Despite early eviction from Gulder Ultimate Search, I’m proud of myself– Iniabasi

Iniabasi Umoren, a recently evicted contestant in the ongoing Gulder Ultimate Search, Season 12, has said that though he left the show at an early stage, he is proud of his performance on the show.

He told The PUNCH, “Now that I am out of the jungle, I want to focus on pushing my music career to the next level. I am an artiste, and I have been a music producer for over 10 years. I have released two singles so far and I featured DJ Cuppy on one of them. I also want to go into full-time content creation and acting, while collaborating with brands. To be honest, I felt a different rush of emotions when I got evicted.

“I was sad but was later relieved and proud of myself after having a deep reflection and realising that I did well on the show. Concerning the rope-a-dope task and why I didn’t write anything down when Toke Makinwa (the host) asked us to state what was missing in the task we did, I am not one to just write down anything when I do not know the answer to a question.

“I would rather own up to not knowing and ask questions. I learn every day and that is how I get wiser. It was just unfortunate that it did not work out in my favour this time. I was convinced that I would win the show if I wasn’t evicted. But as fate would have it, it didn’t work out that way.”

Iniabasi also urged organisers of the show to air it every day, instead of just Saturdays and Sundays. He said, “Airing the show on television on Saturdays and Sundays is not bad, but I feel the competition also needs more airtime, especially for the viewers. That would help them connect more with the contestants.”
