It didn’t take long to reveal the identity of Apollo Nida’s fiance. Bravo was reportedly keeping Sherien Almufti’s identity quiet as she filmed for Real Housewives of Atlanta. The popular reality TV show wanted to shock viewers when they bring Almufti face to face with Apollo’s ex-wife Phaedra Parks in an upcoming episode.
Apollo is currently serving an eight-year sentence for fraud and identity theft charges in a New Jersey prison. It turns out that his soon-to-be wife Sherien also lives in New Jersey and is close enough to Apollo that she visits him twice a week. It has been reported that Sherien is a real estate agent, and by the look of it, she is also helping to promote Apollo’s business, Nida Fitness, on her own Instagram account.
The Inquisitr previously reported that Apollo and Sherien have been “dating” the entire time that he has been serving out a prison sentence. It was reported that Apollo met his new fiance just before reporting to prison, and she has been visiting him ever since.
Even though Apollo popped the question, and Sherien obviously said yes, she isn’t rocking a huge engagement ring. As a matter of fact, she’s not wearing a ring at all because Apollo isn’t able to get one for her while he’s behind bars. That token of his love will likely have to wait until he is released from prison unless Sherien Almufti picks out her own ice.
Fameolous reported that Sherien’s identity was proven when footage of Apollo Nida’s fiance surfaced and showed her filming Real Housewives of Atlanta. According to the report, Sherien was provided with a borrowed jacket and Chanel purse in a scene with Peter Thomas and Todd Tucker. She also reportedly filmed with Kandi Burruss, who was said not to be so friendly with the RHOA newcomer.

In recent weeks, Apollo Nida has been active on Instagram again, and some fans may be wondering how that is possible. While serving out his sentence, Apollo isn’t allowed to have a cell phone, and he doesn’t have access to social media either. However, he has been dropping hints about his new fiance on Instagram for a couple of weeks now.
Just two weeks ago, Apollo started posting on Instagram again after 18 weeks of nothing. In his first post, he congratulated Todd Tucker and Kandi Burruss on their new restaurant and commented that he couldn’t wait to see it.
Soon after, Apollo posted again, and this time, it was a meme of a man and a woman with a message that said, “Every man needs a woman when his life is a mess, because just like in a game of chess; the queen protects the king.” While that alone might not mean anything, it was Apollo’s comment that gave us the first clues that he isn’t all that worried about divorcing Phaedra Parks because he’s definitely not been lonely in the two years he’s spent in prison. Apollo further hinted that he has a new woman with a caption that reads, “Hail to the queen!”
While it’s not certain that Apollo Nida is actually writing the Instagram posts himself, they sure do sound a lot more personal than many in the past. Normally, whatever is posted clearly comes from his team, whoever that may be, but the most recent posts definitely sound more personal, including one from Monday after news broke that he was getting married again. Apollo reposted an older Instagram picture of himself over the headline about being engaged in prison. In the caption, he wrote, “You see that smile? That’s how she makes me feel all over!” So far, Nida hasn’t posted any pictures of himself actually in prison, so there’s no telling if his team is trying to make the posts sound like him or if it is actually Apollo writing them.
