Young Africans have continued to show that the continent is blessed with many talented individuals, and this 17-year-old boy joins the list of innovators after he built an excavator. 

Young and passionate Solomon is a student of the Methodist Technical Institute in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region of Ghana, who used locally-sourced materials to build an excavator.

Nana Poyona, who shared the TikTok video, said Solomon needs to be pushed forward, while a Facebook page dedicated to highlighting the brighter side of Ghana, also shared the video of the gifted young boy demonstrating how the device works using a small controller board.

When Solomon was asked how he came about the excavator, he revealed that he made the machine himself. Many social media users were impressed, and have urged the government and corporate organisations to invest in Solomon.

One Quincy Quaye said, “A good seed planted in a bad soil struggles to grow. Clearly, he is gifted, but this society we live in will not nurture his gift for the benefit of the entire nation. Elon Musk and co are not better than him, but because of poor nurturing, we may sit down and let his gift go dormant😔.”

In many other videos, the talented young man showcased how he built the excavator and how it functions.
