I Am Ibrahim Abosede Ololade. A student of Yaba College of Technology, studying Mass Communication. I am a model.

Fadaka: Ow! That’s nice. So how long have you been in this profession?
Thank you. I have been into modeling for like 4 Years now.
Vich: Wow! What has been ur challenges so far?
I have been through lots of challenges. Like going for casting and the instructor wanting to get down with you, not that u ain’t good but they refuse to pick you for the job, all because of favouritism – they will choose their people… or like going for auditions, and you where picked but before you knw it, you see you are out of the game. I knw some modeling companies that do such but I don’t want to mention names here.
Vich: OK! Outside modeling what else should we see you soon?
Hmmmm! Outside modeling you should be expecting something new, like seeing me in a home video, bcecause I love acting as well.
Vich: It will be nice to see you there! Back to modeling, tell us about your low point and high point, I mean the memorable moments, good and bad ones.
Lolade: Lol! Waoooh! Let me start from the good side of it.
The most memorable good day, was when I won Miss Amity 2014 in Lagos state, in a pageant called AGBEKE EKO and the other side of it, is when I went for a pageant in ijebu Ode, 2012, and I won nothing.
