Mejja opens up about his life
Amidst the pandemic, Mejja can confidently say that 2020 was one of his best years. The now gengetone artist was releasing a song after another, which were all hit songs.
Despite being a low-key person when it comes to his personal life, Mejja has opened up about his past life.
He and his siblings were raised by a single mother and that explains why he uses his mum’s name as his surname. Their dad walked out on them and their mum had to struggle to raise them alone.
”I call myself Khadija because my father was a sperm donor. As a child, I didn’t understand the sacrifices she made for us. Sometimes, I would find her crying in the house and she would act like nothing was wrong
When I grew up and had my family, I realized she went through a lot to raise three boys. After coming to Nairobi, people would always comment about the name saying it’s a woman’s so I started insisting mtoto wa Khadija. She’s my inspiration,”
Despite him having baby’s outside marriage, Mejja vowed never to let them go through what he went through when he was a kid. He promised to be there for all his children.
”I have faced so many challenges that in an ideal situation, my father’s advice would have come in handy- but I had to deal with a lot on my own. There are some things you can’t tell your mother as it would give her more stress.
People don’t realize that I have children- I promised myself to never be away from them. I didn’t want to raise my kids outside the family unit but circumstances forced me to. It doesn’t matter if we are not together with baby mama- the child did nothing wrong”
