Fleur East, a 27-year-old UK-based Ghanaian, lost the 2014 X-Factor finale to Ben Haenow at the Wembley Arena Saturday night. Fleur is born to Malcolm East of West of England, Wessex and a Ghanaian mother, Irene Frimpong-Manso. Irene is related to radio personality Adakabre Frimpong-Manso.

After an energy-field performance by Fleur backed by an impressive stage craft and choreography, all four judges including Simon Cowell gave her a standing ovation. She received wild and loud cheers from the live audience and was tipped for a comfortable win.  Many believe that comments from her grandfather, R O Frimpong , who had travelled from Ghana to the UK for the finale may have damaged to Fleur's chances. When asked about Fleur's performance, her grandfather, said, “I feel she is great, she’s persistently, constantly improved by day and if Fleur does not win the X-Factor 2014 there is something wrong with the whole panel.”
