The popular Nollywood actress, Bisola Aiyeola, was unveiled by Mtn as the host of its highly rated TV game show, ‘Family Feud’ on Wednesday at the company’s head office, in Lagos.

According to the Ag. Chief Digital Officer, MTN Nigeria, Aisha Umar-Mumuni, “One of the things that keep families together is shared activity, and whether it is competing on ‘Family Feud’ or watching weekly episodes, the show will give people another avenue to bond.

The show is set to hit the screen on the 7th of October, promising to be thrilling, keeping its viewers glued, showcasing a diverse range of Nigerian families in a battle to win cash and other prizes.

Two ‘families’ of five will be featured on the show, going head-to-head as they try to guess the most popular responses to a series of survey questions, with a uniquely Nigerian twist, posed to 100 people.

Sharing her heartfelt gratitude, Bisola Aiyeola stated that, “I am thrilled to be hosting ‘Family Feud.’ It’s a show I have come to love, and I look forward to sharing the experience with families across Nigeria.

“The questions are hilarious and when you mix that with our unique Nigerian humour, 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.”

Also speaking at the event, Femi Ayeni, Chief Executive Officer, Ultima Studios, added that, “It will be informative, provide comic relief and showcase the personalities of different families across generations. It will be exciting to watch.

“Family Feud is a relaxing game show with a healthy dose of humour and laughter, which is sure to refresh and reconnect families and friends while also rewarding them as they play and win cash, and other prizes”

“The show is made even more interesting because the five participants in each family can be made up of nuclear family members, friends from work, neighbours, old boys or old girls of schools and almost any relationship which binds us together in a community.

“The families will be able to play to win up to N5 million and ensure that every family member becomes a millionaire courtesy of our lead sponsors – MTN.”
