A Dream That Became A Reality: Sujimoto In Financial Times

Published

on


“Suji, you are making your generation proud and putting Nigeria on the world’s map!”

This was the message I got from my friend and mentor – Mr. Dharnesh, who was once the MD of Nestle Nigeria. I woke up to his message on my WhatsApp and other numerous congratulatory messages from friends and well-wishers who had seen Sujimoto’s mention in Financial Times! I was speechless!

Today, our hype has become a reality!

The Financial Referee for International Corporation has finally given its verdict by recognizing Sujimoto as one of Africa’s most luxurious Real Estate Company. For me, this organic recognition by an International organization, which is coming at a time when we have embarked on some of our most audacious projects, in a very difficult economy, is indeed a proof that the universe only responds to inventors and inventions, not mere intentions. We are also grateful to God for this achievements because it has been the most difficult 6 years of our life.

The Sujimoto brand started during one of the worst recession in Nigeria, and I remember in 2015, during an interview with CNBC Africa, I had just returned to Nigeria, I had no rich uncle or powerful aunty; no funds or financial backing, the economy was crumbling drastically, and all I had was my passion, tenacity and a dream that some said was too big! I looked at the interviewer and said with total authority, even if I didn’t know how I will achieve it:

‘Before 2020, we would have become one of the most important luxury real estate company in Nigeria.”

Today, our Jollof don don!

Like Joseph, I have been called many names. Some have called me ‘dreamer’, ‘noisemaker’ and all kind of names.  They were stunned at the audacity of a young boy from Agege, who had nothing but a strong belief that anyone can come from Ikorodu and become a king in Ikoyi. Someone even asked me, ‘Who’s your father?”

My Papa fit no be Dangote, or Adenuga but… I have decided not to rest until I have transformed the luxury real estate landscape of Africa, starting from Nigeria.

It is with this same diligence and attention to detail that we have embarked on game changing projects that are raising the standard for luxury living and changing perception on the continent.

For instance, when we started the LucreziaBySujimoto, a 14-Storey tower in Africa’s richest neighbourhood – Banana Island, we worked hard night and day for one year, digging deep and laying piles upon piles, to ensure the structural integrity of our foundation. Currently on the 11th floor, and projected to be completed 1st quarter 2022,  the 14-storey tower will be the first fully automated residential building in Africa with 48 electric vehicle charging stations, full home automation, 18-seater IMAX Cinema, Crèche to raise future leaders, first building with a GRC façade in Nigeria, Virtual Golf bar with over 2,000 courses, 320 square meter 5-star lobby, double kitchen fully fitted by Kohler, Zaha Hadid sanitary wares and many more breathtaking features and facilities.

Another astonishing project is the LeonardoBySujimoto which is a 25-storey waterfront high-rise building in Banana Island that will totally change the game for high-rise building in Nigeria. This magnificent tower will boast of 21st century features and amenities that beat the best in the world of luxury real estate.

We have also decided to take our dreams global by competing amongst giants…our Sujimoto Dubai tower is a massive 55-storey tower that will put Africa on the world’s map of luxury high-rise building, with a fusion of the exceptional African hospitality.

Other projects includes QueenAminaBySujimoto, , a 30-storey tower in Central Business District Abuja and the highly sophisticated JumeirahBySujimoto, a 25-storey tower which epitomizes the peak of luxury architecture at its best, rising above every standard in the industry.

Speaking on Financial Times mention, it is opporunity for me to clarify the global negative perception that Nigeria is a shithole country because if there is one thing I have come to realise, it is that Nigeria is a location for great investment and uncommon opportunities. It is also important to correct the impression that all the houses in Ikoyi are empty, the only empty houses in Lagos are houses that are poorly finished, yet demanding high and ridiculous prices. No high quality standard house in Ikoyi is empty!

As a brand, the Financial Times mention is a motivation to for us as and our generation in general, reminding everyone that ‘Ise l’ogun ise’, and for us as a brand to go the extra mile and not to rest on our oars. We have made a cautious decision to NEVER settle for less and to continue making Quality and Integrity the foundation of who we are at Sujimoto group. Cheers to more win! Cheers to more grinding!

Is The Fight Against LGBTQI Going To Solve All Our Problems? – Gabby Questions Sam George’s Strong Advocacy

Published

on


Leading member of the NPP, Gabby Asare Otchere Darko has questioned the essence of the strong advocacy against LGBTQI to the overall development of the Country.

The phenomenon of LGBTQI has gained massive attention once again after a Private Members Bill by some parliamentarians including MP for Ningo Prampram, Sam George was laid before parliament.

The said bill seeks to criminalize the practice of homosexuality in its entirety as well as the advocacy of the phenomenon.

Ningo Prampram MP, Sam George has defended the bill extensively on social media, and has insisted that the bill will definitely be passed, even though there has been fierce opposition from sections of the Ghanaian public.

One of such critics is the cousin of President Akufo-Addo, Gabby Asare Otchere Darko, who appears definitely unimpressed with the aggressive effort against the LGBTQI community.

Why Don’t You Legalize Polygamy? – Sam George Clashes With UK MP Over LGBTQI

Published

on


MP for Ningo Prampram, Sam George has clashed with a UK MP over the LGBTQI brouhaha.

Sam George has been trending on Twitter following a spirited Defense he has mounted for the anti-LGBTQI bill which is currently before Parliament.

However, many Ghanaians including some celebrities have lambasted the MP, describing his strong advocacy as backward.

As the back and forth continued yesterday, a UK MP, Seb Dance also chastised Sam George for what he termed as colonial legacies.

Mr Dance wrote, “What an appalling way to treat your fellow human beings. I hope you come to your senses and reconsider rather than build on backward, colonial legacies that have damaged and limited the lives of so many. Where is the love?”

In his response, Sam George wrote, “Mr George in response said: “I would be glad when you and your fellow MEPs come to your senses and legalise polygamy. Can you show me the science or common sense behind your criminalisation of polygamy? You may think yourselves so wise but the joke is on you mate. The love is in the common sense”.

Sam George insists that the bill will be passed into law.
