19-year-old Ghanaian university student, Gabriel Opare, has been making the news in the tech industry for building a new search engine to contend with Google and Youtube.

According to Opare, his new search engine, Mudclo, will challenge Google and YouTube domination of the internet.

Mudclo is a free search engine for videos where one can discover and stream videos from the diverse locations on the internet all in one place.

Opare said "I believe that my business is good enough and that it can scale globally. It is a legitimate point to say that YouTube is a video hosting website, but they are two different entities. While YouTube is a video hosting website, Mudclo combines the power of YouTube and two other video hosting websites in order to create Mudclo".

Opare is a level 300 sociology student of the University of Ghana who taught himself how to code by taking online courses during his free time.

He has shown that youths do make good positive use of the internet beyond the several assertions that a lot of youths engage in cyber crime among other fraudulent activities on the internet.
