Entrepreneurship is indeed the toughest game ever introduced to humanity!
A lot of people think I just came from nowhere into wealth but they do not know what Sujimoto has been through!
From the ages of 8 and 12, I grew from owning 1 Okada to 6 Okadas, to helping my mother do ‘Alabaru’ in the market. Who would have believed that I even hawked souvenirs on the street of France?!!!
I have been in active business for more than 15years now. I am not an upcoming artist, but if I was in music, I will be Jay-z by now.
Success is like a game of Chess and I have learnt a long time that to win this game, you have to understand the rules. You have to know your entry and exit strategy. You have to be willing to dig yourself out of a hole. You must be willing to take a lot of ‘Nos’.
You must be willing to lose some friends, lovers and even family members. You must be willing to be misunderstood! You must be unreasonable!
“Success is not final, failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that counts” – Winston Churchill

“When the Bank asks me about my assets, I include my relationship with Tony Elumelu
Nobody desires a relationship of liabilities.
A relationship is like an investment. No one wants to stick with someone they are not getting value from…except you are an ARSENAL fan! 😜LOL!😂
Be an asset, not a liability! Strive always to add value.
Invest in yourself and build strong network because the currency of the future is not in cryptocurrency but in quality relationships.
Are you an asset or a liability?

15 years ago…
I was an unknown young boy, working quietly in faraway Europe, slaving on the streets of France, but never losing sight of my dreams.
This same me, who had left the shores of Nigeria with BIG dreams, haunted by the memories of an impoverished childhood on the streets of Agege, and the seemingly contrasting glamour and affluence, oozing from the wealthy neighbourhood of Ikoyi; one that never stopped inspiring me to reach for greatness.
This was all I had and all the motivation I needed…
15 years down the line, even though I am not yet where I want to be but I am humbled to be listed amongst great business tycoons, industry leaders, and political juggernauts such as Former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo; His Excellency, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo; and the great businessman and philanthropist, Tony Elumelu amongst other WINNERS who are making a difference against all odds!
If I could rise from the dust of Agege, without a rich uncle or aunty, to the affluence of Ikoyi, then your dreams are valid! Don’t let anyone tell you less!
50th among 50 Winners; Thanks to Business Day for making me stand on the shoulders of champions. This is an inspiration to me and my generation to do more.

I look forward to meeting this "Oga Sujimoto " someday. I worked for about 20months with a real estate developer as a PROJECT MANAGER (covering portfolios of 3major estates with just HND in Architectural Technology and project management cetification) in Lekki, that my Oga then motivated me although he was a "persive mentor" -you have to be wise to pick from that my Oga as he would not be detailed. when I stumble on your page(Oga Sujimoto), I honestly see the POSSIBILITY of becoming somebody in the REAL ESTATE. You sometimes told me in one of your post that you are a lawyer by profession. But you are indeed doing mighty in the real estate. I am indeed motivated, you are the 50th among the 50, Oga, THE KEY 🔑 IS THAT YOU MADE IT! I CELEBRATE YOU! I wouldn't stop wondering that you are 36yrs, no, you are more than that age! You honestly have what it takes. You are true African man, you have the love of people in mind, if not, you wouldn't have given all these motivations by telling us your very humble background. I wish you grace for many more GREATER ARCHIEVEMENT AHEAD.
Yes, I saw it today and it was inspiring !
Sky is the limit... keep motivating the young generation Sir. Congratulations #sujimoto

Our MD, Sijibomi Ogundele bares his mind on young Nigerians making a difference in an article he titled “Sujimoto and Nigeria’s Underrated Under 40s”.
Read an excerpt below:
“When I think about my generation, read about their achievements and see their dedication to attaining the seemingly unattainable, I realise that the future is brighter than most people think. I’m confident that in the next 10 years, the world will dazzle at the emergence of new Dangotes, a new generation of Obama-style Leadership and an incredible leap in our Tech Industry. Things our forefathers never dreamt of 100 years ago, our generation will dare to achieve. In all of my optimism and hope for this generation, I still recognise that we have our flaws. I know that drugs and alcohol abuse is a huge problem for many people. The desire for fast money is killing many of us. But where others see weakness, I see strength!
I see a generation of people with a hunger for excellence, passionately passionate about making sense out of life, aggressively taking their destiny into their own hands. Even though it seems like whenever we find the key to success, someone changes the lock! I’m sure that we shall produce the best traders and manufactures from Onitsha. Nnewi is already cooking industrialists who will put Nigeria and Nigerians on the map as the most dynamic business people in the world. Lagos will produce more Adenugas and Otedola’s with so much money. The ancient city of Kano will once again redeem its reputation for being the center of commerce; she will produce another Alhassan Dantata who later produced Africa’s proudest son, Aliko.”

To us, luxury is not only the creation of exceptional properties, but the unity and comfort of our people. It doesn’t matter if you are a labourer or a project manager, all I know is that everyone is human and deserves respect. Never ever underestimate anyone.

In 1988/1989, in a humble family in Agege, a 7-year old boy who loved building sand castles at Bar Beach had just purchased his first motorcycle (okada) with his savings. Away from all the “African parents slander”, he drew inspiration from his mother’s entrepreneurial spirit and went on to own six motorcycles at the age of 13.
To spur this, his personal contact with a Japanese University Professor, Dr. Sujimoto Koga, at the age of 21 spurred him to “dream it and achieve it:.
At 34, this 37 year old man took the Nigerian scene by surprise with his Medici Terraces Luxury Apartments and launches the tallest residential building in Nigerian.
Fast forward to 2015, Forbes listed him as one of the youngest under -40 billionaires to look out for. Today, his company Sujimoto Group is leading the pace when it comes to luxury real estate.
Not so many people can be trusted with a billion naira, yet local investors raised over a billion naira, a few months ago, for his undisclosed project in Banana Island.
A firm believer of what he calls “Dangotism” (from the name Aliko Dangote), he has given back to the society in immeasurable ways.
Although his dream to build the tallest building in Africa hasn’t fully materialised, we know that “if he can dream it…”
This man is Sujimoto Ogundele, the CEO of Sujimoto Group.

From Tupac to Biggy to Jay Z, history has taught us that Success is like a game of Chess, and we must learn that to win this game, you have to understand the rules.
Several statistics show that it is difficult for an African American Man in America to rise to the top, as they are mostly affected by the ills of the American Society.
Despite all the odds, the Jay-Z and @diddy you see today had every reason to be failures but they refused to give excuses. They worked harder and overcame daunting challenges to be different, famous and wealthy moguls. The man, who will make a difference, must be ready to take the less popular path.
What excuses are you making for failure today?

Between 2016 and 2017, I experienced the most horrible business, personal and emotional times of my life. Life had shaken my desire, questioned my ambition and broken my devotion. I was on the verge of giving up. Few friends stood by me, many laughed at me.
But I knew I was paying my price for greatness.
I was going through the worst situation of my adult years, but I didn't use my immediate surroundings or experiences to judge my future. I knew I had it in me. I knew my goals and I knew that only one thing could bring me down was ME. I knew to never ever settle for less. I realised that those who thought it impossible for me were saying all those mean things because my dream is impossible for them to fathom.
I stood firm because I realized that growth doesn’t come from the place of convenience but from the place of pain.
Today, what wasn't enough is now overflowing.
In 2018, operate in abundance and never settle for less!
