I Go Dye is Building Himself a Luxurious Home in Benin – Take a Look



I Go Dye on BellaNaija - March 2014 - BellaNaija - 024

Now that’s what you call a mansion.

Nigerian comedian I Go Dye is clearly “balling” this 2014; he’s building a luxurious home in Benin City, Edo. The house which is still under construction, is inspired by French luxury castle – Chateaux De Reves.

In an exclusive interview with Encomium, he reveals that the house will have a lawn tennis court, two swimming pools – one indoor and outdoor, three kitchens, lounges/bars and a spectacular double staircase in the living room.

This will be his second home in Benin, he already has a 7-bedroom house.

On where he gets the money to build such houses: “There is always a reward for hard work and entertainment is not an exception. Most renowned artistes in the country are living based on the remunerations that they get from performances. It is a professional job that offers financial rewards. So, it will be wrong for someone to assume otherwise as if the entertainment industry cannot afford the success surrounding artistes in recent times.

Most high profile comedians like me handle corperate events that don’t enjoy the kind of publicity that the music artistes do. So, most often little is heard most times about how comedians earn their money. Sometimes in a single event some comedians are paid between N2.5 and N4 million. When you then evaluate how many of such performances within 365 days that they will be contracted, then you wouldn’t be too surprised what the average comedian is worth.”

    The first picture made me think – needs more windows then I saw the sketch!
    Lovely concept and definitely a more reasonable and wise investment than buying flashy cars.
    Well done!

    Maintenance is key when building such houses

    So because of maintenance he should live under a tree till he dies? At least that one is easy to maintain, all he has to do is water it and occasionally fertilise with compost. Mcheeeew!!!

    I am with Ayo and Efe on their different posts. I don’t know why people always think it is jealousy when people ask valid questions. This house with it’s palatial stair case is okay right now BUT let’s say he keeps this house until his old age, how will he go up those stairs to his bedroom? Forget his old age, what about his parents as they visit? I hope he has it designed to where there are a few rooms down stairs. Also, in the entertainment industry, one is here today and gone tomorrow. How many old comedians can you name in the Nigeria that have sold out shows? He is not always going to be at the top, maintaining a home like this takes work so it is a valid point that the posters made. I hope he has money invested in other ventures so that when his star dims as it does for EVERYONE, he can still take care of his property. It is not a bad wish, it is the way the world works, everyone has to make room for another person. There was a time Halle Berry was the be all end all but now it’s Lupita Nyong’o, stars will wax and wane.
