Ademuyiwa Muhideen Olorunfunmi, a graduate of Civil engineering is a known face in the Abuja Real Estate industry, but not many know how he started or what he has been through to get to the point he is today. Olorunfunmi can be described to be the real definition of hustler, he left his comfort zone to seek greener pasture in a place he did not know anyone. Prince Olorunfunmi is the Chief Executive Officer of M. O Double Crown Investment Limited is in his late 30s.
Although, Olorunfunmi hails from Lagos, but his hustling spirit led him to relocate to Abuja in 2009 to seek greener pasture. Even though many of his friends have told him that there are several opportunities in Abuja, Olorunfunmi got to Abuja only to discover that life is not easy anywhere. For good three years, Olorunfunmi was sleeping in an uncompleted building, but he was passionate, hardworking and committed to changing his story from what it used to be. After about three years trying to look for how to make money, Prince Olorunfunmi gained employment at one LG electronics around Wuse.
But he was committed and passionate about growth, God sent his first messiah to him. He attended to the person, told the person about his journey and his qualifications. The person who is also a civil engineer after listening to his story decided to give him job at his company that was into real estate and building. That was the beginning of his breakthrough, but he was not fulfilled working. From there, he has started collecting consultancy job. Due to the housing challenge he faced when he just got to Abuja and his experience while working with the real estate company, he decided to invest heavily into real estate.
All his savings, he was using it to buy land at different locations. He concluded that the only option for him is to travel abroad to hustle and money make abroad will be used to develop the land he brought. He was given visa and he left for abroad to hustle. After few years, he returned to Abuja so as to come and develop his land. Unfortunately for him, about five or six different acres of land he brought, he discovered that when he started attempting to develop them, original owner will come.
Olorunfunmi explained, “I discovered that I was duped, it was fake lands that was sold to me. “All my hard earned savings running into millions was wasted. I was frustrated that i almost committed suicide. I almost ran bankruptcy because of the money I lost.” But Olorunfunmi seems to have God’s favour as he was able to meet with another messiah, Segun Akinyemi also known as Alawaye who now gave him genuine lands.
Olorunfunmi has risen to become one of the few that have survived turbulent periods. He is truly a man of commitment. Presently, his company, M. O investment company is into Oil and Gas, construction, among others. His life has changed, he is now collecting contracts from both government and private individuals. His estate, M.
