Doing speedy calculations does not make you a mathematician or math genius.

How many have you done in life?

Never heard of this, weldone OP

If he was born in dis present era he would have probably made it big in mathematics or computer related field

That's if he's outside Nigeria.

If he was in Nigeria, he would be padding budgets or he would be a yahoo Boy.

Mental calculator is not necessarily genius. Many people with low iq's have done better.

Wow, unbelievable. Please we need more of such enlightening piece on front page.
Modern African youths have to be fed with more knowledge about their history and events around the world for us to know where we are as a people and what we need to do to progress as a people. Not all the unnecessary gossip gists and nonsense that litter the frontpage all the time.

It does, especially when you consider the resources available to him and the circumstance of the time.We talking early 18th century here.

There is ambitious and there is stupid. You should go and read about what is done to escaped slaves during that era. And even if he had escaped, what are the prospects of an unlearned black escaped slave anywhere? Where exactly was he going to use those skills? At least he made it to the history books.

So, how would he have escaped? Where should he have escaped to? And most importantly, why would he have wanted to escape?
