Sunday Egede

Mr Sunday Egede was born in Agbor Delta State on 25 May 1969.

While on vacation, when he was in School, he paid a visit to his Elder brother who sold provisions at the time with hs shop in Lagos.

During the period he stayed with him, he developed interest in the business and made up his mind not to seek paid employment when he is through with his education.

After a period of training where he understudied his brother, he was given some grant to set up a provision store inside Isolo Market in 1991.

Through dint of hard work, innovativeness and financial discipline with total dependence on God, the shop grew and he was able to establish De Prince Supermarket Gbagada as well as De Prince Supermarket Magodo.

It was equally through these outlets that some very successful retail outlet owners were trained which include ; Ebeano Supermarket, Blenco  Supermarket, Blossom Supermarket,  Danny’s Supermarket, Chapter one Supermarket and a host of others too numerous to mention.

In the year  2009, he formed a partnership with his nephew, David Ojei, to form Prince Ebeano & Company, owners of Prince Ebeano chain of supermarket which at the moment is Nigeria’s fastest growing indigenous supermarket chain.

He believes so much in God Almighty as his source and always makes himself available for God to use him to touch lives.

Sunday spots business opportunities where none exists, His organisational ability and belief in orderliness and excellence are reflecting in all his outlets.

He is a committed Christian and is happily married  to Mrs Joy Egede and they have 4 children.

One of his Managers that have known him for over 20 years said that Sunday took delight in seeing people succeed and was always willing to offer advice and assistance where necessary.

“This is one of the reasons we have a host of successful retail shop owners that grew under his watch.”

Together with his Partner, they are providing employment to over 600 individuals in their different business outlets.
