On console, he is the “Sports Supremo”, having garnered myriad of experiences in global sports stardom and broadcasting, spanning over 19 years.

Your first impression about him will reveal a yet different personality, owing to his social life and ambience in revolutionizing sports in Nigeria and Africa, but he is meek, radiant and a jolly good fellow.

He has brought the sporting image of Delta Broadcasting Service (DBS) Television and Radio in Asaba, the Delta state capital to limelight through his on the spot grip of major happenings in sports, especially football.

Sheddy, as he is commonly called by close friends, has radiated a lot of sporting life in his watchers on Television and listeners on Radio with glamorous applause from his audience whom he may have held captivated with his flare in sports analysis and up-to-date rummaging of general sports events.

His studio life is simple and apt as he prepares his scripts before hand and seeing him dash into the studio with less thought about usual preparation and rehearsals beats the imagination of media pundits.

His international and national repute in covering major sports events in the country has held him sway among his yearning contemporaries, especially at the FIFA U17 World Cup Championship in Abuja and Lagos held in 2009,  Nigerian Premier League, FA Cup and grass-root soccer championships.

He also had a short stay at the on-going National Sports Festival in Lagos, tagged “Eko 2012”.

He is a believer of grooming sports talents at their early stages of life, considering his personal football participation and background in the defunct Bendel Insurance in Benin where he was known as “The Black Cat.”

Although, Sheddy has a controversy in team support identity, owing to the fact that his wife is an Arsenal fan, his son a Manchester United fan and daughter a Chelsea fan, you can hardly unravel which particular team he throws his weight behind. Maybe because he loves all teams with the passion of a sports lover of all time.

It means well to meet the “Sports Supremo”, Shedrack Saxon Udu live on Console.
