After 13 years of anchoring the show, TV personality, Frank Edoho has announced uring the week, it was announced that popular family game show, Who Wants To Be A Million would be back on air with a new sponsor, Airopay.
“Kindly allow me announce,that after a disagreement in negotiations with Ultima Studios I have decided to decline hosting WWTBAM any further. It’s been a wonderful 13 years and I have to thank all the viewers for making the show a runaway success. I would like to thank all my followers on Twitter for expressing concern when the show stopped and for the prayers for it to return. To the crew and staff of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire who have become my family, I will miss you but you still have a job ahead of you.Good luck. I love you guys. I implore all the fans of the show to support whoever the new host will be. Let’s make he or she the next big thing on TV.”
An organiser of the show told PUNCH that an amicable agreement was reached between both parties.
“The only difference about the show is that the star prize money has reduced from N10m to N5m. We are not dropping him because we had any issue with him. I think he feels it is time to go and find other endeavours.
“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.”
