Who Wants to be A Millionaire? Aroma makes history, wins N10m


History has been made yesterday in the popular television programme, MTN’s Who Wants to be a Millionaire, when Ufodike Chimuanyan Egwuchukwu Aroma won the coveted N10million. The winner, who hails from Nnewi, in Anambra State, resides in Lagos.

The widely travelled graduate of Geography from University of Nigeria, Nsukka, also holds a master’s degree from University of Lagos (UNILAG). He did not use any lifeline until he got to the N5 million question (level 14 on the money tree). In the course of the show he demanded drinking water.

It was also gathered that the former banker, who is now into steel business, has an identical twin who lives in the United States of America.

Asked what his reading pattern was like, he said: “I read everything that comes my way, except novels and my television habit is poor, except for news, documentaries and sports. Generally, I don’t watch TV, but I visit the theatre.”

Obviously impressed and happy at the breaking of the jinx, fellow contestants and audience lifted him shoulder high right at the studio.

Due to popular demand, the edition would be repeated tomorrow. The popular programme anchored by Frank Edoho is in the sixth season.
