The “most beautiful girl in the world” is a 5-year-old Nigerian

The pictures of a 5-year-old Nigerian girl went viral after it was shared online by her photographer.

The girl, 5-year-old Jare Ijalana, was praised on social media as being “doll-like” with  many calling her as the “most beautiful girl in the world.”

With little Jare’s stunning beauty, the photographer, Lagos-based Mofe Bamuyima, called her an “angel.”

“Oh yes, she’s human! She’s also an angel! “JARE,” Bamuyima captioned one of the girl’s photos that he shared on her Instagram account last week.

Oh yes she’s human ! She’s also an angel ! “J A R E “ I want to portray the interception between her childhood and adulthood so both stay timeless ! I could have made her smile and make her laugh out loud but I put her in their natural moments for us to see through their eyes ! Posing them as adults !

Everyone who saw Jare’s pictures agree that she possesses a natural beauty. However, a number of them slammed Bamuyima for enhancing the pictures using Photoshop.

“Beautiful child… but why all that extensions? Her natural beauty should be portrayed as such and not photoshopped,” one of the commenters said.

“Yes. Photoshop, wig, makeup. Should have left the child in her natural beauty, she didn’t need all the enhancements,” the netizen said.

Surprised by the online reactions to Jare’s pictures, Bamuyama prompted the girl’s mother to create an Instagram page for Jare and her two sisters – Joba and Jomiloju. The Instagram page, the_j3_sisters, said the sisters are available for modeling opportunities.
