Meet The Talented Boy Who Started building his own car at The Age Of 14

Since the days of colonization, Africans have depended on European countries and other countries on so many things like electronics, vehicles and other valuable materials and equipment. Presently Africa countries have now developed beyond their starting point when they first gained independence.

Over the past few years we have heard of talented youths and adults who produce vehicles and other electronics which have lead to the masses asking the government to support or employ these persons who they believe will be an asset to their various nations.

One if these persons include Kelvin Odartei, the most interesting fact about him is that he produced his first car at the age of 14, who would have believed a 14 year old will be that talented.

At a tender age the Ghanaian was walking around picking empty containers and scrap metals to build up small vehicles. It was easy for him the because his mother was against his decision and actions then.

According to a statement by her, she said the reason why she tried to stop him then was simply because she didn't want her son to become a vagabond.

Presently Kelvin have now manufactured his own sport car which he calls “Kelvinsuik-2020” and his mum is now proud of him.

According to the 18 year old Ghanaian who just completed his Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE), he said at the age of 14 his intentions was to build an aeroplane which he attempted but after he failed to fly the plan from the ground he decided to switch sides and buildup cars.

Kelvin gained fame when videos of him driving in his Lamborghini look a like car to school on the last day of his BECE examinations went viral on social media.

The 18 year old who belive he still have more height to climb said his plans is to build and manufacture cars both in Ghana and all over the world.

Judging from the pictures of Kevin's car will agree that there's still alot of work to do for it to meet standard and also be sold nation wide, what do you suggest should be done by the government and notable people in his country?
