Jamal Menzies and Kim Menzies Appeared on Season 7 of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?
Following Kim and SojaBoy’s run on 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days, the pair made their relationship official and went on to star on season 7 of the 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After.
During the series, the mom of one traveled to Usman’s native country of Nigeria in hopes of getting engaged to the singer. The “I Love You” singer’s mom, Fadimatu, was hesitant to give her blessing on their marriage because of Kim’s age, since she is in her 50s and not able to give Usman biological children. Despite his mother’s concerns, Usman accepted Kim’s romantic proposal.
Fadimatu came to a solution: she would allow Kim and Usman to marry but only if Kim would be Usman’s second wife. His mother insisted that Usman first find a woman his age to marry as his first wife so he could have children with her, then he would be able to marry Kim. While Kimberly was okay with Usman having multiple wives, she was dead set on becoming his first wife.
Upon hearing Kim’s big engagement news over a video call, Jamal had some tough love for his mother and shared an interesting take on the Usman’s actions.
“You said that he doesn’t disobey his mom but he said, ‘Yes’ to your proposal,” Jamal told his mom during the November 2022 episode. “So to me, it sounds like he’s perfectly fine with deceiving his mom and disobeying her — which means he would do that to you in a heartbeat.”
Following Kim’s return to the U.S., Jamal learned that Usman asked Kim if she would consider adopting his nephew and also believed it was time for him and Jamal to meet in person.
During a December 2022 episode, Kim and Jamal made the trek to Africa despite Kim’s son not fully trusting Usman.
Usman hoped Nigeria could be a good second home for Jamal, however, Jamal heard the details of how he planned to adopt his brother’s son and he felt the rapper wasn’t being truthful when it came to his mother.
