HalTV to stream new game show in Nigeria

HalTV, an Islamic-themed lifestyle channel in Nigeria is working on a new game show for Ramadan called Hajj Quest. 

“It is a one-of-its-kind show, as there’s not a lot of content people consume that is spiritual but also entertaining. People want to go on hajj after Ramadan, so every night after finishing fasting they can watch someone play to win for hajj,” announced Sheriff Bakare, Founder and CEO of HalTV Africa.

The concept of the game show comes from “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?”, but instead of the general knowledge questions of the British show that went global in the late 1990s and early 2000s, participants have to answer Islam-themed questions. “There are questions related to Ramadan and general Islamic knowledge,” said Bakare.

The show will be in English but simultaneous translation will be offered for participants who speak Nigerian languages and dialects.
