January 31, 2015 2:14 am

All
good things come to an end and so it was with the first season of Game
On, the Malta Guinness-powered reality series to find Naijas’ true
passion.

The thrilling show kicked off with an opening round of jokes and banter
by humour merchants, Owen Gee and Lepacious Bose who after getting the
audience in stitches handed over to another king of comedy Gordons, the
official; host of the night.

Lanre
and Amokachi for the final time had the opportunity to defend their passions in
one minute before a recap of memories of the contestants in the house and on
tasks.
Without
much ado the run way was lit and came to life with the fashion team putting
their best foot forward to present an amazing show on this grand finale, the
football team wouldn’t be left behind as they blew the audience away with a
football inspired dance piece so good musician Waje couldn’t but score them a 8
over ten when asked what she thought of their performance. Noble Igwe rooting
for the fashion team believed they scored 9/10. Mind-blowing performances by
delectable R&B songstress, Niyola and Alobam crooner, Phyno got the entire
audience rising to their feet, singing and dancing along and breaking into
applause for the rapper when he was done.
The
moment of truth came and Naijas true passion was finally unveiled as Olumide
Ajibolade was declared final winner over Henrietta with Team Football winning
52% of the votes to Team Fashion’s 48% in the outcome of voting by Nigerians on
Facebook and by SMSes across the nation.
Shocked
Olumide broke into prayers as he beamed with joy and called his family to break
the in 6 words “tell them say I don win”, the crowd erupted into laughter
and applause. 
Uche
Onwudiwe, the Marketing Manager of Malta Guinness said “we are glad to have
been the umpires in finding Naijas true passion. People have always assumed it
was football and really the fashion industry is an exciting one plus they gave
a good fight on this one but football came out tops with a narrow margin.
However, whichever passion it was, the Malta Guinness brand purpose is all
about helping the everyday Nigerians get ready for that big break that is all
around us either by nourishing them with goodness and vitality or helping them
with rare opportunities like this one”.
Reacting
to his win of the grand prize which is a trip to England for a series of
trainings and coaching classes and a sum of two million Naira cash, Olumide
said they say Malta Guinness fuels the passion of Naija, I am a testimony! Our
lifes are changed forever and I am deeply grateful to Malta Guinness, my team
captain Daniel Amokachi, our rival captain Mrs Lanre Da Silva, all other
contestants and the almighty God.
Celebrating
the win on this grand night with the contestants were a list of celebrities
that includes football legend, Taribo West; Rapper Phyno, songstress and
vocalist, Waje and Omawumi; media personalities Joseph Benjamin, Adams Ibrahim
and Noble Igwe , DJ Xclusive, amongst others.
By
the win, Nigerians have shown that football is the superior passion in the
country and Malta Guinness has helped to fuel the passion of Coach Olumide
Ajibolade.
