Bodybuilder and serial Ghana’s Strongest winner Damian Smith, popularly known as Shaka Zulu, has emerged as the Champion of Champions.
Shaka Zulu has won Ghana’s Strongest ‘Champion of Champions’ edition after beating defending champion Ahmed Boakye, Prosper Dakora, and Bright Appiah in the final held at the Eli Beach Resort in Keta, Volta Region, on Sunday, July 4.
Sunday’s victory makes him the most successful athlete in the history of the competition.
It is his third title, having won in 2017 and 2018 before a three-year break as a result of his relocation to the United States.
Damian came back home for this 10th season of TV3‘s popular competition after his request for a long-term break was granted by his employer in America.
Although the final events were unsurprisingly grueling, Shaka Zulu came out tops.
He dominated key events such as Truck Head Pull (weight 46,000kg), Giant Tyre Flip and Keg Toss to be adjudged the winner
Ahmed Boakye, who came into the final as reigning champion, placed third while Prosper Dakora and Bright Appiah, aka SWAT, were second and fourth respectively.
Shaka Zulu took home a whopping GHS10,000, a brand new car, and will be in South Africa to participate in the prestigious Arnold Classics Africa.
