Since Gulder Ultimate Search or GUS took off in 2004, the show, which has been described as the most “uncensored” show ever has produced several winners.
Odudu Otu is the reigning champion of season 12 which came to an end on December 25, 2021, after finding the Chest which houses the secret of the proverbial Akolo’s secret brew. He walks home with N50 million worth of prizes, including an SUV and a return ticket to Dubai.
Ezeugo Egwuagwu is the pioneer winner of the show followed by Lucan Chambliss in 2005 while Hector Joberteh won 2006 (he was assassinated by gunmen in September 3, 2017)
The 2021 edition of GUS which is in its 11th season will be hosted by Kunle Remi, who won the 7th season in 2010.
Themed ‘The Age of Craftsmanship’, it is expected to kick off on October 16 and run through December 19.
