The six aircrafts at Ibrahim's art centre used to be mobile but had been reportedly kept at the Kotoka International Airport for so long that they started getting rusty.
Now, the young man allows school children and other locals to explore them at no cost, hoping it will make them dream big.
Ibrahim Mahama was born in Tamale but raised in Accra.
He attended Pope John's Secondary School in Koforidua after which he went to KNUST in 2006 to study Painting and Sculpture, followed by his master's degree and PhD.
According to Ibrahim Mahama (brother of John Mahama), it was only through God's intervention and destiny that he met a man he called Uncle Seth who helped him to start his business.
The businessman made the revelation while giving a testimony in church recently. He was at the Grace Chapel for the launch of a book called Destiny.
