Humans have been blessed to constantly find ways to make their work easier, faster and simpler.
Africans may not have the technological advancement that western society has, but we have always used what is available to help ourselves.
A young African boy has used his innovative and creative mind to make his work easier.

This is why the young man decided to beat the system. With some mechanical engineering skills and technical know-how, he built a truck that transports many water cans from one place to another.
He used four wheels, a working mechanical engine, metal rods and wood to build the vehicle's body.
It worked out for him as the contraption was able to convey more than five 25-litre gallons easily.
In the video, he started the machine and even drove it out to show it worked. He considered the type of road in his vicinity and built the vehicle accordingly.

Nigerian boy constructs G-Wagon
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that commendations had followed a TikTok video of a Nigerian boy who built a G-Wagon. Kingsley Reigns Idoko, a TikTok user, posted the video on Saturday, December 31, and he showed the boy driving the car around.
The young boy drove the G-Wagon into a compound, and his family started hailing him for his technical prowess. The car, painted black and made to look exactly like a 'G-Wagon', moved seamlessly without issues. Kingsley said the young kid was his brother but failed to explain how he built the car.
He captioned the video: "My brother constructed a G-Wagon please help me repost." TikTok users have, however, commended the boy for his effort. Many of them called for support for such people who show technical abilities.
