The beautiful painting of the second lady comes a 'no makeup' photo of hers surfaced and caused a stir online.

In the photo, Samira is seen standing with her husband, Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia and the President of Cote d'Ivoire, Alassane Ouattara.

The three in long white apparels with Samira wearing a hijab to cover her head and she had no makeup.

The photo which is believed to have been taken in Mecca where the three people were partaking in the Hajj pilgrimage got many criticizing her for not being 'so beautiful' without makeup.

But this painting should put Samira Bawumia's beauty in no doubt and to Joel, it must definitely be his breakthrough.
