Last month, US-based Ghanaian architectural technologist Iddris Sandau was honoured with a Technology and Entrepreneur Award at the fourth annual Culture Creators 2019 Innovators and Leaders Awards held in Beverley Hills.
Iddris created the world’s first smart retail store experience alongside much-loved late rapper Nipsey Hussle.
Aged 10, Iddris learnt computer programming using a public library, and by 13 had worked as an intern on several Google projects, included Google Plus.
At 15, he created a smartphone app that made it easier for his classmates to find their classrooms. That same year he was presented with the Presidential Scholar Award by Barack Obama.
