A multi-skilled businessman identified as Jonas who builds and repairs home theatre systems and converts computer monitors into television sets has disclosed that he is naturally gifted.
Jonas, 28, received his junior high school education at Nkawkaw in the Eastern Region but couldn't further his studies because of his deprived background.
Despite having no formal education in engineering, Jonas skillfully builds and repairs home theatres, amplifiers, monitors, and other electronic gadgets using his God-given skill.
After completing junior high school, Jonas' father brought him to Accra to acquire a skill because he could not afford to pay his fees to further his education.
Speaking in an interview with DJ Nyaami of SVTV Africa, Jonas disclosed that he realised he was gifted with the ability to repair and build electronic gadget at a young age.
He however disclosed his father later enrolled him at Desmond Electronics to improve his God-given talent.
''I have been doing this for three years. It's a gift from God because while I was growing up, I was training kids in electronics. I built an amplifier despite having no formal training then. I also built a car with a controller that received massive praise from people.''
The businessman who runs his venture under the brand name Jonas Technology indicated that he aspires to open up his shop to enable him to train other people.
