Frank has always had a passion for acting; he moved to Ghana in 2009 with the sole intention of joining the Ghanaian movie industry. The first movie he did ‘Who Loves Me’ shot him to limelight. He had established himself in Ghana before moving into Nollywood which is why most people may think he is Ghanaian.
