OMO PICK A BOX IS BACK
The popular Sunday night TV game show Omo Pick A Box is back. Omo is set to revive the 1990s game show concept. The stakes will, however, be much higher and lucky winners can look forward to walking away with cash and other prizes including 10 cars up for grabs. The cars to be won in the show are Three Nissan X-Trail, Four Toyota NZE and Three Toyota.
Christine Mwaura, Unilever category manager, Fabric Cleaning, East and Southern Africa, says the show will offer the excitement that made Omo Pick A Box very popular.
“Although it has been a couple of years since we last aired the Omo Ng’arisha Maisha game show, we feel the new and updated game show will bring excitement and change game shows in Kenya; this will differentiate Omo in the market place,” said Mwaura.
Omo Pick A Box was the longest running TV series in Kenya and had the whole nation anticipating what the contestants would choose between the money offered or the box.
Mwaura said the firm will be announcing the game show host early next week. She said the show is scheduled not to clash with the upcoming World Cup tournament.
“We have timed the show in a way that ensures that our viewers do not have to pick between the World cup or the Omo Ng’arisha Maisha game show,” she said.
