Meet The Celebrity Who Requested To Take Photos With President Buhari When She Met Him In Lagos

If you had the opportunity to meet President Buhari, what would you request from him? As we already know, such an opportunity does not come easily, so anyone who has such an opportunity would want to create memory out of it. I believe that is what the model Naomi Campbell had in mind when she met President Muhammadu Buhari in Lagos in 2018.

Naomi Campbell is a British model, actress and businesswoman. Since she was discovered at the age of fifteen, she rose to become one of the most renowned supermodels in the world. She's the first black model to appear on the cover of Time, and the first black woman to appear on the covers of French and British Vogue.

In 2018, Naomi Campbell was in Lagos for a fashion-related event, and her visit happened at a time when President Buhari was on a two-day visit to Lagos, during which time he launched a mega housing project in the state known as Eko Atlantic.

Speaking about the meeting then, the presidency had said that President Buhari was taking a tour around the Eko Atlantic project when Naomi met him, and she requested to take photos with him.

The model had also taken to Twitter to tweet about the meeting and share photos of her and the President.

In her years of career as a model, Naomi Campbell has had encounters with several notable personalities in the world, and President Buhari is one of them. There is a saying that talent paves the way for people, it gives one the privilege that they wouldn't ordinarily have. Naomi Campbell may not have had such an opportunity if not for her talents.

The truth is that, if we want to gain certain privileges in life, we need to first work on ourselves and develop our talents. If we develop them, then events of life might bring us into contact with certain people we would not ordinarily meet.

If you had the opportunity to meet President Buhari, what would you request from him? Would you ask to take photos with him? Please feel free to share your thoughts with us.
