But the duo of Obi and Ogunkoya-Omotayo could not get to the ultimate N10m mark. They, however, walked away with N1m after they were unable to answer the question that could have won them N2m.

The N1m Obi and Ogunkoya-Omotayo won was given to Haven for Nigerian Children, a Lagos, Nigeria-based Non Government Organisation, NGO.
