, and yet she had striking outputs.

Beautiful Siblings

Apparently, beauty runs in their family, as she has gorgeous siblings too. In an interview with Yahoo Lifestyle, Bamuyiwa said the child's two sisters, 10-year-old Joba and 7-year-old Jomi, also have unique features as her subject. The photographer also shared that the matriarch launched the sisters' own Instagram account, The J3 Sisters, which has almost 24,000 followers as of writing.

The outpouring praises and reactions in Ijalana's photos were unexpected, Bamuyiwa admitted. She added that she just wanted to share the girl's potential.

"I want the photo to speak to her when she has reached her adulthood," Bamuyiwa further said.

Some people have dubbed her the "new Barbie," and described her as "doll-like" and "true work of art." Meanwhile, Ijalana is not the only girl whose beauty had been acknowledged and had gone viral.

Thylane Blondeau was just 6 when she was touted as the "most beautiful girl in the world". The French model, who is now 17, got the attention of the world after her photos were seen at a supplement called Vogue Enfants.

Meanwhile, Anastasia Knyazeva took the crown last year from Blondeau when she won the social media with her fashionable outfits. The Russian model currently has 1.2 million followers on Instagram.
