Frankie From Rwanda

Frankie, Age: 33

Frankie is a singer, model and actor with a degree in Financial Management. His favourite food is ugali with beef stew and his favourite book is Nelson Mandela’s Long Walk To Freedom.

Frankie enjoys the music of Joe Thomas, Luther Vandross and Morgan Heritage and he says he loves "epic movies and romantic comedies". His favourite actors are Djimon Hounsou, Jamie Foxx, Denzel Washington, Cameron Diaz and Lupita Nyong'o.

He values Africa's uniqueness and authenticity and lists his favourite place as Kigali – his place of birth. Outside of the continent, he says that Canada is his favourite destination because of all the opportunities there, but also because his son Taye was born there.

Frankie considers his parents to be his role models, because "they have gone through lots of tribulations, but love and kindness always blossomed" he says. His proudest achievements are graduating from university and when his son was born.

Frankie says that viewers can expect "great times full of enthusiasm and adventure" from him and that if he wins, he'll contribute towards building a school in his grandmother's village and buy a house for him parents, to thank them for everything they did for him.

Frankie gets along with both sexes and sees no point in lying about his age. He says being one of the first Rwandans to be on the show is "tremendously incredible."
