Love In The Flesh: Are Jess Jardim And Kwame Boateng Still Together?
At the time of writing this article, it was unclear if Jess Jardim and Kwame Boateng were still together.
The duo first connected 5 years before they filmed Love In The Flesh. Surprisingly, the two never Facetimed each other successfully because Kwame wouldn’t agree to appear on the screen. So, it was only natural Jess felt like she was being catfished.
But little did Jess know that Kwame was a high flyer. He’s got his big plans for earnings and didn’t want his other half to be interested in him for the wrong reasons. Also, he shared that he didn’t want his successes and city boy lifestyle to give the wrong impression.
Another reason why Kwame avoided seeing/meeting Jess was that he believed that he looked better in real life and wouldn’t want to disappoint her before they met in person.
However, as much as Jess had doubts about him, she also know that Kwame was the perfect man for her. A family man who always lived with his parents, Kwame was undoubtedly the perfect match for the single mom. In fact, Jess shared that she knew Kwame before she got pregnant. But Kwame is unfazed a little by this revelation.
Letting her followers in on the secret, Jess took it to her IG on March 12, 2022, to write, “THE SECRET IS FINALLY OUT. I’m so excited for being part of #loveintheflesh on @bbcthreeHosted by @zara_mcdermott.”
Also, a day before the Love In The Flesh’s premiere on March 25, she promoted the show over IG captioned, “WHO IS READY FOR TOMORROW NIGHT.”
