When Nigerian photographer Mofe Bamuyiwa set out to photograph five year old Jare of the J3 sisters, he could not for the life of him imagine the internet would go as crazy as it did. Dubbed the most beautiful girl in the world, Jare is the youngest of her sisters named Joba and Jomiloju Ijalana. When the photo of young Jare went viral, the world went berserk. Her simple child features accentuated with the make-up artistry of Dammy of Iposh Looks made her portrait a favorite among internet users. As Jare sat there looking straight into the camera, it is easy to see why she captured so many hearts.
Her simple Afro is a statement in this world of trends. She has worn her hair like a crown and the simple look on her baby face adds to the zest of a wonderful portrait photograph. Many black people can relate to this photograph because the photographer embraced all the natural aspects of the black woman’s facial features and represented it innocently in the portrait of the young beautiful Nigerian girl.
Most beautiful girl in the world
With the growing trend of internet users voting young girls around the world as ‘most beautiful it is easy to see why Jare easily got the title. This may have suddenly thrust her in the limelight but her mother has wasted no time in taking advantage of this situation to help her beautiful girls into the world of modelling and hopefully advertising too.
The J3 sisters’ Instagram page though fairly new has already gained a massive following online and we are sure this might just grab the beautiful girls or Jare specifically one or more opportunities in the world of advertisement as well as modelling.

Who is Mofe Bamuyiwa?
Mofe Bamuyiwa the photographer is also a winner in this sudden attention to the lovely five year old Jare Ijalana. With his BMB studio, Mofe describes his business as a weddings and events management photographer. He also describes himself as an artist.
Looking at social media, we see Mofe get criticized and applauded. As is with the world of today a lot of people come with a multitude of opinions about all kinds of things. Mofe definitely did not escape the wrath of internet trolls.
One half seemed very appreciative of the art that Mofe was able to achieve with Jare’s portraits and yet again, another half criticized the work claiming it was unethical of the photographer to put so much make up on a five year old and alter her eye color.
The intagram comments that are in all languages and slang you can think of have gone ahead both to appreciate and to break down the pictures of Jare. She already has groupies at her young age of five! How about that for being the world’s most good looking? I bet she is now the most popular little girl in her school too.
Regardless, anyone can see that Jare is a beautiful five year old and whether or not people accept the portrait, the family is happy and so is the photographer. After all, they say all publicity is good publicity. Many people now know Mofe the photographer and that is definitely a win for Bamuyiwa as well.
Whats next for Jare?
So one might wonder, what happens when you are dubbed the most beautiful girl on the planet. Where does that lead you and what next? That is a question that only time can answer. We all hope that being thrust into the global spotlight only affects this beautiful girl and her sisters in a positive light.
As for young Jare, we all truly hope she can stay within the modelling industry and hopefully she can do yet another shoot to portray her older version as Mofe had hoped. Her delicate feminine features that brought a masterpiece should definitely be portrayed later on and quoting Mofe “Posing them as adults was my trick to create it a timeless portrait! Jare, when you clock 21 remember to do same pose and style.”
As Jare’s internet fame continues to grow, we see Mofe Bamuyiwa say “All I want is for everyone to see Jare’s powerful potential. I want the photo to speak to her when she has reached her adulthood.” With such a vision, it is easy to see that this is a passionate photographer who managed to take the young girl and her sisters and turn his artful vision into a stunning reality.
The internet is still going nuts over the beautiful black girl. We cannot however decipher if she will stay on the news or a new distraction will come up but one thing is certain, the big beautiful eyes and the Afro to die for will be remembered for a while. We hope she breaks the internet again in a few years as the most beautiful teenage girl.
Even as the trend of calling good looking people most beautiful persists online, the impact of such also grows. A wave of self-appreciation has hit the planet as we see more people embracing and finding out who they are and where they comer from. Jare’s portrait shows the Epitome of black beauty and it is no wonder the world fell in love with her.
