Pop crew Dream Boyz have acknowledged that Riderman won Primus Guma Guma Super Star deservedly. The group scooped the fourth place at Amahoro stadium, with Knowless and Urban Boyz ending up as second and first runners-up respectively, and they believe the judgment was fair and square.
“To be honest if Riderman hadn’t won it I would have been surprised,” said Platini, a crew member. “If you look at the way he performed in all the road shows and how the crowd always responded to him, you will accept that he’s a real super star” he added. Riderman, a favorite among the youth caught the attention of not so few, including veteran musician Samputu who reckoned that the rapper has a “secret” that makes him so popular.
Apart from Dream Boyz who conceded defeat, Kamichi also once said that Riderman was a popular figure among the young and old alike. There have been several criticisms aimed at the reality TV show with many alleging bribery claims, which the organizers have strongly denied.
