Ghanaian Car Company, Kantanka Remodels Car Developed by JHS Graduate
Indigenous Ghana car company, Kantanka Automobile has successfully remodeled the car developed by an enterprising young man Kelvin Odartey who was then a BECE candidate.
It all started when a video of the 18-year-old JHS graduate who built a car with scraps went viral on social media and got people talking.
The young talent subsequently earned a scholarship from CEO of Kantanka Automobile, Kwadwo Safo Junior who offered to mentor him to pursue his passion.
The flashy new car is called the Kantanka Akofena.
“AKOFENA” is Adinkra symbol that translates as a “Sword of War” and symbolizes courage, valor and heroism. Adinkra is an ancient system of symbols, which were typed or hand-painted in various ritual clothing.
