Ghanaian Teen Develops a Search Engine That Can Rival Google's YouTube and website crashes in less 24hours
Barely 48hours of pronouncement of Gabriel Opare, a 19 year old from Ghana who developed a search engine, the website is in a crashed state at the time of this reporting..
"More and more talent continues to emerge on the African continent as a 19 year old from the University of Ghana has developed a new video search engine that could rival Google and YouTube.
(It is imperative for adequate preparation work done before going public. It will be our joy to rejoice with our African brother's success breakthrough when it is not a laughable play-thing, get fully prepared next time. The website has crashed before it's proclamation as going to compete with google/youtube! LOL!)
The student has developed Mudclo.com, a website that has been described as almost matching Google's YouTube. The metasearch engine allows users to discover, search and stream video content from multiple sources in one place. Surprisingly, Gabriel Opare is working towards his Bachelor of Science degree in Sociology. But his intense love for technology, web and graphic design has culminated in the development of Mudclo.
Gabriel believes Mudclo has the capability to challenge YouTube and to become a global thing. Gabriel had this to say, "Mudclo will challenge the dominance of YouTube. I believe that my business is good enough and that it can scale globally. It is a legitimate point to say that YouTube is a video hosting website, but they are two different entities. While YouTube is a video hosting website, mine combines the power of YouTube and two other video hosting websites in order to create Mudclo."
Despite some of the negativity enshrouding Africa, the young talents continue to scale great heights and with this remarkable rate of technological advancements, Africa is certainly becoming a force to reckon with.
With Opare's invention, hopefully many Africans can be inspired to venture into creating new products that tackle our various problems and that give Africa an identity that is very superior".
