‘I was never fired from WWTBAM’ — Frank Edoho dismisses rumour

by Admin

Frank Edoho, the Nigerian TV presenter, has addressed claims that he was sacked from ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire (WWTBAM),’ the highly acclaimed game show.

Edoho hosted WWTBAM from its inception on October 8, 2004, until September 2, 2017.

He left the show following a breakdown in a contract negotiation that would have seen him rise to the position of executive producer of the show.

But last year, organisers of the game show announced that Edoho would rehash his role as the anchor of the rebooted programme.

Before he was recalled to anchor the show, there were, however, rumours that he was sacked for undisclosed reasons.

In a recent interview on the Bants and Boujee podcast, Edoho said he needed to clarify the misconception after a troll attempted to use it to taunt him.

The TV presenter said he was never sacked, adding that the claims were untrue.


“Nobody has ever fired me in my career, and the employer that makes a mistake to leave me, they have always regretted,” he said.

Edoho earlier revealed how a Twitter poll prompted the organisers to make a U-turn back to him after 76 auditions for new people.

“When ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire’ came back, they did 76 auditions for new people. After the 76th audition, it just so happened that one day, one guy on Twitter just did a poll on ‘who is the king of suspense on TV?’ and he listed four of us,” he had said.

“And everyone replied that Frank is the undisputed king of suspense. I didn’t do anything but I just saw my name trending.


“It was at that point they did the 76th audition and they saw that thing trending. Then, they left the 76 people and started calling me
