Katung posted on Monday about the messages that he was getting ever since he released the information that Lisa would be on his show. “Sadly I am getting vile messages and threats to not have Lisa on my IG live tomorrow.

I look forward to seeing everyone else at 1 pm EST, 6 pm WAT.” The show must go on right? Katung’s show is called Make the Most out of the Least and he does have quite the following.

Katung begins telling his fans, “Considering that this platform is about promoting positivity, it only felt fair that we should hear both sides.” He is referring to the interview he did with Usman Umar just a few days before. Fans were excited that he wanted to give Lisa a chance to tell her side of the story too, although he did get a lot of backlash for it. He begins the interview getting to know more about her and her job. She explains that she is a hospice care worker and that she is currently not working due to COVID-19, but when she plans on going to Nigeria as soon as the travel bans are lifted. She goes into a little detail about how she does have a 15-year old daughter. After telling Katung more about her life and job, he wants to move onto the more pressing questions. So brace yourselves, Lisa talks in circles for a lot of this, so we will give you the highlights.
He dives right in and asks, “Are you a racist?” Lisa tells him, “No. I am not a racist woman. My family has almost every type of race in it. I traveled to the home country to meet my fiance and I married him. If I was racist, why would I travel to Africa and marry a Hossa man? Makes no sense.” Then Katung asks, “So why do people say you called him the n-word on TV?” And that’s when Lisa’s service goes out and he waits patiently for her to return.
Luckily she comes back! He asks the question again, “Are you racist?” Lisa says, “No sir. I’m not. There’s many races in my family, around the world actually. We have fellow Africans in our family. We have Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, so no, I am not racist nor is my family. I traveled to the home country to meet my best friend, my fiance, and I married this man. So, no I’m not racist. I believe a lot of it is because of the misconception of what they saw on television. That they think I’m this horrible person. Honestly, Usman can tell you. When we first met, I’m the one who backed him when he wasn’t too sure. I said, ‘Always believe in that dream. Go for it. You have a very strong voice.’ So I do believe my husband is going to succeed and be a very huge star in this industry.” We are not sure why she brought this up in the question about if she is racist or not. This is just one place where she turns the subject matter and avoids the question all together.
Katung tells her that he wants to be as clear as possible in this interview and he asks her, “So why do you use the n-word?” Lisa tells him, “Um, that’s what they called me over there in Nigeria and it is a bad word. There’s no doubt. It’s used here in America, it’s used basically everywhere, but that term of the n*gga word, it is not referring to a black person. That’s referring to any type of race. It is a slang term that is used by many. I made the mistake of saying it….” And the Katung interrupts her, “Is that true though? I’m asking because I’m from Africa and the n-i-g-g-a word never really meant as big to me. I heard it in rap, but I doubt that African Americans would agree that is just a term for colored people.”
Lisa pauses for a second, “No, it’s not for colored people. It’s not just for the African race. It is used by every race. Every race! You will see that word is used in many different cultures.” Then he says to her, “I will have to do research and we may come back to this.”
We will have more of this interview today and Lisa will also explain to Katung how she is receiving death threats from her online stalker. 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days airs on Sunday at 8 p.m. EST on TLC.
