Over the years, I Go Dye has attempted to address some of the societal ills through his works. Having always been a high flyer even as a child, he is 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.
In these last 25 years, I Go Dye has always been at the forefront of youth development and empowerment, a charge he has also extended to top Nigerian professionals.
Widely Known for his sophistication and style, in his first show held in 2009 in Benin, I Go Dye singlehandedly featured the entire Mo Hits crew including D’Banj, Wande Coal, D Prince, Ikechuku, MI and others while he also sold out the 02 Arena in London to mark his 20 years on stage in 2015.
I Go Dye’s experience as a victim of the Warri crisis between the Ijaws and the Itsekiris, where he was shot and lost some of his friends prompted him to 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.
