Back in June, we reported the popular quiz show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire Nigeria will no longer air again because its sponsor MTN Nigeria were pulling out, this gathered mixed reactions and emotional feelings on the internet as a lot of people reminisced about the show. There is good news now as the show will be making a return after getting a new sponsor, Airopay Limited.

Airopay Limited is an international payments operator based in Nigeria. Thanks to them Who Wants to Be a Millionaire Nigeria will return to the screens on the 3rd of September retaining its host, Frank Edoho. It promises more exciting scenes and whooping cash to be won.
Fans of the show have been teasing Frank on Twitter as to spending more time on the micro-blogging app bantering rival fans as he is a Chelsea fan.
😀 Banter wasn't as a result of unemployment but a barrage of insulting tweets at me by people who think disagreement in opinion means war. https://t.co/TitowjlIKz

From our end here, it’s good to see the show finally making a return and I for one hope to be on the show one day.
UPDATE: Frank will no longer host the show as he couldn’t reach an agreement with Ultima Studios. We wait to see who the new host is! Stay tuned.
