And at the turn of 16, he had built an RC scale airplane that flies which he called "Donko King".

His talents and inventions came into light when a video of him riding his locally-made motorbike hit the internet.

In a chat with Legit.ng regional correspondent Duru Victor, Kenneth, who just completed his secondary school education, lamented how lack of funds and financial wherewithal has hampered his desires of creating robots and further consolidating on his invention as his father is without work while the family lives off his mother's bean cakes business.

He said: "I discovered my talents when I was 7 and have been building things ever since including locally-made remote-controlled cars, single seater aircraft, two-seater sea boat and the most recent is the motorbike.

"My major challenge so far has been finance. I do some menial jobs to make sure I invented and built something."
