90 Day Fiance star Michael Ilesanmi and Angela Deem are taking on social media fakers. The pair are dealing with a fake Instagram account using Angela and Michael’s names.
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 long standing babakeke26 page is a poser. By the looks of it, the dubious account managed to convince Michael and Angela Deem fans that it is the real deal.
As a matter of fact, it raked in over fifty 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 speaking from their joint Instagram they recently launched.
90 Day Fiance: ‘Fake’ Michael Threatens The ‘Real’ One?
Michael Ilesanmi issued a stern warning to the person running the fake page. “We don’t want any fan page!”
And he and Angela Deem encouraged fans to report the fake account to Instagram. He also asked for their videos and photos to be taken off the page asap. Now, IG shut down the fraudulent account.
90 Day Fiance: Fake Account Strikes
Shortly after the 90 Day Fiance alum called the page out, the other lashed back. But now it’s down. 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 reached out to their 90 Day Fiance followers to “kindly unfollow” the page that many thought was Michael’s. This led to 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 him 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 ones 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 90 Day Fiance 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.
