Osapa Kingdom sits on very large prime land that stretches from the banks of the Lagos Lagoon to the beaches of the Atlantic Ocean. This whole area is being reworked into a sustainable city by Kazeem Royal Properties Ltd. Bennett Oghifo reports
The Lekki Peninsula in Lagos has, over the years, grown into a huge residential and commercial hub with a few sustainable communities. One of such work and live in cities is Osapa Kingdom, popularly known as Osapa London.
According to the Chairman of Kazeem Royal Properties Ltd., Prince Kazeem Eletu, the company commenced operations in 2009, and over the years has evolved into a brand that is synonymous with innovation, quality, trust and customer satisfaction.
He said, “Through research, we understand trends and community requirements. So, you’ll find Kazeem Royal Properties in the centre of the city.”
Homes in the estate are linked and well-paved with interlocking stones and lined with drainages to rid the city of storm water. Kazeem Royal, through its main contractor-firm, Structmatics Engineering Ltd., began the process of deflooding the city by rebuilding all the bad roads and drainages that were blocked without waiting for either the state or local government. The first road the company constructed was Prince Demola Eletu Street, followed by 7th Avenue and Bamidele Eletu Street.
Osapa Mega City…
Coming as a multi-billion naira project, the estate will be on over 150 hectares of land which will contain a 5 star hotel, schools, glass house building, hospital, Mall among other amenities and will be the new base of OSAPA MEGA City.
The new estate located just minutes from Lekki, between renowned shopping centres and surrounded by schools, parks and a flourishing local business scene, will be part of a proposed new layout, which is being prepared by United Arab Emirates -based firm, Abu Dhabi construction company and another renowned construction firm based in France.
“At Kazeem Royal, we do not compromise standards,” he said.
Besides, in the existing estate, Kazeem Royal ensures that every facility in it works fluidly and for this reason the Chairman of the company bought a huge transformer to power parts of the city and paved some new roads, complete with drains to ensure the area does not flood when it rains.
Homes in the existing estate are built by either the prospective owners by themselves or they contract Kazeem Royal to build for them. There are also homes for sale by the company and for lease, said the Chairman, adding that they build five bedroom homes only but that the homes on rent have two, three and four bedrooms.
They all come equipped with furniture and accessories, which the occupant is at liberty to choose in consultation with the company’s interior designers.
The city has exquisite Terraces and according to the Chairman, “The design philosophy behind Kazeem Royal Terraces directs seamless expansion of indoor living to outdoor terrace areas, capitalising on Lekki’s amicable climate.
“Free-flowing interiors spill onto spacious balconies and private terrace areas, providing each home with an idyllic outdoor setting all year round.
He said Kazeem Royal offer an exciting opportunity to live life at its finest with such a highly versatile space for work, play, relaxation, or entertainment.
“When it comes to shared facilities, Kazeem Royal gives residents plenty of reasons to love their neighbourhood.
“Kazeem Royal has a significant majority of our residents will own a balcony seat to view the beauty of cotton clouds courting the reluctant sun, twinkling stars lighting up the firmament, the moody blues of the waxing and waning moon, and the colourful canvas of the twilight.
“When it comes to our homes, it’s what’s inside that counts. Our renowned eye for detail and command of functional design are evident throughout Kazeem Royal, from the superbly functional open-plan living spaces to seamless finishings that exude modern charm.”
The homes, he said have high ceilings, quality flooring and generous storage space enhances the naturally free-flowing design. All bedrooms are fitted with built-ins and some of the expansive master bedrooms offer a spacious walk-in wardrobe.
He said there are four varieties of home layouts to suit a diverse range of lifestyles from individuals to families. “With options of two, three, and four bedroom designs spanning two and three storeys in structure- most with secure two-car garages- Kazeem Royal are built to fit the needs of all residents.”

Prince Eletu said, “All home designs include an internal laundry and incorporate open-plan living/dining areas with some opening onto accommodating balconies and private outdoor terrace spaces. Mindfully positioned windows flood each home with natural light and perspectives of the surrounding environment, while an abundance of indirect lighting outputs highlight the warm and cohesive design inside.
“It’s said that the kitchen is the heart of the home and we’ve kept that in mind while designing Kazeem Royal kitchens. Staying true to our design philosophy of promoting a balanced, community-oriented lifestyle, the beating heart of each home is open accommodating and ready to entertain.

“You’ll find an ideal workspace in Greystone’s kitchens whether you’re cooking for one, feeding the family or hosting a dinner party. Not to mention each kitchen includes an elegant glass splashback, designer tapware and quality joinery throughout.
“The kitchen seamlessly flows through the adjoining living areas, which feature a choice of either contemporary vitrified floor tiles or timber look floors.”
He said, “When it comes to bathrooms, privacy and comfort are never to be underestimated. Every measure has been taken to ensure that all Kazeem Royal bathrooms reflect the wants and needs of our resident, from efficient and spacious design to contemporary accessories and fixtures.
