Samirah was born in 2014 when her father wasn’t even competing in the UFC. At that time Kamaru Usman was under a contract with LFC, which stands for Legacy Fighting Championship.

The life of Kamaru Usman’s daughter

Samirah Usman has an Instagram account that is monitored and managed by her parents. She has 8,000+ followers and 150+ posts that keep her followers entertained.

She also has a YouTube channel by the name of Samirah Usman with 147 subscribers and only 5 videos. Her last video was uploaded about 8 months ago where she was seen dancing with the Welterweight kingpin. In between the dance, Samirah showed her kicking skills and threw leg kick at ‘The Nigerian Nightmare’.

Even the UFC Welterweight champion had no answer for his daughter’s kicking skills. However, the account has remained inactive since then. Kamaru Usman can be spotted in nearly every video which shows how caring he is.

Usman is not so open about his wife as she has been kept as a secret from the outer world but his daughter is the opposite.
