Ayobami was scouted on Instagram after an image of her appeared on the explore page of the director of Few Models Management, Bolajo Fawehinmi. She sent her a message asking her if she wanted to be a model, to which she replied “I don’t think so”, Ayobami was later convinced to stop by the agency with her sister and in the words of Bolajo “I knew she was a real deal the moment I walked into the agency that morning and saw her sitting in the chair”.
Bolajo later introduced Ayobami to her friend at the IMG agency and she was signed to the IMG agency the next day, with Few Models Management still being her mother agency. In the space of three weeks after getting to London, she shot for Vogue Magazine (twice), Elle Magazine and CRF fashion.
She made her worldwide debut on the runway at Yves Saint Laurent in Paris and was later released to Givenchy. She was listed as number two by SatisfashionUG as “one of the eight African models to watch out for in 2018”
