Kwadwo Safo Kantanka Jnr, the CEO of Kantanka Automobiles and the entire group of companies has spoken for the first time about a car design similar to one made by a JHS graduate.

In the snippet of an interview he had on ZionFelix Entertainment News, Safo Kantanka indicated that although the two car models look very much alike, they actually have nothing in common.

According to the renowned Ghanaian CEO, he started manufacturing the handmade vehicle long before the news broke that a JHS graduate had created a car.

Kwadwo Safo indicated that this is his first time commenting on the issue because he never felt any inspiration to come out with an explanation to anyone.

"I leave people to talk. I don't have time to explain to anybody and I don't owe anyone an explanation on how I make my cars. I like the boy so much but I don't like how people are making it look like we picked his design".

It appears the vehicle which is now known as Kantanka Akofena only looked like the one invented by the JHS boy called Kelvin Odartey through sheer coincidence.
