After years of anchoring the “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” game show, Frank Edoho might be considering a change in career path.
The popular broadcaster and presenter has said that he is looking into working behind the scenes to support emerging talents.
He made the disclosure during a chat with Sunday Scoop, also revealing that he has a lot of things that he is working on at the moment.
Edoho said, “I’m a full broadcaster and everything I do revolves around entertainment. I don’t do anything else. However, I have a lot of new things that I’m working on at the moment. I like working behind the scenes and pushing my projects.
“I’m tired of being onscreen. I think it’s time to give opportunity to other people. I and my production company are churning out some radio programs and a TV show.”
When asked about what he has learned from hosting the popular game show, WWTBAM, he said, “The underlying theme for me is that knowledge is power. And for everything you want to do, you have to work for it. Even to win money on the show, people have to sit down and answer 15 questions.
“It has also taught me how to be a proper professional because I treat every episode in a different way and I prepare for it painstakingly. Preparation and hard work are the basis for success.”
Edoho attributed his success over the years to God, saying:
“I believe that God is the major factor that has kept me on as the presenter of the show.
Anybody can be removed at anytime, so I’m not flattered by the fact that I’ve been there for 13 years; it doesn’t mean that I’m the best broadcaster.”
Advising other broadcasters, he had this to say:
“There are different aspects of broadcasting; for TV, the person has to look good, exude confidence and speak wonderful English. And I don’t mean common English but one that would command the attention of people and ensure that they get your message.
“You also have to work hard and read a lot. It is helpful to watch other broadcasters that you admire and before long, their talents would rub off on you.”
Frank got married to Sandra Onyenucheya in 2014 and they share two kids together.
The pair got together after the crash of his first marriage to Katherine Edoho and mother of three of his kids.
