According to his Principal at school during the second phase of this interview, we understand that Babatimilehin has transformed during the last quarter of his secondary school and his inventions have also give him the academic boost he needed.
Timi’s first project was a mini power bike, and when asked on how he comes up with his designs and execution, Timilehin says,
“Before doing anything, I draw the plan”
His father who Barrister Daomi, wanted Timi to be a lawyer, he even enrolled him in Art class to fulfill his dreams for hsi kid. As a lawyer, his father said,
