Nigeria’s youngest billionaire, Sijibomi Ogundele better known as Sujimoto has put some broad smiles on the faces of some students at the Lagos Free Slum School, Ilaje, Bariga, Lagos.
You could recall Sujimoto recently celebrated his 40th birthday with his friends as they threw a lavish party for him. He decided to give back to society as he visited the Lagos Free Slum School, Ilaje, Bariga, and gave out lifetime scholarships to the students. The students beamed with smiles as they were handed the goodies.
He said: “I know what it means to be poor and I have experienced what it means to not have food to eat. The fact these kids are in a public school doesn’t in any way affect who they will become in the future. I also attended a public school too – Oko-oba Primary School, but today I don’t look like it to the glory of God. I believe that these kids are destined for success.
“Giving back is the new luxury! If it doesn’t impact, then it is not luxury. “For us at Sujimoto, giving back is not a CSR Initiative or a PR stunt, it is our lifestyle. As an organization, generosity is ingrained into our DNA. I remember while growing up, we had a lot of relatives living with us and my Mum took responsibility for their education. Some were people we were not even related to, yet my Mum will ensure they eat the same food and wear the same clothes as her children. She would say to us then when we grumble as kids “Òkè l?w?? afunni ?gbé, meaning the hand that gives never lacks.
“Never have I seen children that lacked so much, yet still filled with hope and excitement. While they are not responsible for the ovarian card life dealt them, but their show of character and dedication is an indication that they will drag the bull by the horn!”
