I Go Dye Says Entertainers Have To Help Less Privileged
A-list comedian, Francis Agoda known world over as I Go Dye has charged entertainers to use their talents and resources to lift up the needy.
The Warri-born humour merchant made the declaration while announcing the second edition of his Delta State talent hunt tagged “Sorting Out Raw Talents (SORT)’ under the aegis of Francis Agoda Path of Honour, FAPOH Delta Talent and Brain Ambassador project, which he started last year.
“We can’t be really fulfilled if our talents, knowledge, and positions in life do not positively inspire anyone or give them reasons to smile. The true beauty of our lives is kept aglow when we transfer our legacies to the weak and those who really need our support to keep their hopes alive,” Agoda said.
Speaking further he unveiled plans for this year’s edition of his talent hunt project, adding that the scope will be broader to allow more participants from more local government areas of Delta State to participate.
“Last year project SORT auditions, saw us through three different local government areas of Delta State, namely; Warri, Agbor and Asaba. Each winner went home with the sum of 500 thousand naira and the grand finale was held at the Grand Hotel Asaba with one of our benefactors, Executive Governor of Delta State, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa in attendance.
“This year, we are unveiling FAPOH Delta Talent and Brain AMBASSADOR PROJECT SORT 2020. We hope to expand the reach of contestants to other local government areas in Delta State,” he said in a statement made while unveiling plans for the 2020 edition.”
Continuing, he added, “Auditions will commence on March, 12, 2020, in Ughelli Glass House Event Centre. Winners at the auditions from the different local councils of Delta State will go home with 500 thousand naira cash, which also qualifies them for the grand finale. Once again a brand new car will be won with N2 million as star prize.
First runner-up will go home with N1.5 million while the 3rd price will win N1 million.
The Ughelli leg of FAPOH auditioning is in partnership with @lawrence_oriowo Lawrence Imareyo Foundation, an NGO which saw the need to help and support restive youths. At this time of our lives, we are all indebted to our immediate environment; let’s continue to support the growth of our youths.
I want to use this medium to appreciate everyone who is impacting our world through creativity and resource advancement. You can use your craft in whatever field to address the challenges facing the country. My profound appreciation to you all for giving hopes to the dreams of many young Nigerians.”
