    Nollywood legend  Richard Mofe Damijo who is currently the  Delta State Commissioner for Culture and Tourism, recently applauded the efforts of Kevin Durst and Fejiro Ejogbamu, two Champions that emerged from the recently concluded Gulder Ultimate Search 8. 

    He made the remarks when Messrs Durst and Ejogbamu, accompanied by other GUS 8 Champions, paid a courtesy visit to the Delta State government house.  
The other GUS 8 Champions are: Christopher Okagbue, the winner, Anastasia Azike, the last female contestant standing, Anthony Igwe, Tony Horsfall, Promise Ojiegbe, Sunday Gyang, Olanrewaju Alawoki and Patience Ihongbe.

    RMD said: “This is just a stepping stone towards more successes in life. The good thing about when you are able to compete in something that involves other people and you are selected, is that it imposes more work on you, so to speak; to strive even harder to become something more in life. This is supposed to inspire them into achieving greater heights in whatever they choose to become thereafter.”

   The Honourable Commissioner added that Delta State was synonymous with winning in competitions, hence the sterling performances by Durst and Ejogbamu.
Speaking on how he felt by their performances, he said: “I’m used to winning now because this is not the first time that two Deltans will be involved in Gulder Ultimate Search. It was said that there was a particular year where the first and second positions were from Delta. Winning is like part of our DNA in Delta State. I feel great. It just reminds us that we’re a very competitive state and there’s no reason why anybody from this part of the state should not wake up in the morning and feel proud and want to be the best he can be.

                          

    The 10 Champions from Gulder Ultimate Search 8 are currently on a tour which will take them to the states of origin of the contestants.
