The kid quickly became an internet sensation.
Photos of a 5-year-old Nigerian kid named Jare has gone viral. The young beauty has since been labeled "most beautiful girl alive," an unofficial honor given in the sphere of social media. Previous winners of the title include Russian model Anastasia Knyazeva who was 6 years old at the time.
Jare's doll-like image was captured during a photo shoot with Nigerian photographer Mofe Bamuyiwa who chose to share it on her Instagram. Part of her caption acknowledges the girl's obvious beauty as she made the assumption that some of her following might think Jare was too beautiful to be real.
“Oh yes she’s human! She’s also an angel!” Lagos-based Bamuyiwa captioned the photo in which Jare has been praised for her doll-like features.
The enthusiastic reaction seems to have prompted the child's mother to create an Instagram account for Jare and her two sisters, 7-year-old Joba 7, and 10 yr-old Jomiloju. The J3 sister's account has already garnered over 80k followers and will surely attract modeling opportunities for the family.
The girls are such a sensation that copycat accounts are also popping up online. The manager of the sisters' account addresses the issue in a post.
"It has come to our notice that different instagram accounts are being created in the name of JARE, one of the J3 sisters. Some of them include @jare.Ijalana,@jareofficially & @jareijalana_withlove . We wish to state that we do not have any relationship with these instagram accounts. The sisters do not operate separate accounts. Our instagram account remains @the_j3_sisters . Let us be guided. Thank you so much for the love"
