As the first edition of the Gulder Ultimate Search celebrity showdown comes to exciting end this weekend, many followers of the show have been speculating on who is likely to emerge the winner out of the remaining three contenders.
Two Musicians , Daddy Showkey and Dare Art Alade, and one Actor (Emeka Ike), are the last three celebrities standing out of the initial 10 recruited for the reality TV show.
Of the three, odds favour Dare who has really proved to many that his buttie lifestyle, does not have any negative impact in his quest to emerge the winner. For more than three occasions, he came first in the tasks given to them to perform. These achievements are however giving him the impression that he is a strong contender for the Gulder Ultimate Celebrity. He is counting on his past achievements as enough motivations.
Dare is a multi talented, multiple award winning Nigerian international R&B recording artiste, performer, TV presenter, radio DJ who rose to national and international fame in 2004, following his participation in Project Fame in South Africa.
If Dare thinks that he has all the qualities needed to clinch the Ultimate Celebrity title, then he should watch his shoulder because, Daddy Showkey, aka The Ghetto Soldier, also has his eye firmly on the title.
Daddy Showkey has one tactic working for him: â€œElimination of the strongest threat, irrespective of relationship with such a personâ€. This has been working very well for him. For example, he was the arrowhead in the elimination of Princess when he smashed all her pots in one of the tasks.
Obesere Abass and Emeka Ike had at one time or the other tasted the bitter pill of Daddy Showkeyâ€™s elimination plan. Daddy Showkey is also counting on his background as a major factor for victory.
Showkey, as he is fondly called by his teeming fans, is a man that has lived most part of his life in Ajegunle, a Lagos suburb likened to the jungle because of absence of modern infrastructural facilities and any form of comfort that people living in other cities are known for.Â In his words, â€œWith three hefty men in the jungle trying to outwit one another to emerge the Ultimate Celebrity, the fight will be very exciting. But anyway, I hope to win the maiden edition of the celebrity showdown. I would not want to disappoint my fansâ€, he said.
Emeka Ike is however counting on the talking drum that Muma Gee presented to him as a parting gift when she was evicted from the show. He always reminds those who care to listen that the last words of Muma Gee, his once ally in the show, always ring in his ear and so, would do everything possible not to disappoint
