Frankie Just GymIt has been forced to come clean on a few things after allegations were made about his role as a father.
Maureen Waititu, who is the mother of his two sons, had mentioned in an exclusive with Kiss100 that she is a single mother who takes care of their children all by herself.
Unfortunately this was misinterpreted to mean that Frankie is a dead beat father.
He had a QnA segment on Instagram and his followers and a few social media in-laws had a lot of questions when it comes to his role as a father.
Responding via his YouTube channel. Frankie said,
EACH WEEK I SEND MONEY FOR MY CHILDREN’S UPKEEP. I SEND SH6,000 AND PERSONALLY I SPEND LIKE SH2,500. I PAY SH150,000 FOR MY SON’S SCHOOL FEES PER SEMESTER AT MONTESSORI. MY MUM HELPS ME WITH A PERCENTAGE OF THAT.
MY CHILDREN HAVE ALWAYS HAD TWO NANNIES UNTIL RECENTLY AND I WAS PAYING BOTH OF THEM. MY BABY MAMA AND I HAD AN AGREEMENT ON HOW WE GOING TO BE SPLITTING NANNIES SALARY, I PAY A SPECIFIC AMOUNT, AND THEN SHE TOPS UP AND THAT’S WHAT WE’VE BEEN DOING FOR THE PAST YEAR.
I REALLY DON’T SEE WHERE THE PART OF THE DEADBEAT DAD COMES IN BASED ON THAT EXPLANATION. YESTERDAY (SATURDAY, JUNE 11) I ACTUALLY PAID FOR ONLINE CLASSES ON ZOOM. I WANT TO ASK YOU GUYS TO REALLY THINK HARD ABOUT WHAT A DEADBEAT DAD MEANS BECAUSE I TAKE CARE OF MY KIDS AT ALL TIMES.
More to the money he says he sends, he also left the house for Maureen Waititu and the children because he wants them to live a comfortable life.
"WHEN WE WERE TOGETHER IN 2016, WE WERE LIVING IN RUAKA AND HAD A REALLY GOOD HOUSE WHERE WE STAYED FOR FOUR YEARS. DURING OUR SON’S (FIRSTBORN) FIRST BIRTHDAY I PROPOSED TO MAUREEN AND IT GOT TO A POINT THE LANDLADY DECIDED TO INCREASE THE RENT AND USED TO COMPLAIN TO MY MUM ABOUT THAT. SHE TOLD ME ‘THIS IS YOUR FAMILY RIGHT NOW AND I NEVER WANT TO HEAR YOU COMPLAIN ABOUT RENT AGAIN’ AND I WAS LIKE OKAY. AND SHE SAID, ‘MY HOUSE IN WESTLANDS I WANT TO GIVE IT TO YOU AS A GIFT AN ENGAGEMENT GIFT. THE PEOPLE WHO WERE LIVING THERE HAVE MOVED OUT AND WAS THINKING OF RENTING IT OUT BUT SINCE I’VE SEEN YOU’VE BECOME A MAN AND YOU GONNA HAVE A FAMILY I WANNA PASS THAT HOUSE TO YOU…
THAT’S WHERE MY CHILDREN STAY. PERSONALLY I’M NOT A MALICIOUS PERSON. RIGHT NOW MY GOAL IS TO CREATE A CONDUCIVE ENVIRONMENT FOR MY CHILDREN TO GROW UP IN. THE HOUSE IS CLOSE TO SCHOOL AND IT MAKES IT EASIER FOR ME TO VISIT THEM." FRANKIE EXPLAINED
As we speak, he is expecting his third child with his girlfriend, Corazon Kwambika who can't wait to have a child with him as she considers him an amazing dad.
