Sadly no, you cannot use an actual Gamecube controller with the Wii U, as it does not have the controller ports the original Wii has.
You can use an Injector to play Gamecube games with the Wii U Gamepad or if you have a classic controller for the Original Wii then you can use that for Gamecube games.
Someone has never listened about the Gamecube Controller Adapter for Wii U and Switch.

My Nintendont is built in 2018 December. Adapter and controller working as I tried on Nintendo switch.
Then I suggest you locate CrisMod's latest version of Nintendont, it's newer and has more options.

To your other point, it doesn't matter how well the adapter works on the Switch, if it's third party, it may be more finicky and problematic on the Wii U while still working great on Switch or PC. Then again, some third party ones work as well as the official version and don't yield any issues on the Wii U. It's kinda a free for all in regards to the matter. No guarantees when it comes to the third party adapters of this particular accessory.

Ok because I don't have a PC plus it wasn't me who done this mode . Wouldn't be easier to buy wireless MYFLASH and connect it with Wii remote? The Wii remote works fine , or there's is a chance I will also get issues? Sorry about this silly questions but I'm new to all this and I'm doing it for my 7yo son. He is bugging me about this GameCube controller. So I have to get done.

Gamecube adapter works only with smash bros. My recomendation is:
for Switch - GBros 8bitdo adapter + GC controller, works like charm
for wii U - GBros 8bitdo adapter + GC controller, Tiramisu and Bloopair

The USB GC adapter is as easy as it gets really, especially since it can work for up to 4 GameCube controllers out of the box, unless you have a problematic one. Mayflash controller adapter should work too, though you'll lose rumble functionality within the GameCube controller if that is the route you go. Otherwise, you could get a Wii U Pro controller, they work for GameCube games in Nintendont, with the added benefit of being wireless.

No, the GC adapter works for all GameCube games via Nintendont on the Wii U as well. Officially only Sm4sh supports it, but the homebrew scene ensured that Nintendont works brilliantly with it, with exception for hte GBA to GC cable link, that sadly does not work. Other things work though like the bongo controllers or the DDR mat.

@gaga24 suggestion is a hassle and to play Gamecube games via Nintendont, totally exagerated. The official Nintendo Gamecube Controller Adapter works with Nintendont fine, and a lot of thrid parties as well.
And it's known that most third party Pro Controllers don't work with Nintendont. You would have to experiment, since there's not a lot of info in which work.

I can't guarantee this will work with injects (probably will), but I use an adapter that plugs into the wiimote for the wireless wavebird. that does work with normal nintendont on the wii u, just never injected a gamecube game and tested it with that, though I don't foresee any problems.

for a pro controller, I don't believe so. I think the light goes off when you select nintendont, then you can resync it by pressing the A button or something. yeah, most pro controllers you find now are cheap knockoffs.
