ARTSPLIT, the trail-blazing art tech platform, successfully held its first online “Lease Auction” from Monday, the 18th of April, culminating on Friday the 22nd of April 2022, just two weeks after its live debut on the 8th of April 2022.

 

The first of its kind auction was well received by its diverse community of collectors, with the 6-months lease of two artworks by iconic African artists with their works going for $1,185.19 and $1,128.75, respectively.

 

The ARTSPLIT app allows its users to own fractions, also known as “Splits,” of prominent African artworks and keep or trade them on the app if they win in the “Split Auction.”

 

These Splits enable multiple individuals to co-own a single iconic piece of art, which is not possible on any other art platform.

 

ARTSPLIT also allows users to participate in a ‘Lease Auction’ on the app to win physical custody of these split artworks for a set period.

 

The two artworks that were auctioned were “Untitled” (2014) by Abdoulaye ‘Aboudia’ Diarrassouba, an Ivorian contemporary artist, and “A Still Life of Fruit with A Spanish City Beyond” (1962) by the late prominent South African artist, Irma Stern.

 

Both works had been up for auction from Monday, the 18th of April and were due to close by midnight Friday, April 22, 2022.

 

A flurry of late bids by enthusiastic users looking to outbid each other ensured an exciting finish to a competitive auction! For the excited winners, they will have the works delivered to them for the duration of the lease period.

Aboudia chronicles the street scene in his city of Abidjan. In his vibrant, large-scale mixed-media paintings and drawings, inspired from the aesthetics of graffiti and traditional African carvings.

 

For Irma Stern, one of South Africa’s most outstanding artists. Africa was her “Paradise,” which inspired her artistic creativity.

 

The success of the lease auction is another inspiring milestone for ARTSPLIT. It demonstrates the importance of democratizing ownership of prestigious African artworks, with ARTSPLIT granting this access to a global community of art lovers.

 

Another significance of the success of the auctions is proof of the impressive acceptance and adoption ARTSPLIT has garnered from the art community across regions and nationalities, driving the integration of African art into the global art landscape.

 

Hannatu Ageni-Yusuf, ARTSPLIT’s Global Head of Marketing and Communications, stated, “It has been over a week since we began our soft launch, and the reception has exceeded our expectations.” We are currently gathering feedback from our early users to improve the app’s offerings. Collectors have so far been captivated by the catalogue feature, which allows major collectors to create a digital catalogue of their collection with a planned AI feature that will provide an indicative valuation of these works based on trade data.”

Why I Am Creating More Millionaires Through HOMEWIN Sujimoto boss, Sijibomi Ogundele, On His New Project

Published

on

The likes of Sijibomi Ogundele,CEO,GMD, Sujimoto Group of Companies seldom come easy in Nigeria’s highly unpredictable Real Estate terrain. This is because Suji…as fondly called by friends, not only dreams big, whatever he touches also turns gold.Ask even the big names in Nigeria’s Real Estate sector and they’ll readily tell you the guy is completely in a world of his own. Say what you like,there are those with the narrative that Sujimoto leads,others simply follow. Recently,the suave entrepreneur took to the streets of Lagos for the Launch of his new initiative ,HOMEWIN and he chose Oke-Arin,the epicenter of Nigeria’s biggest Retail market as a strategic location, using it’s commercial environs as a bedrock to declare war on poverty and raise the common man. Ogundele says HOMEWIN can be regarded as the ‘stock market ‘of the common man. Sujimoto”s newest project has been adjudged to be Nigeria’s biggest giveaway promo.With just N500,you can win amazing prizes ranging from a home worth N50 million.Other prizes include 2 brand new cars, salary4life (💯 k for 10 years)to immense daily cash prizes.A total sum of 100million will be won in 100 days. HOMEWIN is expected to produce over 11,000 winners in a hundred days. In this interview with Celebrityplusnonline, Ogundele talks about HOMEWIN , presently adjudged as the fastest cashout route for many.He also touched on the idea behind his much-hyped Luxury living projects and his will to make more Nigerians Millionaires within a hundred days…Enjoy it

Q1: Promos here and there with almost the same template, honestly, Nigerians want something new…what makes HOMEWIN different from the pack?

 

Homewin is more than a promo, it is a strategic empowerment initiative, powered by Sujimoto, to get over 11,000 Nigerians out of Poverty – the biggest intervention ever!

 

Homewin is very personal to me because in December 2020 while distributing Christmas Hampers on the streets of Lagos, I bumped into a pregnant lady hawking her wares around Maryland bus stop with a very big stomach. The total value of her merchandise should be below N3000 and I thought no matter how much profit she made, it would never get her out of poverty, I decided to support her and give her child a lifetime scholarship, however and very unfortunately, she lost the child. This inspired me to create an avenue to impact the lives of every Nigerian and give them an equal opportunity to be part of a promo that can get them out of poverty with as little as N500. This was how HOMEWIN was born.The idea is to give every Nigerian the opportunity to move out of the cycle of poverty by converting their N500 into a home worth 50 million naira and win lots of cash prizes daily within a 100 days. It is not profit driven, but an avenue to drive our generosity movement and touch more lives.

 

Q2: Who can play?

Anyone can play. HOMEWIN cuts across all strata and classes,Bankers, Street Hawkers, Businessmen, Market women, Lawyers, Doctors, Mechanics, Housewives, Vulcanizer, students, everyone is playing and winning already.

Q3: You had the Launch recently in the heart of Lagos Island, Oke-Arin,why did you choose such location and what has been the reaction of People to HOMEWIN?

 

It was very important for me to launch HOMEWIN in the marketplace where I grew up and the place I call home. I was super excited to see that the first lady that gave us her space to use for HOMEWIN was the first person to win 50,000 at the launch. That for me was a success.Nigerians love HOMEWIN and the reception has been mind-blowing as more people are playing, exceeding our expectations, to the point where we had to increase our daily wins at different times to accommodate more winners.

 

Q4: How swift do winners redeem their cash out?

 

We don’t joke with payment.In less than 24 hours, as soon as the daily draw is concluded, all Winners are notified via SMS of their winnings and credited immediately.

 

Q5: How can someone interested in being an Agent of HOMEWIN go about it?

 

Becoming an agent on the HOMEWIN platform is another way to make steady income and earn millions monthly. As an agent with HOMEWIN, you decide what you want to earn weekly and monthly.If you want to go home with a million naira every month, it is up to you. The more people that play with you, the more you earn in commission and there are no limit when it comes to how much you can earn. Visit https://agents.playhomewin.com/ to learn how to become an Agent.

 

Q6: Why are you being generous?

 

For us as a brand, generosity is not a CSR initiative or a competition, it is a lifestyle. I believe that when your neighbour is hungry, your chicken is not safe and this is one of the reasons we started the generosity movement through HOMEWIN, to be able to empower a lot of Nigerians within the space of a 100 days.

 

Q7: Can anyone interested in co-investing in HOMEWIN come in?

 

Why not? Anyone who has 1 Billion naira or more to invest can come on board.

 

Q8: What do you expect this project to do for the SUJIMOTO brand?

 

For us at Sujimoto,giving back to the society is imprinted in our DNA and it is fundamental to the brand’s philosophy. You can’t be a customer-centric brand and not be generous, neither can you create record breaking projects like the *Giuliano* , *Lucrezia* and the *Leonardo* without focusing on the comfort of your clients.

HOMEWIN is a Sujimoto CSR initiative. It is one way Sujimoto is empowering Nigerians and transforming their lives financially. At the end of 100 days, we want Nigerians to be able to say, because of Sujimoto, I am now a millionaire and can now live my best life.

Q9 Can you shed light on all the Luxury projects by SUJIMOTO ongoing right now and how investors/buyers can tap in.?

 

Top on the list is the *LuceziaBySujimoto* . This is not your regular tower; it is customized to reflect the personal taste and lifestyle of the *Lucrezia* *de* *Medici* , the 16th century sophisticated royalty who embodied an exclusive and glamorous lifestyle.
