At the early stage of his career, he had series of disappointing moments when he  wasn’t seen as good enough to be on certain events. He was denied performance slots at the night of a thousand laughs four times.

Growing up for I Go Dye was never a bed of roses “ Some said they had silver spoon but for me, there was no spoon at all, it was just fending for myself. All my early days were spent in the village with my grandmother, who nurtured me with so much traditional values. These things later amused my peers when I got back to primary school in Warri. There was so much difficulty for my age mates to comprehend my ideas and values of life.
