Second winner of I Go Dye’s Delta talent hunt project emerges in Agbor
The second winner from the ongoing I Go Dye’s Delta talent hunt project tagged ‘Sorting Out Raw Talents’ has emerged in Agbor, Delta State. The winner, Blessing Edeyibo went home with prize money of 500 thousand naira.
The event which held at the Royal Court Yard, on February 21, 2019, saw Blessing Edeyigbo soaring far above the other contestants. Though it was a keenly contested challenge which was witnessed by thousands of youths but it was a clear cut job for the judges made up of notable figures in the entertainment industry. The judges include music act, Faze, music producer, Nas T, OAP Monique, Maleke and comedian Ghana Must Go.
The SORT (Sorting Out Raw Talents) project which was conceived and executed by Francis Agoda, popularly known as I Go Dye is part of the comedian’s Francis Agoda Path of Honour (FAPOH) initiative, designed to identify and reward excellence in various fields of human endeavours. The Delta Talent Hunt aspect of the ‘SORT’ project commenced on February 13, 219 in Warri, with Mr Douglas walking away with 500 thousand naira as the winner.
According to the comedian whose commitment to world peace and youth empowerment has been severally publicly demonstrated, the big idea behind ‘SORT’ is to help government checkmate the issue of youth restiveness in the country, occasioned by lack of availability of enough jobs to engage the youths.
Speaking with journalists, I Go Dye said, “In a country of about 200 million people, where youths believe that the only way they can make it is by travelling abroad, we need platforms to engage and make them productive citizens of this country. In our own little way we have launched project SORT to help the government in curbing youth restiveness and thuggery by helping them to discover their God-given talent and harness it for the good of the country.”
Continuing, he added, “This year we are concentrating on peace and talent development through FAPOH with #igodyeprojectsort ‘Sorting Out Raw Talents’ which is ongoing and would assist us to discover talented youths and reward them according to their overall performance. I appreciate everyone that has been supportive and following the proceedings of I Go Dye project ‘SORT’ .
“We sincerely appreciate your thoughtfulness and goodwill towards us, inspiring the youths and adding your time, wishes and prayers to motivate and encourage our youths. We cannot wait for government alone to build our local communities, collectively we all can develop and bring lasting peace against youth restiveness and other forms of anti-social vices.
@Be the voice and hope that will make someone smile now and in the future. The commitment to derive considerable peace is sacrosanct. Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State has supported this project because it will improve the human capital development of the youths and promote self-resourcefulness. Asaba is next, we are closer to the grand finale.”
The grand finale is set to hold in Asaba on March 5, 2019, where the first winner of Warri and the second winner of Agbor will be part of the final showdown. The winner who will be crowned Delta Talent and Brain Ambassador will also walk away with 2019 Hyundai Accent sedan car.
