TLC 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days spoilers reveal that Lisa Hamme’s latest strategy for winning over Usman Umar’s mother was a miserable failure. As 90 Days viewers know, Lisa is currently in Nigeria trying to get Usman’s mom to give her blessings on their union – because without the blessing, the couple can’t get married. It’s a race against time, and Usman’s mom has now said no to the request twice.
First, Lisa and Usman traveled to his mother’s home to meet her and ask for her blessings. Usman made sure that Lisa was dressed appropriately for the occasion, in traditional regional clothing and with no makeup in order to signal respect. But it seemed that Usman’s mom took one look at Lisa and decided that no was the answer.
The whole scene was horrific, with Usman’s mom actually getting up and walking off from the meeting in disgust. It was a total rejection and a major fail on Lisa’s part. Then, Usman asked his brother Muhammed Umar to talk with their mother and lobby on Lisa’s behalf. That fell flat, too.
And in the most recent episode of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days, Lisa even went to a mosque to pray with Umar’s mom to signal how serious she was about marrying Usman. But when Lisa asked again for blessings, Umar’s mom again said a resounding no.
But are Lisa and Usman using the wrong strategy here? After all, there do seem to be a couple of sticking points for Usman’s mom that they haven’t really addressed yet – Lisa is much older than Usman, and she’s White. Usman’s family seems to be worried that when Usman gets to the United States, he’ll be forced to be a slave.
Well, as far as Lisa’s age goes, that is what it is. But perhaps Lisa could make some headway with Usman’s mom on the slavery issue. It seems like the only real strategy at this point is to somehow successfully convince Usman’s family that Lisa has absolutely no intention of turning Usman into a slave. Maybe Lisa and Usman just need to be direct and reassure Usman’s family that Lisa doesn’t want Usman as a slave.
Of course, whether that would work at this point remains to be seen. Usman’s mom seems pretty adamant that she can’t give her blessing for this union, and really it’s out of concern for her son. Maybe if Lisa conveyed her concern for Usman a little better, she could make some headway with Usman’s mom.
Who knows what will happen here, but it’s going to take a lot better strategy to win over Usman’s mom than a goat and some prayer, that’s for sure! Stay tuned to 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days and keep CDL at the ready so you don’t miss any of the latest 90 Day Fiance news, updates, and spoilers!
