The globally acclaimed game show ‘Family Feud’ will be shown nationwide from October 7, courtesy of leading technology company and title sponsor, MTN Nigeria, in partnership with Ultima Studios, Nigeria’s premier production company. MTN’s support for the show was announced Wednesday at an event at Ikoyi’s headquarters, where popular actress, Bisola Aiyeola, was named as the show’s host.
The show promises hilarious and inclusive entertainment as it shows a wide range of Nigerian families competing for money and other prizes. Each show features two ‘families’ of five competing as they try to guess the most popular answers to a series of survey questions, with a uniquely Nigerian twist, posed to 100 people.
During the event, Ag. Chief Digital Officer, MTN Nigeria, Aisha Umar-Mumuni, said: “One of the things that keeps families together is shared activity, and whether it’s ‘Family Feud’ or watching weekly episodes, the show gives people another opportunity to band. It will be informative, comical and show the personalities of different families from generation to generation. It will be exciting to watch.”
“Family Feud is a relaxing game show with a healthy dose of humor and laughter that is sure to refresh and reconnect families and friends, while also rewarding them for playing and winning cash and other prizes,” said Femi Ayeni, Chief Executive Officer , Ultima studios.
“The show gets even more interesting because the five contestants in each family can be nuclear family members, friends from work, neighbors, old boys or old girls from schools, and almost any relationship that binds us together in a community. The families can play to win up to N5 million and make sure every family member becomes a millionaire thanks to our main sponsors – MTN,” added Ayeni.
A highlight of the event was the announcement of Bisola Aiyeola as the host of the show. She expressed her excitement by saying, “I am thrilled to host ‘Family Feud’. It’s a show I’ve come to love, and I’m looking forward to sharing the experience with families across Nigeria. The questions are hilarious and when you combine that with our unique Nigerian humor you expect non-stop laughter It’s more than just asking questions Part of the fun is revealing their unique personalities to further engage with the families.”
