Peeps impressed with his talent
Quincy Quaye said:
”A good seed planted in bad soil struggles to grow. Clearly, he is gifted, but this society we live in will not nurture him. His gift was for the benefit of the entire nation. Elon Musk and co are not better than him because of poor nurturing. We may sit down and let his gift go dormant.”

”I think most Ghanaian schools should be made technical by looking at the unemployment rate after graduation from the university. This is pure talent with a little help he can become a blessing to GH.”
