The visionary comedian and social crusader has over the years made meaningful impacts right from childhood. He was the first high school student in Africa to build a flying helicopter, a hovercraft ship, radio transmitter and a solar table fan which earned him a scholarship to study structural engineering at the prestigious New York University.
But his passion for comedy brought him wider acceptance and popularity which he realized was a means to address challenges affecting millions of Nigeria youths.
He was a victim of the Warri Crisis between the Ijaws and the Itsekiris, where he was shot and lost some of his friends. This experience made him shoot a documentary, “Peace in Sight” in 2008 for the United Nations to promote peace and rural development.
That same year, he toured the world with America Point Gate to promote peace and fight against drug abuse and racism.
In this last 25years, I Go Dye has always been at the fore front of youth development and empowerment, a charge he has also extended to top Nigerian professionals.
