Widely-celebrated and highly-acclaimed TV game show Who Wants To Be A Millionaire has returned with N20 Million Grand Prize.
‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire‘ is a Nigerian game show based on the original British version, known casually as “Millionaire’ and popularly called ‘WWTBAM’ in the literature space, aired for over 13 years from October 8, 2004, until September 2017 when it was temporarily put on hold.
The new ‘WWTBAM’ series tagged ‘The Rebirth’ will be hosted by Popular show host and broadcaster, Frank Edoho.
Recall that Edoho had hosted the show from its inception on October 8, 2004, until September 2, 2017.
In the thirteen memorable years of gracing our screens, the show which enthralled TV audiences far and wide with its exciting and educating editions, boasted of formidable participants, a deep wealth of knowledge and one worthy winner of the staggering prize money of N10 million.
Aroma Ufodike became the first winner of the much-coveted top prize of this stupendous game show.
The millionaire game show, which has an intricate set of rules, hosts a group of contestants in each episode in a preliminary round called ‘Fastest Finger First’ where all contenders for the whooping prize money are given a question and four answers by the host, which must then be placed within a particular order.
The contestant who answers correctly in the fastest time goes on to play the main game.
Once a contestant enters the main game, they are asked increasingly difficult general knowledge questions by the host, with each question featuring four possible answers, to which the contestant must give the correct answer.
Doing this wins the contestant certain amounts of money as they advance in the game, hence increasing their prize fund.
How To Apply For Popular TV Show, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire
During the game, the player has a set of lifelines that they may use only once to help them with a question, as well as two “safety nets”.
These lifelines are: ’50/50′, where the computer eliminates two random wrong options, leaving the right option and the other remaining wrong option; ‘Phone a Friend’, where the contestant has 30 seconds to call one of their friends, read the question and four possible options to the friend, who then has the remaining time to offer input; and ‘Ask the Audience’, where audience members use touchpads to designate what they believe the correct option to be and the percentage of the audience choosing each specific option is displayed to the contestant.
Past winners of the show include Osazuwa Osahon Daniels, who went home with N5m in 2009; Aroma Chimuanya, who got N10m in 2009; Babatunde Oladipo, who walked away with N5m in 2010; and Nnaemeka Ubaekwena, who left the show N5m richer in 2012.
The show is sponsored by UP, a payments and financial technology company, in collaboration with BLK Hut Media, producers of the Nigerian version of the show, under the license of Sony Pictures.
The Managing Director of UP, Agada Apochi, stated that the show would create lasting memories for viewers.
He said, “We are sponsoring the show to entertain, educate and excite Nigerians. The return of WWTBAM is coming with a bang that would create lasting memories in the minds of audiences.
“It is going to keep them on the edge of their seats as new millionaires emerge from the show.”
The Chief Executive Officer of BLK HUT Media, Hakeem Condotti, also emphasised that the show would keep viewers glued to the edges of their seats.
He said, “We are proud to bring international quality content right to our screens again in Nigeria.
“As part of the much-needed relief from COVID-19 that we all need as a nation, ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Series 2 – The Rebirth’ is here to entertain, educate and have viewers on the edge of their seats.”
Ready to shake the world with My “Afro Electro Vibe”-Says Shon Joel Nerat
The Nigerian music is currently getting a global attention and there are several new talented acts that are joining the fray daily. One of such new talents is Shon Joel Nerat with the stage name Shon.
Shon is a talented singer, songwriter, trapper and rapper. He was born in Kano State, Nigeria but currently reside in his hometown Jos, the capital of Plateau State. He grew up with his grandmother who always complained that he disturbs the entire neighborhood with his music (she calls it noise).
He was born on 22nd August 2003 and started writing songs at age 11. He recorded his first song titled “MY LORD” sometimes in 2017 with his best friend Jace Kim (his first producer).
Growing up, Shon was inspired by genres like Trap, Rap, R&B with a little spice of Afrobeat and he is musically inspired by artistes like Khalid, 6lack, Alpha P and Rema. He doesn’t have a particular genre which his music Is classified under, but he describes his sound as an “Afro Electro Vibe”.
“I always love to standout from the crowd with my music, hence my playing and experimenting with various sounds to create something unique for my fans and all good music lovers”, stated Shon.
Currently an undergraduate student at the Plateau State Polytechnic, Shon is here to feed FANTASIES that’s why he is called the FANTASIZER.

Homewin, a product of Sujimoto, signs Portable as ambassador
Sujimoto Group, owned by Sijibomi Ogundele, which has made its mark in many sectors of the economy, especially in the real estate segment, where it is the leader in the country, is also making inroad into the betting sector with its brand, Homewin.
Come May 1, 2022 the lawyer turned entrepreneur will be launching Homewin, a product of Sujimoto which is also a special betting platform that will set another standard for betting business in Nigeria.
To restate his serious he has just signed on an ambassadorial deal with the hip hop rave of the moment, Portable.
It was gathered that some of the existing operators in this business are reportedly becoming jittery knowing full well that the brilliant man does not do his own things in half measures.
Many had to go back to the drawing board for the obvious reason that whatever he touches turns into gold.
Ogundele’s vast wealth of experience as a venture capitalist and investment strategist has provided a solid background in ensuring his housing business achieve its mission in the establishment of classy housing units in Nigeria that can compete globally.
He has also set up Sujimoto bottled water company and a lottery business.
There is no doubt that he has the pedigree for doing well in many spheres of life and Ogundele has proved this on many occasions.
Without a doubt, Ogundele is gradually leaving his footprint in the sands of time as his businesses are definitely gaining prominence across Nigeria and the continent of Africa.
The road to success is not the path you find but a trail you blaze- says Robert Brault.
For those who have been wondering about his meteoric rise in life, one of the things working for him is that he always sees opportunities, where others are bogged down by morbid fear of failure.
Since the businessman dude established his business some years ago, he has continued to unveil what he has in the stock. But if you think you has seen it all you better have another think coming as he has lots up his sleeves.
While many business magnates will inundate you with some bitter-sweet tales considering the inclement business climate under which many entrepreneurs around the world operate lately, Ogundele is busy spreading his tentacles and expanding his coast.
Unlike some others who see investing during a crisis as a gamble of sorts, Ogundele, who loves to lead by example, knows how taking a bold risk can be rewarding.
