Who wants to Be a Millionaire is back but drops Frank Edoho for new host
By Patricia Uyeh
In July, it was reported that Who Wants To Be A Millionaire would be going off air due to lack of sponsorship.
However, this week, it was announced that the popular family game show is returning with a new sponsor and is dropping it’s host, Frank Edoho for a new host.
According to reports: “The only difference about the show is that the star prize money has reduced from N10m to N5m. Also, it is very likely that we are not going to use Frank Edoho as our anchor. We are not dropping him because we had any issue with him.
“For now, our viewers would only be able to play on the MTN platform till we are able to sort out ways whereby they can play from any network provider and that would be resolved very soon. We are under no obligation to play on the MTN platform alone. Airopay is thrilled to partner with Ultima Limited, whose passion and dedication to quality and world class productions are well known, by sponsoring the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire Nigeria game show. Airopay is honoured by this partnership. Airopay and Ultima are convinced that the synergy between Airopay and Who Wants To Be A Millionaire game show will be mutually beneficial.”
