Top humour merchant, Fracis Agoda, aka I Go Dye, is a top draw comedian who makes people laugh at will and with the smoothest of ease but when it comes to the plight of the youths in the country, the United Nations Millennium Goals Ambassador doesn’t think its a ‘laughing matter’
His passion for the emancipation and empowerment of the youths which he considers the bedrock of the society and the vehicle to drive the development of the nation was seen and felt at the just concluded Youth Carnival 2014 concert held at Samuel Ogbemudia stadium, Edo state, where he opened his heart to the plights of the youths in the country.
Before a crowd of over fifteen thousand youths, intellectuals, technocrats, political leaders, members from the State House of Representative, members of the State Executive council and the host himself, the Executive Governor of Edo State, Comrade Adam Oshiomhole, I Go Dye delivered a stirring speech on the renaissance of the youths, that not only entranced the crowd but got them on their feet to give the humour merchant a standing ovation.
No doubt the night was a spectacle of glamour and glitz with an array of top stars like Banky W. Wande Coal, Sound Sultan, Terry G. Timaya, Bastketmouth, Buchi, I go Save, Wizkid among others but it was the speech from I Go Dye that hung in the air and probably in the hearts of many. But for those who know him very well that must have come as no surprise because the ace comedian has been at the forefront of inspiring youths towards self belief and discovery, while challenging government and those in positions of authority to advance the lots of the common man and most especially, the youths
