Bello had on her page written: “Awesome day sharing stories over food with @bayoomoboriowo official photographer to @muhammadubuhari."
“I wish there was a way to document all the amazing conversations that happen on our roof. And all these awesome people that come up there so often Bayo’s presence was a blessing and his love for Nigeria is contagious," Bello said.
“I was looking at him thinking .. hmm .. could it be possible that this young man is being groomed by God to lead this nation someday .
“It’s amazing to look back and be able to laugh at our journey . As we go along we get a clearer picture of where God is taking us and we are no longer ashamed to share the challenges that were difficult .. painful or even embarrassing.
“Those stories don’t define us but we proudly own them. They’re all important in building our identity…so we’re thankful for them. It was a more inspiring day for my assistant @shutterjenius on the left.

“Earlier in the year she was in a near fatal accident on her way to one of Bayo’s #unabashed photography events . I know that Adelodun absolutely adores him so it was fun to have her get a personal unabashed session.
“Bayo !!! Thank you for being so fun and inspiring .. we have waaaay too much in common … I love you and I’m so proud of you," she added.
