Cursory: An 18-year-old Ghanaian boy has created a social media platform called Buzz Chat, the project started during the lockdown period in 2020 when school was on vacation, says he plans to make it a household name in 3 years.
18-year-old Frederick Abila, a Ghanaian high school graduate who recently completed Labone SHS has created a social media platform to rival Twitter.
In an interview with Tales Of Africa, the young man indicated that he was inspired to created a social media platform when he started opening a PayPal account and realized it was not accessible in Ghana.
Frederick said, he decided to start the project during the lockdown period when he did not have to go to school.
He says that initially, his parents decided to pay for the hosting of the website but he was unable to accommodate more than 100 people but money was being spent on developing it regularly.
“My parents realized too much money was being wasted, they decided to stop spending on it and so I was forced to find an alternative and ended up creating the IOS and Android users,” he further mentioned.
“I want to be able to employ a lot of people in Ghana and have Buzz Chat become a very common name. Currently, I’m the only person running all the apps and the website as well. That’s my vision for the next three years,” the Elmina-born gentleman said.
