The Amazing Race Wiki

Bakari Diarra and Samuel Chime are a team of Friends on Amazing Race Suomi 1.


Bakari "Baka" Diarra, 25, Samuel Chime, 24 Friends

"To be honest, I'm nervous like a pig. But legit black feels like we're pretty strong."

Bakari Diarra, a multi-talent in street culture, is above all known for his Vitunleija clothing brand. In addition, he is a familiar sight in rap circles, where he styles performers, performs in videos and raps himself. Social media influencer Samuel Chime, on the other hand, has been entertaining especially on Tiktok, where his Chimbula account has more than 185,000 followers. He has also put himself on the line on television.

Bakari and Samuel say they are like brothers. The twenty-something friends have known each other for about ten years. In Finland, they have travelled a lot together and abroad, for example, in Berlin and Greece. In Amazing Race, we see how a fit and athletic duo can cope with tasks where you have to stick together and keep a cool head. Bakari and Samuel confess that they often argue because they both feel they are always right.

Fun fact: The biggest stress for an extremely competitive duo would be if they were behind the other teams.[1]
