This 19-Year-Old Ghanaian Wanted to Take On Google and YouTube with His Video Search Engine.

He probably can’t go head to head with the likes of YouTube, but it is great to see him try his hands at something.

Meet Gabriel Opare, a 19-year-old Ghanian student who built a video search engine called Mudclo which allows you to discover, search and stream video content from multiple sources in one place. So, you can get results from YouTube and other websites as well.

According to him:

Mudclo will challenge the dominance of YouTube. 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, mine combines the power of YouTube and two other video hosting websites in order to create Mudclo.”

Personally, I am not so hyped about Mudclo, but I loved that Gabriel was willing to try and FYI, he is not a Computer science student, instead, he is a 300-level Sociology student of the University of Ghana who taught himself to code by taking online courses during his free time.

Although I still don’t think that Mudclo (Which is currently down) can take on Google or YouTube, Gabriel has definitely got a fan in me. So, here is to you Gabriel:

Creating history... One review at a time.
