Rihanna lookalike Ala'a Skyy, Age 7, lands major hair contract

Ala'a Skyy, Rihanna's look-a-like, has landed her first major contract at the age of seven.

It all started after Skyy's photo went viral when Rihanna shared it with her 74m followers. Even the singer couldn't believe how much Skyy resembles her. It looks as if Ri put her face into the "baby filter" and out popped adorable Skyy.

That led to supermodel Tyra Banks asking Skyy to audition for her upcoming ModelLand amusement park.

Now, the child has been made an ambassador for The Mane Choice haircare brand.

Founder of the company, Courtney Adeleye, said of Skyy: "Not only does she have an amazing attitude and work ethic at such a young age, but she also loves her hair! She understands the benefits of using great products. It's amazing!"
