Making it official? 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days stars Usman “SojaBoy” Umar and Kimberly Menzies have been one of the most captivating couples on season 5 of the TLC spinoff. With a nearly two-decade age gap and long-distance being factors in their relationship, fans are divided over if they will last in the end. Keep reading to find out the latest details on if Usman and Kimberly are still together.
Are Usman and Kimberly Still Together?
Kimberly and Usman noticeably did not post any tributes specifically to each other on Valentine’s Day 2022. Nonetheless, the California resident did share a heart-filled animation of them, which had the message, “You have potential.”
“Happy Valentine’s Day!!! Love is Love,” she captioned her post on February 14.
However, it seems the couple may still be going strong. On March 3, Kim and SojaBoy appeared on a joint Instagram Live. According to the since-deleted video, which was saved and reposted by blogger 90 Day The Melanated Way, SojaBoy “freestyled” a new song about his lady love.
During the same IG Live, Kim also slammed speculation that their love story is not “real.”
“I started out as Usman’s fan and then I became his friend,” she explained. “I want people to know that my relationship or anything I do in my life is not a fraud. I don’t roll like that.”
Are Kimberly and SojaBoy Boyfriend and Girlfriend?
SojaBoy and Kimberly have both been outspoken about their feelings for each other, and unfortunately, that didn’t end up translating when the pair spent a night together in Tanzania on the show.
The “Zara” rapper explained to his new love that Nigerian culture frowns upon premarital sex, which is why he was moving more slowly with Kimberly than he did with ex-wife Lisa Robinson (née Hamme).
“It was a great first step that Usman stayed the night, but now, I want the other parts of it,” Kim admitted in her confessional on the January 30 episode. “I want the kissing. I want the sex. I want the intimacy.”
“I’m really trying to be respectful of Usman’s culture, but we only have this time together before he goes back to Nigeria and I go back to the States,” she noted.
Since Kim only had a few days left in Tanzania, she applied the pressure to Usman the following day and gave him an ultimatum: if they did not get intimate during this trip, she would no longer be interested in being friends with him and she would start dating other men when she returned to America.
Usman wasn’t ready to lose her, so he gave in and they consummated their relationship on the February 20 episode. The following morning Usman officially asked Kimberly to be his girlfriend and after she accepted, which aired in the February 27 episode. Once they became boyfriend and girlfriend, SojaBoy gave her the nickname: “Queen Kimberly.”
Are Usman and Kim’s Relationship Real?
SojaBoy professed his love for Kimberly before the new season aired on TV, telling Entertainment Tonight in December 2021 that he adored her with “all my bones [and] my heart.”
The Bares All alum said that Kimberly initially had been a big fan of his and reached out to him personally via direct messages before they decided to meet face to face. He also discussed dating older women, telling the publication that his type is more correlated to “someone who is going to give me peace.”
“Right now, I am in love,” he continued. “I love Kimberly, I can say that any way in the world. I love her. I’m not shy. I’m not ashamed. I am proud to say that I love her. I love her for real.”
Fans will just have to wait and see if they stick together!
