Bisola Aiyeola Becomes The Host Of TV Game Show, Family Feud
The program, which is scheduled to premiere on October 7 across the nation, promises to be a hilarious and welcoming entertainment because it features a wide variety of Nigerian families competing for cash and other prizes.
In each episode, two “families” of five will compete against one another to predict the most common answers to a set of survey questions with a distinctively Nigerian twist that were asked of 100 participants.
Aisha Umar-Mumuni, the Ag. Chief Digital Officer, MTN Nigeria, said during the unveiling on Wednesday at the company’s head office in Lagos that “One of the things that keep families together is shared activity, and whether it’s competing on ‘Family Feud’ or watching weekly episodes, the show will give people another avenue to bond.”
“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,” commented Femi Ayeni, Chief Executive Officer, Ultima Studios.
“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,” Ayeni added.
Former Big Brother Naija housemate Bisola Aiyeola expressed her delight as the show host, saying, “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.”
Subscribers may get ready for Family Feud Nigeria now and enter to win money daily in a humorous trivia competition before the show’s October premiere.
From August 24, MTN subscribers can participate by texting DFF or WFF to 205 with their responses to the Family Feud survey questions for a chance to win money every workday, from Monday through Friday.
Each month, N10,000 will be given to the top 200 subscribers with the most points.

In 2023, the program will also be available on a number of terrestrial TV networks, with the NTA Network taking the lead.
