Frank Edoho, who is a longtime broadcaster, impeccable TV host, adept filmmaker, flawless photographer and now, host of the popular Nigerian TV show, ‘Who wants to be a Millionaire?’ for the second time in a row, is a seasoned voice-over artist, producer, Cinematographer, Media Consultant and a film Colorist who has voiced TV ads and radio jingles for various companies including Vogue Fruit Juice, First City Monument Bank, Unilever Nigeria Plc, International Bank Plc, Elizade Toyota, among others.
The seasoned, charismatic and inimitable broadcaster was brought into the limelight in 2004 by the same popular TV game show, ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?’, where contestants are invited to the ‘hot seat’ and tested in general knowledge with a view of winning ₦10 million Naira and other prizes at the time.
The first-ever series of this captivating television show which Frank hosted for 13 years until it was rested in 2017, revealed a contestant named Aroma Ufodike, as the first person to win the ₦10 million prize money on September 11, 2009 and remains the only winner of the top prize of this game show.
‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire’ Series 2 — The Rebirth whose production is under license from Sony Pictures Television, with new staggering prize money of N20,000,000, is set to revolutionize the history of television production in Nigeria, Africa and the world.
Apart from the usual three lifelines — ‘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 five prearranged 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 the audience members use touchpads to designate what they believe the correct option to be. The percentage of the audience choosing each specific option is then displayed to the contestant — a new lifeline has now been added for this Series 2, which is ‘Ask The Host’. This lifeline gives the contestants one chance to ask the host for the answer to the question asked.
With the latest innovations added to the rebirth of the addictive television game show, Frank is poised to soar to new heights in a never-before-seen pattern as he returns to familiar territory with the standout show that made him a maestro in television presenting.
