Popular comedian, Francis Agoda aka [I Go Dye], is surely a delight to encounter whether on stage or offstage.
In fact, there is never a dull moment with the funny bone, and after spending some time in his presence, one will most likely confess ‘I go die with laughter o.’
We ran into the Delta State-born rib-cracker at an event recently where he had just finished ‘murdering’ the crowd with laughter, vanguard press quickly accosted him before he could hastily leave the scene of the ‘crime.’
Surely, he must have gotten into trouble on account of his jokes before, we were curious to know.
But his face assumed a more serious countenance as he replied, ‘No, I’ve never gotten into trouble because of my jokes before.
I try as much as possible to educate people with my jokes on stage. Apart from laughing, there must be a message to be passed across to people with every joke.
So I don’t see any reason why I will be harassed because I’m a Nigerian. If you don’t want people to embarrass you, you have to respect yourself; and that is what I always try to do.’
