- Sibahle Zwane is just 10 years old
- However, he can work out complex math calculations as well as a calculator
- Videos of him showcasing his genius ability have gone viral
The 10-year-old boy who has amazed South Africans with his stunning talent at math is simply looking to make some cash on the side.
As Briefly.co.za reported, videos of Sibahle Zwane's mesmerising exploits have gone viral on social media.
The videos show the Lenasia math genius working out complex sums like a calculator — and within seconds.
According to TimesLIVE, the Grade 4 pupil charges just R2 for every correct answer he provides. His mom, Mbali Zwane, said he makes up to R200 a day.
Mbali said she first noticed Sibahle's exceptional ability when he was in Grade 2. She has applied for scholarships to take him to an institution where his talent can be developed.
Sibahle, who aspires to be a pilot when he grows up, said he can't really explain how he manages to make complex calculations in his head:
I just see the numbers in my head. I like numbers more than anything else.
In the meantime, he's making good money from strangers who are blown away by his talent, proving that he has a good business sense as well.
