Flying-like An Eagle! Sijibomi Ogunbomi, Spreads Across The Continent

Published

Sujimoto Boss

It takes a master vision to create a masterpiece. For the luxury estate expert, Sijibomi Ogundele, creating a masterpiece has never been a problem.

In his seven years of operations, the boss of Sujimoto Construction, has dwarfed many of his counterparts, as he has changed the narratives in the nation’s real estate sector.

Yet, he has not stopped dreaming! He  continues to fly higher to the chagrin of many.

Just as he has been making fortunes from the real estate company, Sijibomi, who is also a lawyer, is unrelenting and on his way to becoming the richest property merchant  in the country.

A few years ago, Ogundele  had envisioned  the possibility of establishing the real estate firm that would be a household name in the country.

So, when the opportunity presented itself, he grabbed it with both arms. At the time when most of his mates did not know how to navigate the labyrinthine ways to reach their goals in life, Ogundele had already planned his future in his head.

His is that of a grass-to-grace story;  it was a  bumpy journey to success. How? In the beginning, those who were ignorant of his ambition and plans were said to have  condemned him with their actions and inactions.

But he was unperturbed because he had a clear vision of what he wanted to do in life. With great zest and determination, he reached for the moon, knowing that if his grasp missed its cusp, his hands might  land on the stars. And his hands did land  on the stars!

The undisputed Luxury real estate maestro and developer of the iconic Giuliano building and the much-talked about LucreziaBySujimoto tower in Banana Island, is slowly becoming the Dangote of his generation. The under 40 entrepreneur who emerged from Agege to becoming the a businessman that is rubbing shoulders with other high flying businessmen and  a name to reckon with when it comes to luxury real estate in Nigeria.

Today, the expert  has shot himself beyond the shores of this country as one of the crème of Nigeria’s league of extraordinary entrepreneurs.
His success, despite all odds, is attributable to his unbending belief that hard work pays.

Indeed, his seemingly fairy tale may not come as a surprise to those close to him because he has over the years shown evidence of a man who is well versed in the art of making money ; and like a true cognoscenti , he knows when to throw the dice and even reinvent in a shaky business environment.

The business environment  has become his  playground where he has continued to find relevance and expression.

Restless but blessed with the brains of a genius, Ogundele’s personal life story further demonstrates the peculiarities of a maverick who stands apart and alone.

Today, the brilliant businessman is  reportedly recording  high turnover,  while he is also expanding his coast, as the luxury real estate, which he started a few years ago, is now expanding its operations to Johannesburg in South Africa as well as Dubai in UAE, Egypt  with plans to cover more international cities subsequently.
With over $400 million dollars company valuation, followed by the company’s diversification into other relevant businesses; the tenacity, passion and unwavering vision of the Group Managing Director, has positioned him as the next Dangote of his generation.
His vision is to grow his investment to the tune of  $100 billion in the next ten years.

In line with this vision, he flew out of the country to hold meetings with  some world-class businessmen around the continent last week, rubbing minds with plans to spread across the continent.
It is said that his success story is a lesson to many , especially youngsters whom are ready to take business tutorial from him.

Thunderous Applause as Oando Boss, Jubril Adewale Tinubu, Laurelled

Published

on

By

Mr. Wale Tinubu

Serial  entrepreneur and Group Chief Executive of Oando Group, Jubril Adewale Tinubu, CON, has earned a name for himself with his visionary contributions to Africa’s oil and gas space. 

As a top player in the energy and business space, cutting deals comes easy to a genial billionaire businessman. 

The Lagos State-born businessman is an embodiment of numerous virtues: diligence, excellence and integrity. That his workaholic disposition has taken him to places where kings wine and queens dine is a testament to his growing influence and resultant affluence. 

A force to be reckoned with in Nigeria’s economic sector, his entrepreneurial exploits readily qualifies him as one of the most audacious moguls Nigeria can boast of. The exceptional achiever grabbed life by the lapel and got transformed from a lowly beginning to an enviable status filled with accomplishments.

Since he founded Oando, Tinubu  and his team have worked and are still working organically on their vision to make Oando a top-of-the-mind brand. He has altered the equation in Nigeria, Africa’s biggest economy through innovation, experience and quality corporate culture.

Of course, doing business in Nigeria is not for cowards and the lily-livered. To succeed, entrepreneurs must imbibe the will and capacity to always be aware and take measures to protect their business from corporate blackmail by some competitors who wish to see rivals go down or rubbish their credit rating or public image.

Over the years, the trained lawyer has successfully battled this, triumphed and led his  ‘baby project’  into becoming a premium energy company that is being mentioned among the best in the international oil and gas market.

His profile has continuously been on the rise, not because he loves cheap publicity, but for his leadership qualities, brilliance and mastery, all of which have combined to endear him to newshounds as well as many across the continent of Africa.

Obviously, the man shies away from the klieg lights, preferring to silently grow his business.

To him winning awards is no longer a once-in-a-while thing. His boundless and borderless entrepreneurial skill has ensured that it is an all-the-time thing. For this, and more, Tinubu ticks all the boxes and tops the list in any award considerations by the media and other organisations. At the moment, his shelf overflows with awards and honours trophies.

Again, the man fondly called King of Africa’s oil  teed off the year with the coveted Private Sector of the Year at the Vanguard Personality of the Year awards. The event was held last  Friday 27th January, 2023 at the prestigious Eko Hotel, Lagos.  The brilliant businessman was  laurelled among other world class business magnates, governors and top government functionaries.

Stating how the funds would be spent, Ubah said N200million would be spent on the training of security personnel and provision of latest security communication gadgets for Anambra South vigilante groups.

He added that N300million would be for the provision of solar lights to further illuminate and strengthen the security architecture in Anambra South senatorial district.

The senator said the promise would all be implemented in the next three months.
