1) How did you and Hantz meet? The word is you guys are childhood sweethearts.
FRANCESCA: We met in February 2001 in Cap-Haitian (my hometown) when he came to play during Carnaval with his band Top Digital. Even if some people donít believe in Love at first sightÖI know that was the case for us. At first the relationship started with him being in Port-au-Prince and me in Cap-Haitien but then later on that year I moved to Port-au-Prince to continue with my high school and be closer to himÖlol. We got married 3 years later. Today we have a wonderful 2 year-old son J.
2) Did you know that he was into music when you met him, and were you worried about the reaction from your parents, knowing how Haitian parents feel about Haitian musicians?
FRANCESCA: Knowing that he was a musician scared me a lot because I knew that my mom might have not accepted. Picture thisÖIím only child, I was 17 years old and going out with a musician, I was scared of my momís reactions. At first she wasnít too thrilled about the idea, but since it was what I wanted she didnít say much, but after when she met him and spent time with him she saw how we really cared for each other she accepted us. Now she says all the time how I gave her the son she never had.
3) What is TI HANTZ's most attractive trait that attracts you to him in terms of PERSONALITY?
FRANCESCA: I love every single thing about him, thatís why I married him lol
4) Is he the jealous type when it comes to you?
FRANCESCA: Oh Hantz is a very jealous person, but since Iím jealous too I think we understand each other and the best thing that we have is communication. We always talk about everything and we try to work out every single thing that may bother us, so that it doesnít give us problems in the future. I always give that advice to my friends too, Communication is the key to everything.
5) What is your favorite song from TI ANSYTO from his career so far?
FRANCESCA: My favorite song of him is ďMy BelleĒ (Top Digital).
6) How does that make you feel when you see women going crazy over him sometimes? Does that bother you a bit, or do you sometimes get jealous?
FRANCESCA: Well, to tell you the truth, sometimes it does bother me a bit but I donít get too worried about it, because I know heís a musician and women are always going to go crazy over him, plus I knew what I was getting into when we got together, I knew he was a musician and that would come along with the package. I donít bother myself over it, at the end of the day I know my husband and I trust him so why bother?
7) Tell us something about HANTZ that the average fan would NOT know about him?
FRANCESCA: (LOL) I donít want to share anything that an average fan doesnít know.
What advice do you have for ladies that are in the same situation as you, who might have a hard time dealing with the fact that their husbands or boyfriends are musicians?
FRANCESCA: Being a musicianís wife is not easy at all, you have to learn to make concessions and you have to know yourself and mostly know the man youíre with.
9) Is it GOOD or BAD if a musician's wife accompanies his significant other on trips? Why or why not?
FRANCESCA: I canít judge really that because I personally rarely go on the trips with the band, because I have a full time job, school and my son to take care of. Even if I didnít have all that to do, I wouldnít have traveled everywhere with them. Not that Iím judging anyone who does it, I guess every one has their own conceptions.
10) Which band is your FAVORITE (Besides KREYOL LA)?
FRANCESCA: Beside Kreyol La my favorite band ever is T-vice, sa se djazz mouin depi m jeune fi m konn sak rele bal.
11)Which ARTIST or SINGER is your favorite BESIDES TI ANSYTO or members of Kreyol La?
FRANCESCA: I am a big music fan and I love everything that sounds good to my ears, I canít really single out an artist.
