Young Nigerian Becomes World's Highest Paid Robotics Engineer

26-year-old Nigerian, Silas Adekunle is now the highest paid in the field of Robotic Engineering. Adekunle, credited for building the world’s first gaming robot, achieved this feat after signing a new deal with the world’s reputable software manufacturers, Apple Inc.
The mouthwatering deal is worth Millions of Dollars.
Leadership reports that the robotics engineer was also named as “Someone to Watch in 2018” by the Black Hedge Fund Group. Adekunle is currently the founder and CEO of Reach Robotics, a company developing the world’s first gaming robots.
He also recently graduated with a 1st class degree and has four years’ background in robotics. Born in Lagos, Nigeria, Adekunle studied in Nigeria before relocating to the UK as a teenager.

After completing his secondary school education, he proceeded to the University of the West of England where he graduated
with a first class in Robotics. In 2013, he founded Reach Robotics and developed a lot of experience on robotics within a space of four years.

Adekunle was also a team leader of Robotics In Schools programme, a programme which encourages and pays attention to students in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). The programme encouraged him to develop robotics to make education more entertaining for STEM students.
In 2017, MekaMon, he released the world’s first gaming robot, with the special ability to customise the gaming bot to perform personalised functions.
The initial launch of Mekamon sold 500 bots, generating $7.5 million, according to The Guardian. Following this feat, Adekunle received support from various organisations including London Venture Partners ($10 million) and in the same year, his company, Reach Robotics signed a deal with Apple securing exclusive sales in Apple stores.
Sadly, Adekunle can't help Nigeria as he won't have time for NYSC drama.

He found himself in an enabling environment where hard work and excellence are rewarded and he is excelling and getting the rewards for his excellence and hard work. Kudos and congratulations to him.
The Nigerian political leaders from the president to the leaders at the local government level should create the enabling environment for Nigerians who live inside Nigeria to excel and get rewarded for their hard work and excellence.
The current environment in which Nigerians who live inside Nigeria have found themselves is strangulating!!! And this is caused by the incompetency, mediocrity, wrong steps and wrong actions and inactions of the Nigerian political leaders, both past and present, especially the present!!! It is high time Nigerian political leaders began to do things the right way and do things that would enhance the welfare and security of Nigerians so that the enabling environment for Nigerians to excel inside Nigeria can be created.

We only praise people doing well outside our country. If he were to be living here with us especially willing to contribute to the growth of the country, we'll be looking for his downfall. We need to look at ourselves. Are we truly patriotic and altruistic?
