Popular Television show, ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire’, is making a comeback after a four-year break.
Although no official date has been announced, the organisers have, however, disclosed that the contestants now stand a chance to win a fantastic grand prize of ₦20million every week, all year long.
The TV game show, which was based on the original British version, known as “Millionaire” and popularly called “WWTBAM” in the literature space, aired for over 13 years.
It ran from October 8, 2004 until June 25, 2017, before it went on an indefinite break after its major sponsor, MTN, pulled out.
In the 13 memorable years, the show enthralled TV audiences, boasted of formidable participants with a deep wealth of general knowledge.
Recall that Aroma Ufodike, from Nnewi, Anambra State, appeared on the show on September 11, 2009, and won the coveted N10 million.
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.
