Breakout star, 19-year-old Nigerian model Eniola Abioro has accomplished so much since she was discovered by Bolajo Fawehinmi, founder of Few Models Management, in July 2017. She has since walked for the likes of Calvin Klein, Miu Miu, Versace, Tommy Hilfiger, Loewe, Off-White, posing for luxury brands like Louis Vuitton.
The former teacher took a career path that is cutthroat, to say the least, and made history while at it, becoming the first Nigerian to ever walk for Prada. Her natural good looks and elegant walk has quickly earned her a top place in the modelling world, and of course, she’s worked hard for it.
After a very busy and successful year working across some of the major fashion capitals of the world, Eniola returned home for the holidays. She was received with a warm welcome, pure joy and happiness as evident on the faces of her family members.
A hero’s return of some sort; you could see the pride on her mother’s face, and may I add that it’s easy to see where Eniola got her standout beauty from. Hello mama!
The excited model took to Instagram to share moments from her homecoming.
Watch the moment she arrived home…

Captioning one of her posts, Eniola stated:
“Posting a video and pictures that makes me speechless, my family is one to bless the name of Jehovah for, through thick and thin, plus erhm yes I went to the village to spend the new year with my extended families. There was no network service so even if you had tried to wish me a happy new year I wouldn’t have gotten it.
