Why Frank Edoho was dropped as Who Wants To Be a Millionaire Host

13 years after the hit show Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, hit the Nigerian screens, it will return soon but Frank Edoho will no longer be the host.

Sources close to Ultima Studios stated that Frank had to go despite his good command of the programme because the new sponsors needed a fresh face and wanted to go in a different direction.

Our source revealed that though the official line is that the parting of ways was on mutual consent, it was not at all, as Frank was keen to return but the new sponsors,Airopay had other ideas.

“The only difference about the show is that the star prize money has reduced from N10m to N5m. 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,” another source told the Punch
