    Published By:

    Nigerian comedian Francis Adoga popularly known as Igodye, goes down memory lane as he recounts how he had to sleep in a brothel due to a lack of money for accommodation.

    Igodye posted a throwback picture of himself on his Instagram page as he talks about the struggles he faced at the beginning of his career.

    He also noted how the throwback picture of him expressed rare zeal and hope.


    This picture express a rare story of zeal and hope, this was 23years ago, Dec 26th 2000 with the producer of night of a thousand laugh Mr Opa Williams at Port hacourt Nite of a thousand laugh event. On this day, I wasn’t able to sleep in a hotel because I was paid 10k monthly before the event, I didn’t knew my accomodation,transportation and feeding was part of the 10k.

    It was when I got to PH that I was informed of my logistics, the cheapest hotel I could get was 5k and I had only 2k with me, 10k don almost finish since October when dem give me.

    The only option available was to cross to a joint where girls were staying, the one I met for accomodation requested for 1k but insisted that the space to sleep will be available by 2am when all her customers don come finished so I agreed.

    After my performance I went there to sleep, my greatest surprise was that around 5am people still come knock door wipe, she say make I wait outside for 30 minutes. Na the noise make me go Water Line that morning find motor wey dey go Warri.

    This is just a simple  story for anyone to understand that no matter the difficulty you are going through today, there is a brighter day ahead, we must keep faith alive and believe in the beauty of our dreams.

    NOTE Chris Oyakhilome and Chris Okotie nor fry hair reach me that year. Francis Agoda”.
