As the management of Ultima Limited plans to rebuild the burnt studio where Who Wants To Be A Millionaire and MTN Project Fame programmes are being recorded, P.M NEWS can reveal that the housemates of the Project Fame have moved into a temporary Academy.
P.M.NEWS learned that the new academy is located inside a studio in Bamako Close Omole, Lagos, Nigeria and the housemates have since resumed training.
Femi Ayeni, the CEO of Ultima Limited, told P.M NEWS yesterday that the live recordings of the programme Who Wants To Be A Millionaire will be on hold for about three months to allow the management construct a standard studio. He added that during this period, some selected editions will be re-shown to viewers.
Ayeni said that as for Project Fame the show continues because of the involvement of contestants from other countries.
Investigations revealed that the Elegant Stallion, Ms Onyeka Onwenu, will be at the Academy this weekend to teach the housemates the rudiments of music among other things.
According to the Corporate Affairs Manager of the company, Mr. Olumide Akinlabi, the studios, will be rebuilt as soon as the insurance company, Sovereign Trust, completes their evaluation.
P.M.NEWS gathered that the fire that razed the multi-billion naira studios last SundayÂ started somewhere from the academy before spreading to the studios and the offices.
