Sijibomi OGUNDELE aka Sujimoto

Siji with guests 

With Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum

Sijibomi Ogundele is his real  name, but he is also very well known by his exotic sounding moniker or is it alias, Sujimoto.

He is a young and very resourceful man, especially blessed with the "gift of the garb". That he can talk, is second nature to him. He dresses well, he is a dandy who always looks dapper when you encounter him. He runs his own "eponymous'' establishment-Sujimoto; a brand that is into the construction, renovation and marketing of *premium real estate". He has a very ambitious project planned that would take him into the stratosphere, when executed.

He is a man of extraordinary sagacity, he goes to great lengths the make you understand where he is coming from and where he is hoping to land or be in the nearest future!

This very "eligible dude" from the source, who counts as one of his life's icon the Grand Sheikh of Dubai, just very recently waxed very lyrical about his desire to find true love, before the year ends (by Christmas).

In his text found on his Instagram page, he spoke about what the "lucky angel, his princess" that would mesmerise him continuously and sweep him off his feet to fall sweetly, on the magical Aladdin like mat of love would gain for their love for him- His carrot (🥕) which he hopes to crown the lady with- "A beautiful house (home) in Banana Island (that stupendous enclave of the super rich) & a Rolls Royce (we don't know which of the Rolls Royce, but it is still probably one of the best and most luxurious of super cars, but we prefer to refer to it as the 'ultimate chariot').

So damsel, lady, babe where are you hiding? "Prince Charming aka Sujimoto" like the Prince in the Cinderella story is searching for his princess, are you gorgeous enough to wear those gorgeous and very delicate glass slippers? Do you fit the bill? All the "unfine/ugly step sisters need not apply!

It's only 2 more months to December, so get cracking!!!

It’s not a fleeting trend that’s here today and gone tomorrow. “Curvy” is here to stay!  After the triumphant success that Latasha Ngwube’s The About That Curvy Life Collective achieved at Heineken Lagos Fashion and Design Week 2016, ATCL is engaging Africa in the conversation about body positivity and size inclusion via LFDW’s esteemed platform.

The About That Curvy Life Collective is proudly powered by tech giant, Intel.  This amazing brand supported ATCL last year, and they are returning this year again, to offer their support.

This is a particularly exciting time for the industry as key players like Intel, who understand the value of empowerment and exist to give technological support to platforms like ours. In this digital age, a brand like Intel keeps us connected, allowing us go further with every stroke on our keyboard is definitely one to have on your team and we are super excited they have come on board once more, on a project like this. Intel itself is no stranger to fashion, as it has been the official technological partner of New York Fashion Week for the last couple of years. Their current slogan #IamPowerful is in line with Aboutthatcurvylife's message of empowerment which affirms a woman's right to want to feel beautiful, confident and stylish at whatever size.

Speaking on what can be expected at the ATCL Collective showcase this year, Ngwube says:

Iphie and Tundun

Ruth Osime & Scholar

Still on the matter, the supremely gorgeous, Ifeoma Williams is still in a wonderfully celebratory mode as per her 40th birthday, twas upcoming befiee, but day came and it's now the party we are awaiting. .

Life they say begins at 40, so it's a new beginning, a new lease of life, newer adventures, newer horizons to climb, newer achievements, newer goals to set and meet etc.

As part of the activities to mark the birthday, one of Nigeria's most elegant ladies and icons, in the person of Mo Abudu, the founder and CEO of Ebony Life TV, had hosted the charming Ifeoma Williams and her friends to a very fun packed pyjama jam, that saw all the guests let down hair and had great fun about last week. That exclusive gathering was fun all the way, from the video we saw.

So Tuesday, October 17, 2017 was the actual birthday day itself. And not one to just let the day slide just like that, Ifeoma and a few friends, were at the "House on the Rock Church, to partake of the special Holy Communion Service" blessing the day and new age. All that attended were gaily dressed in native attire, looking super stylish, we saw birthday gal herself, Iphie in green, Ruth Osime, Scholar, Tundun Abiola, Banke Balogun and a few others.

God obviously has been good and great towards this stunner of a lady, who has stayed beautiful and stylish all of these years. Truth be told, she doesn't look 40 at all, kudos we say to good genes.

The main shindig to rival all shindig is actually set for Sunday, October 22, 2017 and the theme of the day is "Michael Jackson", however the guests would interpret this theme is left for the imagination, but we are sure it would be fun and hilarious. We are too sure that  this party would be swell and super fun and would be a party to be at and be invited to.

Late Sarah in better days

Late Sarah & mom


A couple of days back we posted about Sarah a cancer patient undergoing treatment in LUTH needing help to overcome her battle for life, fortunately many responded and unfortunately some didn't.

Suffice to say that Sarah did her best to live, but her best wasn't good enough. The doctors did their best too, but that also wasn't good enough too.

The resilient lady, who was very gorgeous and had the zest for life before the terrible scourge cancer reared up its head; Sarah unfortunately passed on yesterday afternoon, Wednesday, October 18, 2017, after her painful long battle for survival.

We just want to say thank you first to the Niola Cancer Care Foundation for all that they did, and also to many of our good  hearted Nigerians for responding positively to the urgent call for help, and to also announce that the donations should stop for this particular patient!!! 

May the soul of the dearly departed find rest and may the creator give her family members and her loved ones the fortitude and strength to bear the irreparable loss!!!

Intercontinental Hotel Victoria Island

Lobby & Reception Area

Just at the weekend we were invited for a meeting at this humongous and intimidating hotel which we believe would have been a self rated 4 or 5 stars hotel, but by our experience is more of a 2 Stars rated hotel. 
The name "Intercontinental" normally evokes in the mind a top standard internationally acclaimed hotel chain brand, known for providing near first class experience for their guests and visitors. So everything about them is supposed to be top notch, be it the structure, the ambience, the staff members, the food, interaction and what have you. 

Many of the markers noted above are some of the things you enjoy as you come into the Intercontinental Hotel Victoria Island Lagos, except some little which counts a lot for an international standard hotel. 

As we entered the front part of the imposing hotel, it was littered with monster cars, we counted at least 2 Ferraris, one an intimidating Tomato Red Ferrari and the 2nd just next to the door, a white 2017 Ferrari Spider 488, amongst several other imposing cars the Range Rovers etc. 

Next was the awesome looking lobby, where first you have to go through the security check, those here were nice and courteous and welcomes you well. Right across in front is the reception area, staffs were obviously well trained and know their onions, a slight left deviation sees you facing the restaurant area, which is also well packaged and presented, their food is good if we may add and not far from the restaurant is where the elevators are leading upstairs to the upper echelon of the hotel. Directly opposite the elevators is the imposing stairs leading to the immediate upper floor area of the hotel, all of these areas were well managed, the staff members you encounter were all cool and willing to help. 

If we are totally correct, the standard all over the world is that the higher you go in an hotel, by that we mean, the higher the floor of the rooms or suites of an hotel, the more exclusive the rooms or suites would be! 

So our meeting was on the topmost floor, at one of the suites there, specifically room 2317 on the top floor of the "Intercontinental Hotel Victoria Island Lagos". 

We were expecting to be ushered into a lush and super well appointed suite of 5 star class, that would 'trip' us and make us dream like we were somewhere else. A room with a view to die for and more. But we were totally and thoroughly and completely disappointed! It was very bland and just there and right in front of us, not too far from the door, just above our head was a leakage? Water was dripping from something, somewhere above us! And it was slippery! And opportunity for accident and for one to claim good damages! You could even see some cracks on the ceilings too! 

We would have thought and expected that you don't give out a room that has problem(s) or issues to your guests, no matter what! People's experience of what you offer and your services are what you would be judged by and that experience they would relate to others! 

Imagine that we were "Hotel Critics" or even "Star ratings award panel" or even some form of investigators? That experience alone in a supposed suite was already a major disappointment and downer! 

So imagine now our shock again, when complaints was made and the staff just brought about 2 large bedsheets to lay on the floor, just to soak the water!!!

So Intercontinental Hotel Victoria Island Lagos, it's not just about the facade alone, it's also about the underbelly. For your kind of brand, everything counts, reason being that just the name of your brand alone, brings people to you. 

So your score is above average, but you could have done far better. Or is it that we expected far too much???


Oluwatosin Saraki

Dr Bukola & Toyin Saraki

Toyin Saraki

Otunba Adekunle and Erelu Ojuolape Ojora
- The Wedding would span Ilorin, Lagos and Abuja.

- The dates are Saturday, October 21, 2017, Saturday, October 28, 2017 and Thursday to Saturday, December 7 to 9, 2017.

- The known venues are Eko Hotel, Victoria Island, International Conference Centre Abuja and Yar Adua Centre also in Abuja.

- The families involved are the Saraki's of Ilorin, Ojoras of Lagos and Olukoyas of Ogun State,most likely Ijebu.........

All the exciting details and informations, about the wedding that might stand shoulder to shoulder, neck and neck with the sheer opulence, extravagance and clout that was displayed at the AMOSUN weds Dabiri wedding.

The man with awesome clout in the person of the current Senate President of Nigeria, in the person of Dr. Olusola Saraki would pull his weight as he would host the world at his 1st daughter's wedding of the year.

All things being equal, the State known to all as the "State of Aquatic Excellence", but more famously known as Lagos, Nigeria's undisputable economic hub and the richest state in the country by far, would host some of the heaviest of heavyweights by any yardstick of measurement, the movers and shakers of the society, the pillars of the Lagos establishments and more, top government functionaries and officials, both from the states and the Federal Government and National Assembly (Senate and House of Representatives), political juggernauts from  all sides of the divide, be it from thr APC, PDP, APGA etc, top business people (men and women) of life, the diplomatic community, both local and international, all would converge to make sure that this is the season's champion.

This most definitely would be the "Primera Liga" of all weddings in Nigeria this season without any iota of doubt and baring none. If the former despot Babangida, could pull his weight considerably, if Amosun and Dabiri could mesmerise all comers, then this one would be the king or emperor of weight pulling.

We had announced this wedding previously before on this your soar away platform, that was a few weeks back and told you how it was upcoming and that a leg of it was being planned as a "destination wedding". But that part has since been jettisoned and it is now a full NIGERIA affair, why take our money and the ensuing razzmatazz to another country that's not ours? This is the wedding that will say to all others and would tell them all brazenly,  "Elojokoje", meaning all others go sit down quietly without any iota of whimper whatsoever, in pidgin English " go Siddon dey look".

More exciting details after the break.

Xerona & Derin


Actually it is the Dukes and the Phillips, who are about to officially tie the knots pretty soon.

Donald and Onari Duke were the gorgeous and stylish couple who were the former executive Governor of Cross Rivers State and his former first lady. Donald it was that brought about some of those extraordinary infrastructural development in his state.

Chief Mrs. Teju Phillips on the other hand, is the first daughter of the late former Apena and one of the most flamboyant and most respected Africans in the world, in the person of Chief Deinde Fernandez. Mrs. Teju Phillips was one of the top Commissioners in Lagos, during the administration of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

These 2 families are set to unite in a big society wedding that's upcoming very very soon. The duo of the stupendously gorgeous and cerebral Xerona Duke and the dashing Derin Phillips aka the incredible DJ Caise have been engaged since August of 2017.

But their actual introduction ceremony was just at the weekend. The wedding would be a great display and the unity of the best of the Yoruba culture mixed with that of the very rich Efik culture and the panache and glamour of the Kalabaris!

The details of the upcoming wedding though not out yet, would soon be related to friends and family members and we are sure it would be a super stylish one, going by the antecedence of those involved.

From the pre-wedding pictures taken at the introduction, it is obvious that the duo are madly and sumptuously in love with each other. Infact the love seems very overpowering.

More pictures after the break.


There was first the "419 wave, which is another code for saying obtaining by "falsehood or pretence", which earned the practitioners- who were many celebrated people loads of money, even a colossal amount if we can say that. The top hierarchy of those involved in the trick, even at a point became celebrated figures and celebrities, driving the very latest cars and building humongous edifices, their legend was sung by many of our top musicians, who even went on to wax albums in their names, giving them titles like- the moon that shines on all and many more.

Indirectly, they became inspiration to certain types of people and why wouldn't they be? Especially when same type of tricks were being used legally by those working in Government parastatals who were becoming multi-millionaires just for working for Government and were using their pens as weapons of theft!

Gradually the 419 thing assumed another dimension and gradually Yahoo-yahoo mode of operation reared its head up and became the in-thing! The same type of operations now assuming a new name, but it's the same principle that ran through it, same idea to just simply hoodwink the greedy and the gullible and wipe them out of their funds. The minute you have an "ounce of greed" in you, then you can be easily activated, making you already a sucker (Mugu/Maga) waiting and ready to be taken or gotten and if care or restraint is not applied, the Maga would be completely taken to the cleaners, there's no pity here ooooo!

People have asked the question to ascertain whether he is edelibrately insensitive?

That's only because how can one just make a decision that is so totally out of sync?

Is it that he lacks advisers? Or it's just that even when they advise him, he sees himself as the only intelligent one around, the undisputable lord of the manor, who can do no wrong?

Firstly, you brought in to the country, one of the most vilified person in Africa, same person whose own country people are doing their best to investigate for so many allegations. Same man who presides over a country, whose people totally hates your own countrymen and have even murdered a few to show you how they mean business.

So this same Jacob Zuma came into the country and in what still seem like a dream you unveil a statue of him! Which makes one to ask, is he Nelson Mandela? Or better still, what is Jacob Zuma's contribution to the world and to Nigeria to warrant such a monument? If the tables were turned, would South Africa or the government have done such for us too?

You used taxpayers money, which you claim not to have enough of, still owing backlogs of salaries, on a round of folly? Just to make yourself look totally out of tune and totally far away from reality?

And this is the same person that would point out or chose for his own people, who to succeed him at the next election? 

To say one is disappointed, would have meant one had expected better from you, the shock here comes from the fact that action was actually you, you made no effort at all, at not being predictable!

You goofed!!!!!


Her Excellency, Madam Osodieme Ebele Obiano, the 1st lady of Anambra State is surely a good wife, why have we said that?

If we are to judge strictly on the basis of her wanting to help her husband the "Executive Governor of Anambra Chief Willie OBIANO" to retain his mandate to rule the good people of Anambra State for the 2nd time, then her "antics", (especially using the style of Peter Ayodele Fayose to hoodwink the people) at "electioneering campaign" then can be easily excused.

Imagine the Anambra State 1st lady deciding to ride around on an Okada (bike) looking grossly uncomfortable as a way to endear herself to the people and make them seemingly feel she's one of them!

If it was something she does often it would have been great, but to now embark on subterfuge for election reason to us is a gross mockery! Bad aspect of it was that the discomfort was etched on her face glaringly!

We particularly love her husband and wouldn't want them to take this thing now, to the mundane level. 


Sarah and mom

Niola Cancer Care Foundation sends grateful thanks to all who have donated towards Sarah's care.  We have raised N172,000 between Thursday evening and Friday. We were at LUTH yesterday to give her money and met her in soul wrenching pain with her distraught Mum weeping helplessly.  Her doctor informed us that apart from the palliative care, she urgently needs 6 courses of chemotherapy to shrink the massive tumor in her abdomen. Each course is approximately N123,000. She has done 1 course and has 5 to go. We are in a race against time.

Please help us!! Send your donations to

MARK WHO? MARK Obi......., the ultimate big boy super car fiend! Salute. LIFESTYLE OF THE RICH & FAMOUS!

It's the lifestyle of the rich and the famous (some infamous) on steroids.
Ferrari 488 GTB- Base Price $300,000 plus 
Aston Martin DB9-$200,000 Plus

We have thought to move away from the plenty "Alamala gist" and take it to another gear, focussing more now on some of those boys, some near men if we can refer to them like that, who are doing some things their elders who supposedly have far more money and who are supposedly far more liquid wouldn't dare do!!!

Let's talk about Mark Who? Mark O. Here is the dude who was the heartthrob, the heart beat of "that lady that a bag annihilated her marriage sometime back". She was so in love with this dude and actually wanted to marry him at all cost, that she even got pregnant for him, but alas the dude didn't want none of it. So the thing fell like a pack of cards and she moved on to go marry who you all know and the rest is history.

What's the gist about Mark? This dude who is an acknowledged "Ferrari preferred client" is the ultimate "super car monster" of the most awesome kind. Not even just a monster, he is actually a juggernaut. No no no that actually doesn't say it well enough also, he is actually the "Zeus of super car"!!!!

Let's paint you the proper picture! For the last 15 years and consistently so, this Nigerian-Britico dude has not failed to own the latest and the best that Ferrari can offer at anytime in the years. We are hoping you now understand why he is a "preferred client"? Imagine that in 2016, while Ferrari was still advertising their 2017 edition of one of their awesome cars Mark already had it and had flown it to Lagos!!!

Mark as we speak is just a year or 2 shy of 40 or might have even just clocked 40. He used to live in the UK where he had apparently gone to "college/school" a few times. But he now lives in Lagos at that rich people's enclave called "Banana Island". Mark for those who might not really remember him, was the dude who in the days of "Ahmed Onwubettine" of 1145 used to drive those monsters with labels- Mark 1, Mark 2, Mark 3 etc.. . 

The proper English speaking dude with the accent, is a super car fiend without equal; apart from the fact that he has driven "EVERY" top range Ferrari that has come out in the last 15 years- from a Ferrari F430, Ferrari 458 Italia, Ferrari 488 GTB he also has a awesome love for the Lamborghinis too, a couple of which he has also driven! In fact his 488 GTB is claimed to be the first in Africa. The base price for the GTB is about ₦108, 360, 000 (one hundred and eighty million, three hundred and sixty thousand Naira plus.

He has driven every super car you can name, even the Aston Martin DB9- a $200,000 (₦72, 000,  000) plus valued car.

Imagine that this dual citizen, had been doing what the "Arab kids/men" have now made very famous where they "air freight" their cars to and fro, to be driven wherever they are since 2008! Mark has had every Ferrari in Lagos since 2008. 


Love is surely a beautiful- Ini Edo

We had exclusively broken the news a few weeks back about the angel who has gotten the sumptuous back of this Nollywood titan, in the person of the man known to all as Stanel.

We also revealed to you that it is this man that has supposedly made Ini to retract into her cocoon in a good way, luxuriating in the fervent ambience of Supreme love.

We just caught both lovebirds last night about 10ish or thereabout having dinner at the Intercontinental Hotel Victoria Island, Lagos.

We had to look well again as we never knew that Ini Edo had such a banging body! That back hmmmmm can make an eunuch react in another manner! She was casually garbed in a polka dotted black outfit, that was awesomely form fitting and showed her curves to killer effect, while her man was just on a white top and jean.

The air and aura around them was thick with love, hence the title of this write up- Love is a beautiful thing!!!!

- He cannot dare enter Malaysia as we speak.

- He is currently hibernating in Dubai. Being there now for 3 months running.

- He sleeps on the couch at Mompha's apartment in Deira, Dubai UAE.

- He has a large enemy base as we speak and has to be very careful.

- Many of those cars he is seen in belongs to others.

-He is a loud braggart and an attention seeking noise maker.

-He might have returned back to his anonymous cocoon until another 'hit' happens. Which could be anytime.

- Apparently all those large bills incurred at a famous Lagos Lounge and Club is a package between Club and him, to project him bigger than he actually is and also to help connect to his supposedly large Instagram followership.

He has had his 5 to 10 minutes of fame and madness while it all lasted. He took the social media by storm showing off with so much abandon and aplomb that many were just too curious, wondering about who the dad or mom of this loud braggart was?

He had the somewhat annoying habit of posing inside one designers store or the other especially the Gucci store, which literally became his 2nd home, claiming to be on a buying binge. In fact at a point he began to make the brand look very cheap.

Imagine that those who should know and whose lifestyle it is to wear these stuffs or carry things by this brand, exclaimed that "how much truly is Gucci?" Is it not the same brand that does 50% sales? Can you even compare Gucci to Hermes and some other brands? For those who understands very well, what that actually means or just says is that despite all the flaunting and fronting, Hushpuppi was just actually a cheap braggart.

More after the break.


Nnamdi Kanu & wife
While there's still some form of controversies trailing his whereabout in Nigeria, with his group claiming that he might have been shot (killed) or that he was even being held incommunicado by the Army authorities, the very combatant leader of IPOB, who it seems is hell bent on the actualization of the BIAFRAN nation was recently spotted in London according to "PRECIOUS EZE'S BLOG", devoid of any form of fanfare, going quietly about his business with his lovely wife!!!
Dude and madam were apparently out and about doing some form of shopping, without a care in the world! 

Maybe this has even given credence to that saying of the sages that "He who fights and run away, lives to fight another" or also that the "Ram that has delibrately taken some form of backstepping (reverse) has only done so, to gain more momentum". 

So this might actually put to rest the allegations by IPOB that he was shot or that he is nowhere to be found! This might also answer the UK government who recently asked, that Kanu is actually with them in their own country, where he holds a dual citizenship! It also might actually vindicate the former Governor of Abia State, Orji Uzor Kalu, who had claimed before now and had been vilified by some, that Kanu had actually scampered away from Nigeria, during the army operation in the State and may actually be in London with his family resting quietly. 

The curious thing is that the dude in the so called picture who claims Nigeria is a zoo, was devoid of all the razzmatazz that normally follows him around in Nigeria, he was particularly garbed in a normal top trouser and jacket combo and not all the Biafra apparels that he so much loves to wear while in Nigeria. 

So "Mazi Nwannekaenyi "Nnamdi" Kenny Okwu Kanu", the so called "freedom fighter" is actually in London? And in his "anonymous cocoon"?  Luxuriating in the gorgeous and lovely embraced of his beautiful wife? 

So if true, when would he be coming back again? Can the above picture be recent?
