Coming from a third world continent has never stopped Africans from unleashing their talent and creativity, whether they are young or old. We believe it runs in the African blood to always create something out of our scarce resources.

A South African grade 10 pupil has showcased his creativity which has wowed social media users.


The Grade 10 learner built his own car from scratch

The high school student singlehandedly built his own car from scratch.

>>> This car also must be the work of an auto genius: This crazy Mercedes G-Wagon carries front grille and headlights of a Rolls-Royce Ghost

The pictures of the car were posted on Twitter by a South African user with the handle @JustTlou_.

The user shared a picture of the young man standing beside the car he built himself while calling on other South Africans to retweet the post so it gets to be seen by a kind-hearted individual who could help nurture the boy's talent.

Naijauto learned the young man schools at Tlou Matome Secondary School, a public school in Ga-Ramutla Blouberg rural, and Limpopo. He built the car, with a generator serving as engine and then running on petrol.

@thabisoletokiWe deserve a car that's made in SA and this young man might be the solution.
