Sijibomi Ogundele’s Biography 

Sijibomi was born on April 8th, 1981 into a home with a father who worked a 9-5 job as a manager and a mother who was a full-time entrepreneur.

He grew up on the streets of Agege Lagos and attended state-owned schools. For his primary school, he went to Oko-Oba primary school where he also got his First School Leaving Certificate. To further his education, he attended Model College, for his secondary school. He also acquired a law degree from Anglia Ruskin.  With his mother being a trader, he grew up around the Oke-Arian market, filled with industrious Igbo traders which partly influenced his passion for business.

Growing up in Oko-Oba, a neighbourhood where only two households could be found owning a generator set in over 47 houses on the street, this became a challenging factor that made him hate poverty. To date, Sijibomi admits that poverty has remained a major driving force for him.

Sijibomi Ogundele Career

For most who had a smooth start to their career quest, Sijibomi did not exactly have it that way. Before venturing into the real estate business, he first started a bike business from his savings.

Despite their parents’ disapproval, he drew his inspiration from his mother’s entrepreneurial spirit and grew his bike business from 1 to 6 motorcycles.

Although being a lawyer, in 2004, he started his career in risk assessment where he moved up to lending in SMEs and set up Moto Finance in Paris which later branched out to Accra, Dubai, Madrid, and New York City.

Subsequently, his interest in the real estate business also grew while he was in South France as a real estate agent in 2011. His first kick was buying an apartment and remodelling it and reselling it for double the price.  This piqued his interest in the real estate business. After that, he leapt into the Nigerian Real Estate industry, Risk Assessment, and Project Management.

In 2013, he founded the company, Sujimoto in partnership with the real estate mogul, Mr Yazeed Alrahji, Chairman of DAEM Real Estate Investment Company, Saudi Arabia.
