“Big up to girls who respect themselves” Mejja responds to Shakilla diss


When Mejja was featured in the number one song in Kenya, Nairobi, so many people came at him for the verse he dropped.

People did not like it and everyone has an opinion like Bensoul said. But one Shakila who makes sure she trends every day by what she does or says was did not have the nicest words to Mejja.


She said he gives mediocre verses.

He has never responded to her. Vivian is the one who tried to salvage the situation by saying she has a crush on him.

Speaking to Mwende and Cleo, he finally addressed this situation and he did not have something nice to say. If you know, you know.

“First of all, have nothing to say to her. I am not happy with the way people are normalizing abnormality. And I will not be the one to reward abnormality. I think it is high time Kenyans should be aware of this. There is a girl who does not expose her nudity, she is well educated you get? She is hustling and has not gotten a job for a year. But there is this one who is using remotes and doing the most and she is given a job and money. You are teaching the lady with principles that it is okay to be abnormal because I am decent and I respect myself but I am not winning. And that is why I will not reward abnormality.

Big up to those girls who respect themselves.”

We parted ways in 2020 – Mejja confirms split from his wife

Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Kenyan rapper Mejja has seen a career resurgence these past two years. The man has become the collabo king with a well-timed verse from the lanky rapper being enough to get your song repeat airplay.

As such, people have become more interested in his personal life, which makes sense. People are curious beings-we like finding out more about the people we watch/ listen to.

So that means Mejja’s private life is under the microscope at the moment with the increased success that he has been having in his career.

Mejja aka Okwonkwo has for the first time spoken about the status of his marriage. He did so with Tuko.Co.Ke where he said they parted way amicably in December 2020. The artiste did not disclose the exact reason or cause of their split but confirmed it was mutual.

”Me and my wife are not together at the moment. It is one of those cases I myself cannot understand. It is confusing because we were just fine, in layman’s language I would say she found her happiness in something else and it is her right, same way I would have wanted her to understand me. Everyone is supposed to be happy. It is so hard to let a girl go not because she did anything wrong to you but just because maybe she wanted to find her happiness in something else, for example a job,” Mejja said.

He said that it had been a tough decision for him and his wife, ”We parted ways in December 2020, and it depressed me. Have tried talking to her twice about this but we have not come to a solution because it is a very tricky issue. I wish the happiness she wanted was something I could get from the shop, I would have given her.”

Adding, ”She is a good mum and will thank her because she changed my life. She made me a prayerful man and she was my number one fan. She used to help me when writing lyrics.” Mejja stated.

“My father was a sperm donor” Mejja says as he talks about his relationship with his kids

Genge singer Mejja had arguably the best year of his career in 2020 with the singer being featured in numerous collaborations.

Some might even call it the year of Mejja, with the rapper making every song he was featured in better in every way, shape and form-Yes, even with tumbler he has become synonymous with!

While his success has made him a household name, that doesn’t mean many Kenyans actually know the story behind the tall lyrical MC.

Yesterday, Mejja was interviewed by the lovely Massawe Jappani, who was able to get the rapper to reveal personal details about his parents, something he had decided to keep under wraps from fans.

The musician came clean on why he had chosen to use his mum’s surname instead of his dad’s, explaining that he and and his siblings were raised by a single mum; who struggled but sacrificed her life to give her kids the life they deserved.

He said that his father had walked out on him and his siblings; forcing their poor mum to struggle on her own with no one else to help her. He said,

“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.”

He went on to add;

“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,”

And while the singer might have children with a baby mama, it doesn’t mean that he will take the route his absentee father took. “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.”

He went on to add, “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.”

My Mum Khadija!!!! LaKiNi Haribu Kitambaa UtaJua UJui Kichapo Galore Lol😂😂😂😂But I Love Her Hiyo Kichapo Ndio Imefanya Niwe Mimi!!!!


So many of us live with memories of not sitting on dad’s chair, or having to put up with plastic covers on the seas all to keep off dirt. Anyway that’s all in the past as Mejja indicated. She raised a champion.

The Genge rapper has been showing off his new girlfriend after being dumped by his wife via text message.

The father of one in an interview with Word Is confessed he was depressed and started feeling suicidal following her exit from their marital home.

“We had not disagreed, actually we were so happy. I was in Thika and I got her message asking me if I had arrived well. I told her yes and the next thing she told me was ‘Move on with your life’,” he said.

“The next time I called her, she neither received nor returned my calls.”


We are happy he has found love again, and wish him the best.
