According to sources, Olajumoke Sunday Orisaguna is,

1. She is happily married to a sliding-door installer and they have two children together.

2. She was a trained hairdresser back in Osun state but her family could not afford the necessary ‘freedom ceremony’- a passing out ritual that gives a trainee an unwritten permission to branch out and go solo.

3. She is set to start an internship at Make-me hair salon and has been offered an additional internship with Sari signature, a famous Lebanese owned salon on the island.

4. Payporte has also reached out to her to be model on their next billboard campaign.
