Kwadwo Safo, a self-described apostle, has 250 apprentices working for him building Kantanka cars. Kantanka creations have a Ghanaian flair due to the car dashboards and TVs being made from locally grown trees. Kantanka-branded vehicles have features, such as engines that start and are controlled with a gold watch and solar and electric cars. Products waiting to hit the market include Kantanka pick-ups, buses, TVs, aircrafts, and programmable robots.

Safo recently launched his latest SUV called “Kantanta Odeneho II,” which doesn’t rely on fuel or gas power but rather multiple batteries. This titanic machine uses about 13 batteries to power it. In 2013, Safo debuted a four-wheel-drive vehicle, which could be started with a walking stick, and according to the inventor, his inspiration comes from the biblical story of Moses who used a walking stick to divide the Red sea.
