Speaking with Legit.ng's Tunde Ososanya, the young boy said he has been building small aeroplanes since he was seven years but was unable to make them fly.

In his words:

"I actually started building small airplanes since I was 7 years old, but I was unable to make them fly and control them because I didn't have money to get all the necessary materials needed for that, until some friends decided to help me with the materials I needed to make my planes fly, and I was only able to make my planes radio-controlled until 2020 (sic)."

Taofiq said a lot of people have shown interest in his talent and some of them were able to support him financially.
