Michael Ilesanmi


Michael Ilesanmi Biography


Angela Deem was a 52-year-old nursing assistant for Hospice from Hazlehurst, GA, when she became acquainted with Michael Ilesanmi, a 30-year-old from Nigeria, for the first time.

The pair talked for a few months over the phone and social media, and Michael made Angela feel appreciated and wanted. She therefore traveled to Nigeria and dated Michael, whose formal name is Kehinde Ilesanmi, despite her friends' warnings she was being scammed.

Angela questioned Michael's intentions often, and the couple bickered constantly during her stay in Nigeria.

90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days' second season ended with Angela accusing Michael of wiping out her bank account (an incident Angela later said was actually due to a bank ATM error).

After that, Angela broke up with Michael during the filming 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days Season 2's Tell-All special after hearing he had called her his "elder."

But in September 2018, Michael reportedly told a fan who commented on his Facebook page that he was "engaged" and expecting to move to the United States in 2019 under "God's grace" before changing his privacy settings to restrict public viewing of his posts.

Then, days after 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days Season 2's Tell-All special aired on TLC in October 2018, Angela changed her relationship status to "Engaged" on Facebook.

In April 2019, Michael took to Instagram and shared a photo of the couple from when they were filming the 90 Day Fiance spinoff.

"Forever and a day more," Michael wrote with a heart at the time.

And in May 2019, Angela not only confirmed the couple was still together and engaged, but also that they would be returning for Season 3 of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days.

"We are getting married! We're filming Before the 90 Days right now! He's coming here [to the United States]," Angela told a fan who saw her in New York, according to In Touch.

When asked if Michael "learned how to act right" in recent months, Angela reportedly said all good things about him.

"Yes girl, just gotta feed him some chicken and behind closed doors, he ain't back talking," Angela reportedly told the fan.

Season 3 of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days then showed Angela traveling to Nigeria a second time and working through some additional issues in their relationship -- including Michael's requirement that he have a child with Angela -- in preparation of Angela filing for Michael K-1 visa.

Immediately after Season 3 of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days completed airing, TLC also released a trailer showing that Angela and Michael would also appear on Season 7 of 90 Day Fiance, which premiered on the network in November 2019.

90 Day Fiance's seventh season showned Angela and Michael trying to get Michael's K-1 visa approved so he could move to the United States and they could get married in front of Angela's family in America.

However, Michael's K-1 visa was denied following his visa interview, so Angela then flew to Nigeria to hopefully get to the bottom of things and receive some answers as to what went wrong.

One of the options available to the couple had been to tie the knot in Nigeria and then apply for a K-3 spousal visa, but Angela had been against the idea of having her wedding in a foreign country.

However, by the time 90 Day Fiance's seventh season ended, Angela had reassessed the possibility after Michael's family pressed Angela to just marry Michael in Nigeria.

"I came on this trip thinking, 'I am not getting married here in Nigeria,' but I'm going to give it a chance and be open-minded and discuss the spousal visa," she said in an interview.

And in January 2020, Angela decided to go through with the option and married Michael in Nigeria!

Angela and Michael got married in Nigeria on January 27, according to wedding photos that leaked online.

"Guess who's finally off the market! Whoop whoop," the @communiqueglobal Instagram account captioned a pair of photos showing the 90 Day Fiance couple exchanging vows and then posing for a wedding photo.

"As the invitation said, January 27 in Nigeria!," added @fraudedbytlc, a 90 Day Fiance Instagram fan account which reposted the photos.

A pair of crew members were visible holding boom microphones over Angela and Michael as they exchanged vows, suggesting the ceremony was filmed for future broadcast on 90 Day Fiance or one of its spinoffs.

In addition, a large banner for the Federal Marriage Registry of Nigeria's Ministry of Interior was visible in the background of the photo, which showed Angela and Michael standing and facing each other while an apparent government official sitting in front of the banner presided over the ceremony.

Two additional people -- a blonde woman wearing Western-style clothing and a man dressed in traditional Nigerian garb -- were also visible sitting alongside Angela and Michael respectively.

Angela wore a flowing white wedding dress for the ceremony, while Michael wore a purple suit.

Claims that Angela and Michael had decided to attempt to resolve Michael's K-1 visa problems by getting married in Nigeria on January 27 had surfaced online the week prior after Angela was spotted at a Nigerian airport with a camera crew.

On January 19, a 90 Day Fiance viewer had posted a photo showing Angela standing in the airport's baggage claim to a Facebook group for 90 Day Fiance.

"A pastor in my fb uploaded this picture yesterday when he arrived from Canada to Nigeria. Look who is in the back lol," the Facebook poster wrote alongside the photo.

The photo unintentionally captured Angela and three crew members filming behind the pastor and showed Angela talking to the camera as two crew members filmed the 90 Day Fiance star with a camera and a microphone pole as a producer stood beside the cameraman.

The Southern blonde looked as passionate as ever in the photo, pointing toward the camera with her arm raised into the air.

However, whether there was a specific purpose for Angela's new trip to Nigeria remained unclear until a couple of days later when the @hundred_percent_true_shit Instagram account claimed Angela had returned to Nigeria to wed and posted a photo of an alleged copy of the couple's wedding invitation.

"Well, it looks like a wedding will happen after all," the Instagram account captioned the photo. "Nobody not even the US Government tells Angie Baby she can't have her Michael."

While the account redacted the wedding's location from the alleged invitation, the wedding's date was not censored and stated the ceremony would occur January 27.

Shortly afterward, @fraudedbytlc posted that it had also confirmed the wedding news.

"@hundred_percent_true_shit has the breaking news. I have received confirmation that Angela is in Nigeria to get married there!," the account wrote.

"No clue on the legitimacy of this being their actual invitation BUT my sources say the wedding in Nigeria is going to happen and will be filmed. More news coming as we get it."

In May 2020, TLC announced Angela and Michael will appear on Season 4 of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?, which will premiere on the network on June 14.
