A 30-year-old Nigeria man, Usman Umar, known as SojaBoy, and America’s Lisa Hamme, who were both involved in a 90-Day Fiancé show, are going their separate ways.
According to reports, they have been estranged for more than six months and are now officially getting divorced, Within Nigeria reports.
In an interview with InTouch on December 21, 2020, Usman, who is an artiste from the northern part of the country, confirmed he has sent Lisa divorce papers.
“Lisa and I are no longer together, she was served [papers] last week and she [doesn’t want to] accept it,” he was quoted as saying.
He 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, it was said that 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.”
The American and Usman’s relationship began on the internet, where they spoke for nine months before getting engaged.
Usman, who was 29 back then, proposed to the Pennsylvania native with the intention of marrying her in Nigeria, despite never seeing her in person.
Fans witnessed Lisa winning over Usman’s traditional family and their near breakup on the show, before the pair tied the knot in a small civil ceremony.
However, prior to the finale in May, Lisa revealed 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 him of a “romance scam,” a claim that Usman denied.
Usman wrote on Instagram that he was the one who was deceived into marrying Lisa.
“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,” he wrote on Monday.
