Seasoned broadcaster and former host of ‘Who Wants To Be a Millionaire’, Frank Edoho and Radio Personality, Emmanuel Essien, popularly known as ‘Mannie’, have been unveiled as hosts for the oldest American TV game show, ‘The Price is Right’.
Being a freak for game shows, Frank Edoho expressed profound gratitude to Genesis Studios and SPAR for giving him the opportunity to host the show because, prior to the offer, he had been jobless as a result of completing his job as host of Who Wants To Be a Millionaire game show.
“I’m excited for this opportunity given to me by Genesis Studios and SPAR Nigeria to host ‘The Price is Right, particularly because I’m a freak for game shows and because, prior to this time, as you all know, I’ve been jobless. I look forward to having an exciting time as host for the oldest living TV game show”, he said
Genesis Studios, in partnership with SPAR, recently introduced the oldest and most successful American TV game show, ‘The Price is Right’, to the viewing pleasure of the Nigerian audience.
In a chat with Potpourri, MD/CEO of Genesis Studios, Mr Olatubosun Olaegbe expressed optimism that the 61-years old TV show would successfully serve as entertainment panache for the Nigerian audience.
“The Price is Right is a world class game show that would engage and entertain the entire family. It is the perfect format for us and we know it will be a massive success in Nigeria”, he said.
According to Mr. Prakash Keswani, the General Manager, SPAR Nigeria, SPAR is glad to have cemented the partnership deal which offers a one-stop shop for its several partners to leverage on and drive sales for their products through on air and on-ground consumer engagement.
