Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?[/caption4After four years of being off the viewers’ screen, the highly acclaimed TV game show Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? (WWTBAM), has returned with contestants now standing a chance to battle for the grand prize of N20 million every week.

The game show, which aired for over 13 years from October 8, 2004, until June 25, 2017, before its suspension, is now bankrolled by BLK HUT Media, is returning with fresh elements of suspense and humour.

In the years of gracing the 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 in the person of Aroma Ufodike, who became the first winner of the coveted top prize.

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 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.

Speaking about the show, CEO, BLK HUT Media, Hakeem Condotti, said the firm is proud to bring back the show.

“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.”
