  • be right back, gotta go make something!!!!

  • Watching this makes me smile. It makes me know that it is not just a select few in privileged countries who are benefiting from technological advancements in society.

    No doubt our friend Kelvin will continue to change more lives in the future, and be a mentor to many in his community and the world.

    Keep it up DJ Focus.
