Nigerian actor and producer Bob-Manuel Udokwu said he is not totally out of this year’s Gulder Ultimate Search.
Bob-Manuel stated this after the organizers announced Toke Makinwa as the new face for the show.
The ‘Rattlesnake’ actor, however, confirmed to The Whistler that he’s still part of the show.
He said, “You mentioned that I’m always involved in Gulder Ultimate Search but not in this year’s show. Let set the record straight. GUS started in 2004. I became the anchor of the show in Season 4 in 2007 and anchored it for 5 out of a total of 10 years. (2004 – 2013), thus making me the longest anchorman of the show. The show is coming back this year after seven years break.”
Bob-Manuel confirmed he will be making ‘celebrity appearances’.
“The organizers decided to make some changes in the presentation of the show by introducing a Task Master along with the Anchor. I am playing non of the roles above but I will be making celebrity appearances in this year’s show as a mark of honour. So, I’m not totally out of Gulder Ultimate Search.” he added.
