There were reports that host of popular game show ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire’, Frank Edoho has been dropped as host of the show following disagreements with sponsors after it was announced the game show would be back on air with a new sponsor, Airopay.
An organiser of the show told Saturday Beats the split was amicable.
“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,” the source said.
Frank Edoho who had a 13-year stint with the show has also confirmed in his tweet;
