The first-ever episode in a brand new series of the award-winning and ace Nigerian game show based on the original British format — ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? Series 2: The Rebirth’ was unveiled on Sunday, March 20, 2022.
Shimmering in brand new set designs and decor initially specified in the United Kingdom, designed in South Africa and fully made in Nigeria with the help of South African technical partners, the signature of the rebirth show is a masterpiece to view and a work of art to reckon with.
According to the CEO of show producers, Blk Hut, a Boutique Consultancy and Agency firm that offers a range of services in Media Production and Entertainment Business in Nigeria, Hakeem Condotti, “There are three main types of sets for ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.
“The best one is used in the UK, the other in Israel and the middle east and the third, in South America and Africa. We were given the option of using any of them but decided to go for the same one as the UK.
“I’m excited about our new set as Three Nigerian companies came together to make sure the set was built to the required specifications — a testament to what can be produced here in Nigeria”.
