Model for exposure, not money-Ex BBA star tells young talent

-Kayirebwa to perform in Rwanda



Rwanda’s ex-Big Brother Africa contestant Frank Rukundo aka Frankie Joe thinks aspiring models ought to be more driven by exposure than money if they really want to make it in the industry.

The model, actor and singer who recently appeared on Kigali’s KT Radio bemoans the fact that in Rwanda musicians have a hard time getting video vixens because “young pretty girls and handsome men with modeling talent ask for ridiculous amounts of money even if they have never appeared in a single video or beauty magazine”

Before joining Big Brother Africa, Frankie modeled for various fashion houses in Canada, and did spend some time in Hollywood auditioning for movie roles.
