90 Day Fiance star Michael Ilesanmi is not letting posers use his and Angela Deem‘s name on social media. The 30-year-old from Nigeria lashed out at a fake Instagram account using Angela’s name.
90 Day Fiance: Michael Ilesanmi Called Out ‘Fake’ IG Account
Earlier this week, Michael Ilesanmi lashed out at an Instagram account that is fake. The 90 Day Fiance celeb claimed the person behind the page “deemangela” is a poser. By the looks of it, the dubious account managed to convince Angela Deem’s fans that it is the real deal.
As a matter of fact, it already raked in over thirty thousand followers and still counting. It’s not uncommon for fake celebrity accounts to build a large number of followers. Some fake celeb accounts have more followers than the real celebrities accounts. Many 90 Day Fiance cast members are targets of fake accounts.
Michael Ilesanmi told 90 Day Fiance fans that the page is not connected to him and Angela Deem. He said that the only legit Instagram page he has is the one with the name “babakeke26_”.
90 Day Fiance: ‘Fake’ Michael Threatens The ‘Real’ One?
Michael Ilesanmi issued a stern warning to the person running the fake Angela Deem page. “We don’t want any fan page!” Michael Ilesanmi’s real Instagram posted. “Stop this! Last warning! Already reported this account. Keep one and I will find you soon!” He also asked for their videos and photos to be taken off the page asap.

90 Day Fiance: ‘Fake’ Account Strikes
Interestingly, the fake account fired back at the reality star. Shortly after the 90 Day Fiance alum called the page out, it put up a photo claiming the “babakeke26_” account is the fake one. This is not the first time that the page claimed Michael’s IG account is fake.
It could be that Angela and Michael have plans for a future fan page and are busy shutting down all the fake profiles. It appears that Angela Deem announced that Michael will be closing his personal Instagram account. She even asked their 90 Day Fiance followers to “kindly unfollow” the page shortly after it reached fifty thousand followers. This led confusion to those who are following their journey online.
Fans Confused Which One’s Real
Some 90 Day Fiance fans couldn’t help but get confused as to which account is fake. The fake profile is swiping pictures from some of Michael’s other social media accounts and loading the fake account with lots of personal pictures and videos of Angela and his fiance Angela.
There are even some wild fan based rumors that Michael is running both accounts and plotted the whole drama as a form of a publicity stunt? The Nigeria native and Angela Deem will appear on the show’s current season. Some fans think it could be a way to draw attention. However, Angela has stayed away from social media. And there’s not much point in building an Instagram profile and calling it fake when there’s enough real fake one’s out there to call out.
An insider revealed to Soap Dirt that Angela Deem and Michael Ilesanmi were added to the lineup at the last minute to spice up an otherwise boring season. There were also claims that the couple will only appear in three or four episodes unless TLC flips the script based on the show’s ratings. So far, Michael and Angela have yet to comment on the issue.
