A few weeks ago, the internet was wowed when Rihanna posted what many thought was a FaceApp-altered picture of herself on social media but what actually turned out to be a photo of a young lookalike of the singer. The uncanny resemblance shocked and amazed people and the image soon went viral, racking up over seven million likes on Instagram and almost 100k retweets on Twitter. The young girl was quickly revealed as seven-year-old Ala’a Skyy, and almost immediately modelling offers began flooding in, including from America’s Next Top Model’s very own Tyra Banks. And now, Skyy has scored her first major modelling contract as an ambassador for Mane Choice, a hair-care brand focused on natural texture. The seven-year-old, who’s Instagram account (run by mum) now boasts 140k followers, announced the news in a video in which young Skyy excitedly says she can’t wait to use the brand’s products “Tropical Moringa” accompanied by a caption expressing her gratitude.
