Just weeks after earning the viral fame when Rihanna put her pictures online, Rihanna’s seven-year-old doppelganger has now landed her first major modeling contract.
The natural hair care company, The Mane Choice has signed Ala’a Skyy Baytops after Rihanna shared her photo with followers on Instagram.
The Virginia-based tween, who has captured millions of hearts with her remarkable resemblance to the 31-year-old singer, attended Beauty Con in Los Angeles over the weekend. She also debuted a knotted bun hairstyle, a look worn by Rihanna just last week in Barbados.
Courtney Adeleye, CEO and founder The Mane Choice, said, ‘Not only does she have an amazing attitude and work ethic at such a young age, she also loves her hair. She understands the benefits of using great products. It’s amazing!’
Ala’s has attracted over 140,000 followers in the blink of an eye. She thanked the singer for helping launch her modeling career in the first place.
She said, ‘One of the best things you could ever give someone is an opportunity! What you do with that opportunity depends on you.’
‘Thank you [Rihanna], I won’t let you down,’ she said in another.
She also uploaded a video where she is seen with The Mane Choice products.
The caption read, ‘One day you are using your favorite products because you love them and the next day you are using your favorite products and become their newest ambassador at the same time! Dreams really do come true, if you believe you deserve them.’
