The internet seems to be flooded with innovations from young talented Africans lately. A few days ago, we reported about a young talented 15-year-old Ghanaian, Thomas Owusu who built a standing fan out of wood and plastic materials that runs on electricity in the space of two days. Here is another young talent, Eighteen-year-old Ghanaian, Gabriel Boadu who crafted a helicopter out of plastic wastes. Boadu who is yet to see a helicopter in real, made one branded in Ghana’s colours – red, yellow, green, and black.
Apart from the helicopter, Gabriel has said to have also invented a locally-made tricycle popular called ‘Aboboya’ and a phone charger using cooking oil and also from plastic waste. Truly incredible!
Gabriel, who hails from Kwahu Affram Plains North District of the Eastern Region of Ghana, attends Tease Presbyterian Junior High School in Kwahu. His manager, Quajo Aboagye explained that Gabriel is indeed talented and would need support to keep up with the good work he is doing. Mr. Aboagye indicated his desire to have Gabriel and his work shown to the world at large so he could obtain the necessary support.
Africa especially is indeed blessed with talented people. We hope the constituted authorities can see these innovations and help to support these young talented innovators so as not to kill these dreams and talents.
