Gabriel Omoya, one of the two evicted participants from Gulder Ultimate Search Season 12 ‘The Age of Craftmanship,’ says the competition has given him a big platform that would have cost him millions of Naira otherwise.
Omoya told Saturday Beats, “Before coming for the competition, I never envisaged myself having multiple (media) interviews. I am grateful to GUS for the opportunity it has provided to bring me out to the world and I am going to take that chance seriously, especially for my music career. I actually expected to be the Ultimate Man (winner of the competition). It is just sad that I was the first person to be evicted.
However, I consider myself a winner for making it to the jungle. I thank the organisers and sponsors of the show for giving me this platform to try something new, and for making me experience another side of life. The jungle is not for kids and I signed up for it. I had quite a memorable experience, eating food without salt and sleeping on a mat in a jungle.”
Speaking about what led to his eviction, the singer said, “It all started when my clan lost the task. I was evicted because I was unable to finish the task given to my clan by the anchor, and I felt so bad. There is always a reason for one’s inability to accomplish a task, so I was evicted because I was not careful enough. It is painful because a little mistake led to my eviction. My lost shoe also affected me badly. It was a strategy to slow me down and it eventually did.
“As an artiste and entertainer who creates comedy content, I have a passion for music, and Gulder Ultimate Search has given me a platform that would have cost me millions of Naira. It will really help my music career. I will also like to work with some Instagram content creators such as Sydney Talker, Ogbeni Adan, Crazy Clown, Mr Sabinus, MC Lively, Mr Macaroni and Taaooma. I would also love to work with Davido, Dapo Tuburna, Tunde Ednut, Olamide, Don Jazzy and Dbanj.”
