Check out the African monarch who works as a German mechanic (when he's not ruling his people via Skype).

The 67-year-old's official royal status is 'King Togbe Ngoryifia Cephas Kosi Bansah' - but he spends most of his time in oily overalls fixing cars.
Céphas grew up in Ghana, he moved to Germany in 1970 before he was appointed king. 
His kingdom, Gbi in Eastern Ghana on the border of Togo, consists of 300,000 Ewe people.

This is the African king who leads two very contrasting lives - as a part-time monarch and a full-time mechanic.

Dressed in all his royal finery, Céphas Bansah, helps to govern more than two million Ghanaian and Togolese people.
But despite being regarded as a 'superior and spiritual chief of Ewe people' in Togo, he also works full-time mechanic in Germany - governing his people over Skype.

 He originally moved to Germany when his grandfather, the then king, encouraged him to train there as a mechanic.
After finishing his studies and gaining full citizenship, he settled and set up his own garage in Ludwigshafen.
He continued living a peaceful life until 1987 - when he received a Fax which would change his life forever.
