Kelvin is a young Ghanaian with a passion for cars. His love for building miniature cars, planes, and helicopters goes back to his early childhood. As he grew up, he set himself a challenge: to make a life-size vehicle with his own hands, using recycled materials. A dream came true!

The YouTuber and globetrotter Drew Binsky brought Kelvin out of anonymity to reveal him to the world. On a visit to Ghana, not far from the capital, Accra, the man discovered Kelvin’s car, a vehicle built entirely by the young Ghanaian from recycled materials.

Equipped with an engine, shock absorbers, and a dashboard all recovered from a motorbike, the vehicle has a body made of container steel and is even equipped with a radio and speakers to rock Ghanaian songs.

Kelvin’s car is the result of three years of parts collection and construction, the fulfillment of a child’s dream. Indeed, the young man’s mother confided that her son had developed a passion since childhood for making small models of cars, planes, and helicopters capable of flying at a certain height before falling back down.

In spite of its preferably homemade appearance, Kelvin’s vehicle is the object of keen curiosity and palpable admiration every time it hits the road. But the young prodigy’s mother confessed to being afraid every time her son starts driving the car.


The young carmaker’s talent is undeniable, and he would benefit from the support and encouragement of the authorities in his country.

In Africa, many talents are dying out in many countries, in total anonymity, nipped in the bud for lack of support. The affirmation of Africa’s technological independence requires the detection and promotion of these local geniuses. Let’s hear it!
