Angela Kaye Deem
December 9, 1965
Angela Deem has become a viral face on social media, as many people were fascinated by her story as she appeared on television dating a much younger Nigerian. She became the subject of many conversations and the basis of many jokes on Twitter. However, after the show, she has built a reputation as a digital marketer and brand ambassador. Deem was born on December 9, 1965, in Hazlehurst, Georgia, and her zodiac sign is Sagittarius. Her mother’s name is Glenda Standridge, and she passed away from cancer while Deem was away working on the “90-day Fiance” project. She is a Caucasian American who works as a nursing assistant. She attended Boone High School and school in Hazelhurst, Georgia. She has two adult daughters from a previous marriage and six grandchildren with whom she spends all her free time.
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 back 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.
