Bright Sekoni


Bright Sekoni’s inspiring journey from a struggling entrepreneur in Lagos, Nigeria, to a successful figure in real estate is a story of unwavering determination

Bright’s entrepreneurial spirit emerged during his time at Lagos State University, where he gained a reputation for himself by buying and selling used shoes. His natural business savvy and networking skills allowed him to save money, eventually enabling him to start an Uber driving venture. While making an honest living through Uber, he yearned to make a more significant impact and secure financial stability for his family.


Recognizing the potential of the Forex market, Bright invested in it but encountered considerable debt due to its unpredictability. To clear his debts, he had to sell some of his acquired properties. This experience opened his eyes to the potential of real estate investment. After working for various real estate companies, he founded his own firm, which swiftly achieved impressive success by selling properties worth over 4 billion naira in just seven months.

In the face of economic challenges brought by factors such as COVID-19 and global crises, Shobowale highlights the real estate sector’s resilience. He proposes practical solutions in the book, including reforms in mortgages and collaboration between the government and the private sector to address housing deficits and boost real estate investment. The book’s public presentation is scheduled for August 6, 2023, in Lagos, Nigeria, and aims to provide a comprehensive roadmap for harnessing the potential of Nigeria’s real estate sector for sustainable growth and prosperity.
