Highly educating and entertaining TV game show, ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire (WWTBAM)‘, is set to return to Nigerian screens after a 4-year break.
The game show which uninterruptedly aired for 13-years between October 8, 2004, and June 25, 2017, was always anticipated by Nigerians. Its exciting weekly editions were always filled with deep wealth of knowledge.
In the WWTBAM game show, participants are usually asked questions and in return they get some amount of money as reward. Only one person named Aroma Ufoduke got all the questions and won the grand prize of N10 million in 2009.
However, this time around, the organizers raised the bar.
They revealed that in this year’s edition, participants can get up to N20 million weekly.
The game show will retain its many twists, which include the lifelines: ’50/50′, where the computer removes two random wrong options, leaving the right option and a wrong option.
‘Phone a Friend’, where the contestant gets 30 seconds to call someone to help answer a question and ‘Ask the Audience’, where audience members use touchpads to choose what they think the correct option is in order to assist the contestant.
Hakeem Condotti, CEO of BLK HUT media, the licensee and production house, indicated that the organizers aim to deliver creative, intelligent, and professional content that will show range and capacity
He also stated that the show is a form of Covid-19 relief.
“As a company, our desire is to continuously deliver creative, intelligent and professional content to the market for the people and partner brands; and in the production of a brand with WWTBAM stature, we are able to show our range and capacity to this effect,” he said.
“We are proud to be bringing international quality content right to our screens again in Nigeria, be it on TV, Digital, Cable, or Mobile. As part of the much-needed Covid relief that we all need as a nation, WWTBAM is back to entertain, educate and once again, have viewers on the edge of their seats and creating millionaires every week!”, he said.
