Sukihana has been playing a bit of a cat-and-mouse game with social activist Dr. Umar Johnson for some time — and now she’s finally had the chance to meet him, prompting a huge response from fans on both sides of the aisle.
Taking to her Instagram on Saturday (July 29), the “Casamigos” rapper donned a long black bodycon dress and tucked her hair in a matching black cap before meeting the good doctor, who donned a traditional African shirt and white linen pants for the occasion.
Sukihana didn’t caption the photo, but it was clear in the second picture that the pair were happy to meet one another.

The pair’s meeting immediately prompted a response, with Summer Walker leaving a series of laughing-face emojis on Sukihana’s post.
There were other positive comments from around the web, as well. In a video post made by Dr. Umar shortly before the momentous meeting — which featured the activist speaking about Sukihana in a positive way — fans showed their support for the meet-up.
“Some ppl are so caught up in her videos and songs that they ignore the interviews of her actually speaking on real topics and leaving gems,” wrote one fan. “She def plays fool to catch the wise. Way smarter than some think.”
“He in love,” wrote another fan. “Is black whatchall want us in for the wedding? With head wraps?”
Other fans, however, weren’t as sanguine about their meet-up. “Time for me to unfollow this feel like some agenda type shit,” wrote one fan on another of Dr. Umar’s posts. “We suppose to move on from those who don’t vibrate to the frequency not back track lol.”
“Nah. I cnt support this one. Ain’t nothin changin and this energy coulda been used towards someone who wants to TRULY change,” wrote another fan on the same post.
The back-and-forth between Sukihana and Dr. Umar Johnson began back in September 2022, when she wrote on Twitter that she “want to fuck DR.Umar and leave him woke right now.”
“So where do I stand with sister Sukihana?” he began. “As you know, with me, it’s all about politics before the poonani. It’s always revolution over romance. It is always institution building before intimacy. Liberation over lust. Business before the bedroom.”
“Me and sister Sukihana could have a conversation,” he added before directly addressing the 31-year-old rapper.
In addition to noting how powerful their coming together could be, Dr. Umar noted that Sukihana would need to undergo some major changes before he could even consider her offer, saying, “sister Sukihana if you go down this path, you can never come back.”
Umar continued: “We’re not going going to deal with the none of the intimacy because that’s nobody’s business and we not going to be into no intimacy until we get any work done in the first place.”
On July 19, Sukihana conceded that she might be interested in being Dr. Umar’s wife. “I think I’m ready to sit with Dr.Umar,” Suki tweeted. “I seen those interviews where he spoke on me and I think he might be the one to turn me into a wife.”
And it seemed as though Dr. Umar was just as interested. “The Prince of PanAfricanism is requesting a confidential meeting with sister Suki next Friday or Saturday, July 28th or 29th, ahead of his Miami Gardens lecture,” Dr. Umar wrote on social media, “at an undisclosed public location in South Florida to discuss her interest in collaborating on a public campaign and program to combat the sexual exploitation and abuse of black girls and women.”
