Real reason Frank Edoho quit WWTBAM after 13-yrs



Real reason Frank Edoho quit WWTBAM after 13-yrs

It is no longer news that after a 13-year spell, Frank Edoho will cease to be the host of the TV show ‘Who Wants to be a Millionaire’ (WWTBAM) when the new season which will also have a new sponsor resumes.

What is new is the revelation by Frank that he will no longer be the host of the show after a protracted disagreement in negotiations with the organisers which unfortunately made him throw in the towel.

“Kindly allow me announce,that after a disagreement in negotiations with @Ultimalimited I have decided to decline hosting WWTBAM any further,” Frank posted on Twitter.

Meanwhile, organisers of the show which has a new sponsor Airopay after MTN withdrew as sponsors have revealed that the star prize money for the show winner has reduced from N10m to N5m.

“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,” the organisers said in a statement.
