Who Wants To Be A Millionaire Host Frank Edoho Dropped As Show Returns
Popular TV personality and host of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, Frank Edoho has been dropped.
The popular game show Who Wants To Be A Millionaire (WWTBAM) stopped airing after former sponsors of the show MTN pulled out. However, the educational family game show is set to make a return this September after securing new sponsors Airopay.
The Sad news is that the popular game show host Frank Edoho will not return to the show again as host. Mr Edoho who anchored the show for 13 years running has been dropped as a new host would replace him.
According to sources, there is not fracas between the former show host and the new sponsors. The termination of contract was mutual and soon enough a new host will be unveiled.
“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. 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. 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.”
