Who is Giannis’ Brother, Francis Antetokounmpo?

Francis Antetokounmpo

Francis Olowu Ofili Adetokunbo (Antetokounmpo) is the oldest son of Charles Antetokounmpo and Veronica Antetokounmpo. Francis has four other brothers and all of them are known for their amazing basketball skills. Two of the Antetokounmpo brother are even associated with National Basketball Association.

Francis is a talented Nigerian basketball player, football player, and singer. In this blog post, we will be talking about the oldest Antetokounmpo brother’s early life, his relationship, and net worth, basically, we will take a closer look at his life.

Early Life Of Francis Antetokounmpo

Francis was born on October 20, 1988, in Lagos, Nigeria to father Charles Antetokounmpo and mother Veronica Antetokounmpo. Antetokounmpo family has five brothers and Francis is the oldest one. According to various sources when Francis was still a child his parents moved to Athens, Greece to improve the quality of their lives and left Francis with his grandparents in Nigeria, later Francis also moved to Athens.

Francis is a high-school and college graduate but there is no information on what school or university he went to. Not only he and his brothers but their parents are also athletes and they just took a step in their parent’s traits, as for their father Charles he was a soccer (football) player and their mother Veronica was a high jumper.

All of the Antetokounmpo brothers have successfully built or earned names for themself in the sports industry. And Francis may not be popular as a basketball player like his brothers but he has explored a variety of genres than his other family.

According to various sources, their original last name is actually ”Adetokunbo” but Francis’s brother Giannis’s passport had a spelling mistake so the whole family changed it.

Career Of Francis

All of his brothers were pursuing basketball for their profession so Francis also chooses to play basketball and began a career as a basketball player and he is known as a semi-professional basketball player, he used to play for Filathlitikos a small local club.

As he was pretty athletic he also used to play football (it can also be because his father used to play football) and he is better known as a football professional. He has played for various clubs from Nigeria and Greece like AE Sparti and Aititos Spaton but he left Aittitos Spaton on June 23, 2019. He used to play as a midfielder in both AE Sparti and Aititos Spaton.

After he left Aittitos Spaton he shifted his career and interest in music, later in 2020 he released his first official single “Shekosi,” the song has 146k total views now and he has 186k total youtube subscribers. After his first single he has released his other songs as well like ”Jump On It,” ”Obago featuring Obi Iross,” and ”That Ting featuring King Kanja.” He is also active on social media, maybe he will release his new music soon we don’t have information about his new project but if there is a new project coming soon then he surely will share the news on his social media account.

He named himself Olifi in his songs, the name is originated from Nigeria so it may be to show his Nigerian roots. (this is just my opinion) And there are even reports that his mother Veronica was really interested in singing and could even sing, so it may have inspired him to pursue his career in the music industry.

In his first official single “Shekosi” a Serbian actor ”Darko Peric” made a guest appearance, doesn’t ring the bell? He played the role of ”Helsinki” in Netflix’s original Spanish thriller series La Casa de Papel (Money Heist).

Personal Life

We don’t have any information about his personal life as he keeps his personal life low and private. As for his relationship status, various sites and resources say that he’s single but I don’t think he is single but the fact is we don’t really know if he is in relation with someone or single as he keeps his personal life private.

How Much Does He Earn? (His Net Worth)

He used to be a semi-professional basketball player and later played football for a few clubs he must have earned from the sport and now he is into music, surely he is making money from music now so after looking through various reports and sources he has a net worth $1 million estimated.

The Antetokounmpo brothers organized “Antetokounbros 5K Run” in  Athens, Greece, partnering with Nike. Francis, Thanasis, Giannis, and Alex were part of it and they ran together with others who came to support them in their course.
