Chief Segun Osoba, Governor Dapo Abiodun, Ex-Governor of Cross River state, Donald Duke, Mo’Abudu, Dignitaries, A- list celebrities and Top Business Leaders were part of the over 1,820 guests that came out to celebrate with Sujimoto@5 in Africa’s richest square meter Banana Island. The interior marquees decorated in Gatsby theme made some think it was a societal wedding. It was indeed a night of glitz, glamour and grandeur.
Speaking at the event, the MD/CEO of Sujimoto, Sijibomi Ogundele was very quick to appreciate everyone including critics, according to him:
“Pessimist don’t know this, but they contribute more to our success than our failures”.
The Luxury Real Estate genius metaphorically compared the Sujimoto story to the Chinese Bamboo tree that takes 5 years of continuous nurturing to grow. For Sujimoto, it has taken 5 years of hard work, diligence and integrity.
Corroborating this thought, the Executive Governor of Ogun State, Chief Dapo Abiodun, the Governor has this to say:
By all measures, Suji today, is a name that resonates the length and breadth of this country and for his age, this young man is a success story and I do not have a doubt that this is just the beginning. My prayer is that all other young Nigerian will use Suji as a prayer point. In Nigeria, rather than for people to appreciate the hard work you put into getting to where you are, they will keep looking for how to find faults. It’s called The pull him down syndrome. You know, even if you were selling ice-cream, or giving it out for free, people will still be unhappy and say all sorts of things about you. So I advise that you cannot and should never attempt to make everyone happy. Be diligent, hardworking and most importantly be a man of integrity.”
Local and International acts held the audience spellbound with exciting dancers, breathtaking magics, acrobats, musical performances from the gifted and classy Cobhams, Timi Dakolo, Darey, Punchline, not forgetting a special musical performance by the Sujimoto Staff, providing an unforgettable experience – the Sujimoto Experience.
