Frank Edoho reveals the real reason he quit as host

Frank Edoho, who hosted Who Wants to be Millionaire for 13 years, has revealed the real reason why he won't return as host.

During an interview with Punch News Saturday Beats, a representative from the organizers of the TV show had revealed that Edoho will not continue as host when the show returns for a new season.

"We are not him because we had any issue with him. I think he feels it is time to go and find other endeavours,"  the representative said.

Edoho took to Twitter to share the real reason why he will not continue as the host, after 13 years.

According to him, he declined the offer after a disagreement in negotiations with the producers, Ultima Studio.

He further stated that he would no longer be silent about lies concerning him.

His exit has led to reactions from viewers and fans, who have followed the entertaining and educating show for years.

When asked what is next for him, the popular host hinted TV, radio and talk show.

After a two-month break, 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire," will return this weekend with new sponsors on board.

The show went on a temporary break after MTN Nigeria withdrew their sponsorship.

Produced by Ultima Limited, MTN took over sponsorship of the TV show in 2006, making it bigger by doubling the prize money from five million naira to 10 million naira.

For the new season, the new star prize money has been reduced from 10 million naira to five million naira.

The first episode of 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire' aired on October 8, 2004.

The show returns for a new season on September 3, 2017, with a new host.
