Edo State, the heartbeat of the nation, Nigeria, would not forget Saturday, January 6, 2018 in a hurry, for two major reasons; it was the day one of the most illustrious sons of the State, Captain Hosa Okunbor was born and turned diamond age of 60 and the day top shot comedian, Otaghware Otas Onodjayeke, popularly known as I Go Save held the 2018 edition of his musico-comedy show ‘I Go Save Unusual’.
While the newspapers were awash with goodwill messages to the Edo High Chief and billionaire, I Go Save also joined the fray by bestowing an honour on him for his contribution to the development of entertainment industry and empowerment of the youths in Edo State at his sold out show which held at the Hexagon, Benin City, Edo State.
Also honoured for his exemplary leadership and philanthropy is Hon. (Engr.) Omoregie Ogbeide-Ihama.
For I Go Save, it was definitely a moment of glory as there was an unusual turnout for his show. For the first time in Benin City, comedy and music heavyweights like Basketmouth, Tuface Idibia, Harrysong, Akpororo, Buchi, Ogusbaba, Bovi, Maleke and a host of others were present under one roof.
In his usual manner of lending helping hands to upcoming acts, the humour merchant gave the stage first to them before bringing on the entertainment titans which set the show ablaze with eclectic repertoire of good music and jokes.
One of the highlights of the event was when the stage was set alight with a video drop to wish Captain Hosa Okunbor happy birthday which the crowd received with raucous cheers and standing ovation.
