The popular saying that when life gives you eggs, make an omelette’ is true indeed. Sijibomi Ogundele has braved all odds and made it out of the ghetto as Nigeria’s youngest billionaire.
Sijibomi Ogundele at his enviable age of 39, has managed to build an established brand after starting life as a head porter in the markets of Agege, Lagos, helping his mother.
He has risen from the lowest of ranks to the current position he is now. Sijibomi Ogundele runs the Sijimoto Group, a luxury real estate enterprise that builds world-class luxury spaces.
The project he is currently undertaking now is the Lucrezia By Sujimoto expected to contain Glass Reinforced Concrete (GRC) facade, Full Home Automation, private IMAX Cinema for the residents, standard crèche, Indoor Virtual Golf with over 2,500 courses worldwide to play on, swimming pool in the sky among other things.
He spoke about the project and said:
“We are building the best condominium not only in Nigeria but also in Africa. The Lucrezia Penthouse comes with a private elevator, private cinema, private golf, private gym, and a private pool! The Lucrezia is very special to us because Sujimoto is divesting from Residential Projects with 80% of our real estate interest into Commercial Projects.”
