The tweep shared an image of the Nigerian engineering genius along with some pictures of the car.
Some Nigerians bemoaned the level of brain-drain that is prevalent in the country, others wondered the idea behind the car's shape and style.
"What's the idea behind the funny shape all the time. As per cartoon."
"Nice one, but why do electric cars always look this funny tho?"
"Nigerian Engineering genius..." and not Muslim, Christian, Hausa, Igbo or Yoruba.... as par 'new world sentimentality reportage syndrome'.
"Another good one by a Nigerian as usual."
''Tag Jelani.. He must see this. An employment opportunity should be offered to him at kona electric cars by Hyundai."
"Don't mind them sir. They thought they have monopoly of invention and creativity in Nigeria."
Meanwhile, Briefly News a social media user, Proph Ngobeni, shared with Facebook users why he decided to stay in Mzansi. Ngobeni revealed the level of creativity in the country is something that inspires him.
