Frank Edoho will no longer host Who Wants To Be A Millionaire
Few days ago, we told you that Nigeria’s longest-standing TV game show, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire will be airing again after it was discontinued two months ago when MTN pulled out as sponsor.
“Would Frank Edoho return as host?” was the big question then.
Well, we got the answer now. Frank Edoho is done with the show.
He made this known via Twitter on Saturday while also clarifying other reports that claimed he was “dropped” by the organisers.
#BBNaija’s Marvis releases new video

The visuals to her Chris String-produced single ‘Vibe’ was shot in Lagos by Avalon Okpe and features appearances by fellow BBNaija finalist, Bisola and winner, Efe.
Meanwhile, is Wizkid a joke?
We were all on our own minding our business when Starboy, Wizkid came to tell us he would drop his collaborative track with Future at 1pm last Tuesday.
On the day that followed, he claimed that he slept past 1pm and couldn’t drop the song as planned. He told a fan he’d do the “drop” on Thursday.

It’s been five days since then and nothing has dropped. Not even a leak!
Wizkid is not tweeting or speaking about it anymore and we’re inclined to believe he has now resorted to taking his fans for a ride.
It’s not funny!
Are you “Ready for It”?
It won’t matter now because Taylor Swift has followed up with another single from her coming album “Reputation”.
‘Ready for It’ was first teased on Saturday night at the pre-show of a college football game between Alabama and Florida states, E! News reports.

Fans have raised concerns about the track sampling a popular Kanye West track and also making references to him signaling Taylor’s relentlessness in her beef with the rapper.
‘Ready for It’ has been released on iTunes and Spotify and we’ll wait to see if it surpasses ‘Look What You Made Me Do’ in numbers.
