Usman shares BTS footage of him and Kim spending time together, and the 90 Day Fiancé star says TLC does Kim a disservice by not airing such footage.
Usman Umar, aka Sojaboy, recently shared behind-the-scenes footage of Kimberly Menzies from 90 Day Fiancé and calls Kim a “victim” of TLC editing. Usman and Kim’s relationship is currently being chronicled on 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? season 7. The 50-year-old American woman started as a fan of the 32-year-old Nigerian rapper before becoming his primary girlfriend turned fiancé. This comes after Usman’s other 90 Day Fiancé relationship with Lisa Hamme, which ended in a turbulent divorce.
Kim spent much of Happily Ever After? season 7 in Nigeria with Usman, but the rapper posted on Instagram that he wasn’t totally pleased with the portrayal. Usman posted clips on Instagram that weren’t shown to viewers of the TV series featuring himself and Kim visiting the king of Usman’s province. In the caption, Usman called out TLC, 90 Day Fiancé, and Sharp Entertainment for not airing footage showing he and Kim engaging in his culture’s traditions in a positive light. He wrote, “I think the best selling point is to show how bad [I am] and how innocent and victim @itskimberly90 is.” He added that he hoped 90 Day Fiancé fans enjoyed the unused footage, which features colorful outfits, lively music, and other ceremonious cultural celebrations.
Kim Menzies Also Posted About Meeting Usman’s King
Kim also shared the moment with her followers on Instagram with a series of photos of her meeting the king. According to Kim, meeting the king “is a high honor in [Usman’s] country,” and said “it was a special night.” Fans in the comments had their doubts, but Kim confirmed that the event “was filmed but not put in the show.” Though Kim didn’t seem to take issue with the fact that TLC decided not to air that footage, Usman appears to be more upset that 90 Day Fiancé shied away from showing Kim’s appreciation and respect for his culture.
It’s a bit shocking to hear Usman slam 90 Day Fiancé and its creators for believing that the portrayal of his relationship with Kim was untrue. Especially in comparison to his relationship with Lisa, Usman and Kim seem to actually be on a similar page with one another and willing to compromise for their happily ever after. The portrayal seems to show the building blocks of what could be another successful relationship from the unconventional dating show.
Most moments from Happily Ever After? season 7 didn’t show Usman as the bad guy and Kim as an innocent victim. The rapper may be unhappy with viewers who have taken a similar stance to that opinion based on the footage they saw, and he’s trying to show that Kim has the utmost respect for his culture in the deleted clips. Now that Usman and Kim are engaged, it seems viewers will get to continue to watch the couple’s 90 Day Fiancé love story play out, that is, if Usman isn’t boycotting filming after his negative comments about the editing of the series.
