Will Lisa and Usman make it down the aisle on ’90 Day Fiancé’?

Usman and Lisa have faced many ups and downs over the course of their relationship, and things didn’t get any better on the latest episode of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days.

At the beginning of the installment, Lisa was still hung up on how she caught Usman texting another woman and telling her that he loves her. Usman tried to explain to Lisa that the exchange was pretty normal in his line of work.

Usman is a rapper in Nigeria who goes by the name “SojaBoy.” He assured Lisa that the woman he was texting was simply a fan and not someone he is seeing on the side. Lisa came to terms with what happened but she still got into a heated argument with Usman, telling him that he is a “local talent” and “wannabe player.”

Lisa was also upset that Usman had yet to propose to her in person. They got engaged online and were set to tie the knot a day after the episode of 90 Day Fiancé was filmed. Luckily, Usman presented Lisa with a ring in front of the cameras, despite this not being a custom in Nigeria.

“It was everything I wanted,” Lisa shared after Usman’s proposal. “It touched me and is something I will remember until the day I die. He’s my everything and now I’m ready to marry this man tomorrow.”

The proposal helped smooth things over between Lisa and Usman, but it did not last long. Later that evening, Lisa met up with Usman’s two older brothers, Faruq and Muhammed, and failed to make a good impression.

During a confessional, Faruq stated that he was unsure about Lisa marrying his brother, mostly because of their age difference.

Later in the episode of 90 Day Fiancé, Lisa openly discussed some of the issues she and Usman have faced, telling Faruq and Muhammed that their brother is very stubborn.

Usman was greatly offended that Lisa talked about their relationship woes in front of his family. He also did not appreciate how she lost her temper when Faruq and Muhammed told her that in Nigeria, wives are not the head of the household.

A furious Lisa told Usman that she was “done” after traveling 7,000 miles to see him. “You’re sitting there, criticizing me, and I’m not doing it,” she added. “I’m not sitting here any longer.”

Why does the ’90 Day Fiancé’ star have the same scars as his brothers?

The episode ended with Lisa and Usman’s wedding in serious doubt. While 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days fans are waiting to see what happens with the wedding, viewers are also wondering why Usman and his brothers share the same scar.

Usman, Faruq, and Muhammed all have the same scar above the eye that looks like two lines. In Nigeria, tribes will often brand their members when they are young. In the event that someone from the tribe is kidnapped or sold into slavery, they can use the markings to identify them.

According to Screen Rant, Usman’s family hails from a tribe called the Hausa, which practices the tradition of marking children. Usman and his brothers also have prayer bumps on their heads that mark how much time they have spent praying.

Lisa opens up about using the n-word

Babygirl Lisa and Usman have found plenty of things to fight about on 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days, but one of their biggest controversies happened when Usman revealed that Lisa once called him the n-word.

She understandably took a lot of heat for using the racial slur, and she recently opened up about why she thinks people were outraged by the drama.

During an appearance on The Domenick Nati Show, Lisa revealed that she apologized to Usman for using the n-word and assured fans that it “slipped out” during one of their heated arguments.

“No, that word was used out of context and out of stupidity. My husband accepted my apology, but haters don’t and they want to ride it out to no end,” she shared.
