2022 marked Mr. Olympia debut wherein Samson Dauda came in 6th. It had taken years of effort for Dauda to reach that stage. Therefore, getting so close to the win in his first attempt was an achievement in itself. Further, earlier that year, Dauda had secured 4th place in the 2022 Arnold Classic. Now that he has gained more experience, Dauda is using it to get into the award-winning shape.

Recently, the 5’11” bodybuilder shared a glimpse of what he has worked on in the past months. Dauda shared a photo of himself striking the “most muscular” pose. The pose enabled him to flex all the intricate frontal details in front of the camera. Adding a caption to his post, the confident bodybuilder wrote, “Time to have some fun 🔥😏.”
