VIDEO: GES theoretical Education won’t help JHS graduate who built his own car — Kantanka details how to build His Talent.


The Junior High School (JHS) graduate of Cosmos International School, Kelvin Odartey who shocked many by building a car with scrap metal, gets help.

Ghanaian-own car maker, Katanka Automobile, has offered to mentor the young man, Kelvin Odartey to achieve his dreams in life.

Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Kantanka Automobile, Kwadwo Safo Jnr told Adom FM will take him on board and mentor him.

“The boy needs a lot of mentoring and we at Kantanka are willing to teach him,” he noted.

He indicated that the 18-year-old is a “born handmade crafter” and the best place for him to nurture his talent is with Kantanka.

Mr Safo Jnr was baffled at the way the young boy used just scrap metals and wood to build such an amazing car.

The Kantanka CEO also disclosed plans by his company to embark on a nationwide talent hunt for wizkids like him to strengthen Ghana’s automobile industry.

“I believe there are many of such people out there so I will soon launch a programme to unearth such talents,” he added.

He urged little Odartey to pursue his dreams and not allow anything to kill his skill.

Meanwhile, the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology has contacted the young man to support in building his talent.

The Ministry of Education is also offering to enroll him in its Technical and Vocational Education and Training programme.

Deputy Education Minister, Gifty Twum Ampofo, said they are elated at the talent of the young boy and will support him through his secondary education.
