Bayo Omoboriowo has had to pull himself up by the bootstraps in life. He hawked sachet water just to make some money for his family. In a conversation with Nigerian entertainer Ty Bello, he shared “They were calling me Bayo pure water because I shout ‘Buy your pure water’… this was when I was still in primary school. At a point, I was ashamed because I would see my schoolmates and their parents driving them home after school.” Today, he is the chief official photographer of Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari.
