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