Hello there, my name is Benji Elegba. I was born on 20th April, 1982 and I am totally smitten and fascinated by cars right from a very young age. I was given a challenge to restore a ramshackle car and eventually sell it, which I did and sold for almost twice the asking price. This started my journey of buy, customizing and selling cars through my University days. After I graduated from University I took a job with one of the top tier car rental companies in Ghana but my entrepreneurial aspirations got the better of me.
I later resigned and set-up Purple Wheels, a one stop shop for all your auto repair needs. It is situated right in the heart of Accra. Growing up, most of my friends spent their weekends playing football but I would always follow my mentor to his car engineer’s shop because I was intrigued and curious about cars how cars worked and I wanted to learn more about it. I’ve always wondered what was under a bonnet or what gave a certain car a unique sound, my curiosity has led me to so many places, meeting fellow car enthusiasts, Journalist, Industry experts, dealers, trade shows and seen some beautiful cars in my time. Join me as we travel the world in pursuit of cars, review the best products on the market, learn secrets of the trade and bring you some of my personal tips on anything cars. STAY TUNED!! ￼
