After 13yrs MTN stops sponsoring Who Wants to be a Millionaire, goes off air

Who Wants to be a Millionaire, popular TV game show, will be going on hiatus in Nigeria after telecommunications company MTN reportedly pulled out as a sponsor.

In a series of tweets, WWTBAM’s official Twitter page announced that the show is effectively off air.

“Goodbyes are tough, aren’t they? @frankedoho’s final words as #WWTBAM begins a hiatus today is filled with so much emotions,” the tweet read.

“Unfortunately, tonight’s episode is our last- for now. #WWTBAM is going on a temporal break.”

“Shout out to @frankedoho for holding things down like a boss for 13 years! To say his persona added spice to #WWTBAM is an understatement

“We thank you for being with us through the 13-year-journey of enriching and impacting the lives of Nigerians.

“We wouldn’t have been able to enrich so many Nigerians without the help of our sponsor @MTNNG So we say THANK YOU!”

Frank Edoho, the show’s host of 13 years, said MTN “pulled out” but didn’t elaborate further.

“Sadly, we are going on a break cos our sponsor pulled out. But we thank @MTNNG for being with us all these years. Please thank them for us,” he tweeted.

“You know the funny thing? I said I wasn’t going to say goodbye but at the end of the show, I said -Goodbye

“Sponsor no do again. Just an indefinite break.”

The show started airing in 2004 and has various segments including the children’s edition.
