Angela's Social Media:

Background

Angela Deem has become a viral face on social media, as many people were fascinated by her story when she first appeared on television dating a younger Nigerian. She became the subject of many conversations and the basis of many harsh jokes on Twitter. However, after the show, she has built a reputation as a digital marketer and brand ambassador.

Born on December 9, 1965, in Hazlehurst, Georgia, Deem is a fierce Sagittarius. She attended Boone High School in her hometown. She has two adult daughters from a previous marriage and six grandchildren with whom she spends all her free time. Her mother, Glenda Standridge, sadly passed from cancer while Deem was working on the “90-day Fiance” project.

She met Michael Ilesanmi, a 30-year-old Nigerian, on Facebook in 2017, and she began to date him despite several warnings from her friends. She discovered Michael’s formal name wasn’t Michael; instead, it was Kehinde. This discovery made her livid, and she became paranoid as she couldn’t tell what other lies he had told her.

She tried to help Michael get a K-1 visa to allow him to come to the United States. The embassy rejected the request, and she went to find out why the visa was denied. Eventually, she agreed to marry Michael in Nigeria so that he could apply for a K-3 spousal visa. She returned to the United States and is leveraging her social media following to work as a brand influencer for products and medical procedures.
