Talents are the inborn traits and skills which are displayed by a person in a specific trade with a lot of easiness, without the acquired knowledge in the educational system. The problem is in Africa children take a long period to identify their talents and when they use them, some African parents discourage them and encourage them to continue with academic struggles in educational system and block their talents. Areas or trades or disciplines where talents are excellently emulated and proved correct include poetry, music, dancing, sports, writing, preaching and so on. The objective is to study the best way to identify talents when children are young in primary level of education. The study would adopt descriptive-analytical method. The results are one, people realise their talents when they are old and cannot exploit them fully, two some talents exploited properly have transformed people from poverty to wealth within a short period of time, leading to economic growth and regional development for example athletics. It is concluded that the system of education in some countries in Africa does not allow children to identify their talents in early stages of education. It is recommended the governments to change the systems of education and introduce the system of education which would aid children identify talents in early stages of education.
