Two-year-old Jeremiah Awura Addo has been described as the smartest toddler in Ghana, if not the world. This child prodigy can recant all the books of the Bible with ease, in addition to reciting verses, naming animals by their scientific names and also letting you know the capitals of more than 140 countries worldwide. Modern-day Einstein-most definitely.
Jeremiah’s father said in an interview with Kofi TV that Jeremiah has never been to school and is as smart as his older brother. Because he cannot pay the school fees, as a result of being unemployed, he teaches both of the children at home.
“It started when he was one and half years old. I realized that he could sing – word to word- any song I play at home, so I decided to teach him certain things if he will be able to remember,”
Richard Kofi Addo said in his interview. Little Jeremiah has become an international celebrity where everyone wants to know just how he does it. ”His mind is like a magnet,” Richard Addo told the BBC in an interview. “Anything you teach him, it sticks very fast and he remembers very easily.”
We have a feeling that this is not the last that we will hear from the smartest kid in the world. At only two-years-old, Jeremiah is just beginning.
