’90 Day Fiancé’: Michael Ilesanmi Needs a Miracle to Immigrate to the US to Live With His Wife Angela Deem
90 Day Fiancé stars Michael Ilesanmi and Angela Deem have been preparing for their wedding during the current season of Happily Ever After?. As fans know, the couple did eventually tie the knot in January 2020. But, due to COVID-19 and President Trump’s expanded travel ban, Michael and Angela still aren’t enjoying married life together in the United States.
Angela Deem could get her own ’90 Day Fiancé’ spinoff
TLC knows how to monetize a franchise. Since the premiere of 90 Day Fiancé in 2014, the network has developed nine spinoffs. And, it doesn’t appear that they have any plans to slow down.
According to Soap Dirt, Angela might be part of the tenth spinoff in the franchise that would be solely focused on her storyline. Just like Darcey Silva’s spinoff Darcey & Stacey and The Family Chantel, Angela could be getting a solo show.
Angela has said she wants to get healthy so she can carry a baby for Michael. Cameras recently spotted the Georgia native in Los Angeles with her manager Gina Rodriguez and fitness trainer Natasha Fett. Gina is Mama June’s manager, and Natasha is the woman who helped with June’s weight loss.
The speculation is that Angela could be getting her own fitness spinoff to highlight her own body transformation to prepare for pregnancy.
Michael hoped Angela would live with him in Nigeria
During the latest season of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?, Michael welcomed Angela back to his home country of Nigeria. She wanted to marry Michael in the United States in front of her family and friends. But, as Soap Dirt points out, he was not able to obtain approval for a K-1 fiancé visa.
Because of the visa problem, Michael and Angela moved their wedding to Nigeria. Their aim is to get Michael a spousal visa after the ceremony. However, when she arrived in the country, Michael secretly hoped that Angela would want to move there instead of returning to the United States.
He tried to convince her to move, explaining that Nigerian wives are usually submissive to their husbands. Angela was not on board with that idea. She told Michael that she is an American woman who doesn’t need a man to tell her what to do.
The ’90 Day Fiancé’ stars are currently on different continents
Fans will get to see Michael and Angela’s wedding in an upcoming episode of Happily Ever After?. Unfortunately, the couple has not been able to live together in America as husband and wife for the last eight months because of two huge reasons.
First, the COVID-19 pandemic shut down immigration services in the United States for weeks. This put the process of spousal visas on hold because the offices were closed. However, even if the offices were open, it wouldn’t guarantee Michael could come to America with Angela.
According to NPR, President Trump widened his travel ban back in February to include six more countries, including Nigeria. This latest proclamation prevents people from Nigeria from immigrating to the United States permanently.
At this point, it is nearly impossible for Nigerians to obtain a spousal visa. This means that Michael and Angela need a miracle if they are going to live together in Georgia anytime soon.
New episodes of the 90 Day Fiancé franchise air Sunday and Monday nights on TLC.
