A talented young Nigerian boy displayed his creative abilities by designing a replica of a one-storey building using local materials.
The young boy identified as Timilehin showed off his architectural skills in a video, which was shared by Zainab Eniola Kashaam on LinkedIn. The masterpiece was a replica of a one-story building with a car park.
The replica had two cars parked in the car park and painted with matching colours. The young lad said that he was still in school but did such projects regularly to support himself.
Zainab encouraged the budding architect with kind words and monetary gifts to support his hard work. While sharing the video, she said:
“On my way back from work yesterday, I came across this young man on the roadside advertising his architectural work. I felt led in the spirit to stop by and have a chat with him because I was very impressed to see a young champ trying all he could to get noticed and advertise his hard work.”
“I don’t need the architectural work, but I supported his business with the little I could. It’s important to support young champs who have dreams and vision and help them make those dreams become reality.”
The shared post amassed positive reactions from LinkedIn users. Here are some of the reactions:
Offor Emmanuel said: “You did well to support him. Nigeria get talent; na leaders they don’t have. God will help us get it right come 2023.”
Ibekwe Ezeorah commented: “Creativity in action. Africa lacks support towards creative minds. Commenting for more outreach.”
Debbieolusholaakinfe Akinfe wrote: “Amazing, the Government should pick this young man and work with him and scholarship.”
