GUS premiered in 2004 and ran for 11 seasons, thanks to the support of Nigerian Breweries Plc, the makers of Gulder lager beer.

The planning team has put in place everything necessary to give the fans exactly what they enjoy about the show, and I am confident that everyone will be pleasantly surprised and delighted with what we have in store.”
Registration will begin on September 1 and end on September 8, 2021, according to Morgan.
The first screening session will take place on September 13 in Abuja and Enugu, and the second will take place on September 16 in Lagos.
