Who is Sijibomi Ogundele?
Born 8th April 1981, Sijibomi Ogundele is an astute Nigerian businessman, entrepreneur, venture capitalist, and real estate mogul. He is arguably one of the youngest billionaires in Nigeria and one of the finest businessmen in Nigeria.
Sijibomi evolved from a barely average social standing through hard work and perseverance, to emerge as an achiever in Nigerian society. Making a bold move to relocate to Africa and discovering the lacunae in Nigeria’s luxury real estate industry, prompted Sijibomi’s passion to deliver classic properties across Lagos, through The Sujimoto Group.
Sijibomi has been described in Forbes Africa as a brave, young entrepreneur, set to revolutionize the luxury real estate market in Nigeria. Setting standards of excellence and simultaneously expanding his interests in construction, infrastructure, and entertainment, feats achieved by Sijibomi have positioned him as a man to watch out for as far as the revolution of Nigeria’s prime real estate is concerned.
Sijibomi, or Sujimoto as he is popularly known, is the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of a multi-billion-naira real estate firm, Sujimoto Construction. The firm built the tallest residential building, Lorenzo, in Lagos.
Sujimoto Group, his firm has offices in Paris, Accra, Madrid, Dubai, Riyadh, and Lagos.
Sujimoto’s popular mantra, 1+1=11 which he describes as Motomatics reflects his philosophy in life which he sums up as “never give up”.
