Another 90 Day Fiancé couple is going their separate ways.
Nigeria’s Usman Umar, also known as SojaBoy, and his wife America’s Lisa Hamme have been estranged for over 6 months and are now officially getting divorced.
In an interview with InTouch from Monday, December 21, 2020, Usman confirmed that he has sent Lisa divorce papers.
In his words;
“Lisa and I are no longer together, she was served [papers] last week and she [doesn’t want to] accept it.”
The 30-year-old added that his lawyer tried to communicate with Lisa, but she “cut the call.”
He also said that his life has improved since breaking up with Lisa, describing how “happy” he is “without the drama.”
Meanwhile, 53-year-old Lisa has apologized to TLC for “the things that happened in Nigeria,” adding, “I take full responsibility for the part that I played in it.”
Lisa and Usman’s relationship began on the internet, where they spoke for 9 months before getting engaged.
Usman who was 29 years old at the time, proposed to the 53-year-old Pennsylvania native with the intention of marrying her in Nigeria, despite never seeing her in person.
Their meeting and subsequent walk down the aisle played out on season 4 of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days.
Their fans witnessed Lisa winning over Usman’s traditional family and their near breakup, before the couple tied the knot in a small civil ceremony.
However, prior to the finale in May, Lisa disclosed that they had already broken up.
According to Us Weekly, Lisa said in an Instagram Live:
“He used me. He married me just to be on a TV show that people would recognize his name to sell his music… He thinks it’s just him, he thinks he’s going to do what he wants and he’s never going to apologize for anything he’s ever said bad about me.”
She went on to accuse Usman of a “romance scam,” a claim that Usman openly denied.
In a post shared on his Instagram page, Usman said he was the one who was duped into marrying Lisa.
In the post on Monday, December 21, he wrote,
“Is either I was brain washed or I was charmed by this woman, look at my mom and brother’s faces they were all not happy but I keep on going.
“Thanks to almighty for setting ME free.”
