''He said Shatta Wale can come for it for his music video shoot since he's for the street boys and he's also from the street. Shatta kindly showed him some love. It could be his turning point. We know what you can do. Tag him till he sees this,'' he captioned the video.
In a subsequent post, the social media personality uploaded images in which he posed in the whip. Kwaku Sylvester also posed beside his vehicle.
In an interview, Kwaku Sylvester told YEN.com.gh that he built the whip using locally acquired scraps.
''I built the car from scratch using scraps, which took a while. I used my own resources. All the materials I used for the vehicle were locally acquired. There were some difficulties at first, but I was determined to succeed.
''It's not my first invention; I've built a motorbike and other electronic devices, including an agro machine,'' he told YEN.com.gh.
