Frank Edoho, an ace broadcaster and filmmaker, has taken a swipe at a Twitter user for trying to give his name a “ridiculous” meaning.


On Thursday, Edoho took to the microblogging platform to laud Alex Ferguson, a former coach of Manchester United, on the occasion of his 79th birthday.

However, critics of the public figure took to the comment section to make a mockery of his name by switching its first letters.

In reaction, Edoho took a hit at one Ayoola Philips, saying his name showed he’s from a “lineage of cheap electronics”.


“You unsuccessfully try to twist my name into unfunny anecdotes when your surname depicts that you come from a lineage of cheap electronics,” the ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire’ show host retorted in his tweet.

As of the time of this report, the tweet has garnered nearly 7,000 likes with over 1,200 comments.


Frank Edoho hosted the WWTBAM game show for 13 years from 2004 before later resigning in September 2017.

He had announced his departure after failing to agree on terms with Ultima Studios. The TV host also denied being “dropped” by the organisers of the show, maintaining that he only declined the offer that was given to him.

In 2019, Edoho had joined forces with Teniola ‘Teni’ Apata, a songstress, to recreate the WWTBAM “hot seat” as one of the scenes for ‘Billionaire’, the video of a lead track from her debut EP of the same name.
