Oladele Ogbeyemi, a young graduate and serving member of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), has succeeded in redesigning a Mazda 323 car using scrap metals and other such wastes.

Ogbeyemi, whose profile reads that he graduated from the Yaba College of Technology, a tertiary institution based in Lagos, Nigeria, said he achieved this design during the recent lockdown imposed by the country’s government.

Expressing excitement at being able to complete recreating the car, he said the project cost him six months of his allowances as a youth corps member.

“As a present NYSC member, (LA/19C/11514), this project kept me busy during the lockdown.

“My inspiration in creating this art piece is as a result of my passion in converting discarded materials into art,” he said.

Ogbeyemi noted that ordinarily, these discarded materials cause environmental pollution in several ways yet, “I have found a way to recycle and convert them into sculpted arts.

“Accoiling these materials which consist of scrap metal, plastics, spoilt generator parts, retired tools etc and refashioning this Mazda 323 brings some sense of fulfillment to my heart.

“Yet, this is just a glimpse of what I have inside of me.”

Noting how difficult it was to achieve this feat as a result of the economic challenges at the period, he revealed that the car almost went on fire several times during the processes of sculpting and welding.
