Besides her music, Marya’s popularity increased due to her love relationship with rapper Mustapha that turned sour.
After two years of dating and living together, the couple had a nasty spilt in 2011 with Marya moving back to her parents’ house.
She then took a hiatus from the music and has never really been back. During the hiatus Marya met Dubai-based Kevin Mutisya and started another relationship, which was blessed with a son who was born in January 2017.
The two kept their love life private until recently when Marya broke the news on her social media handles that she was now a single mum.
“They wished and their wishes were granted. Being a single mum will not be easy but God will guide me through,” she wrote in a post which she later pulled down.
This news comes just months after Marya announced she got saved.
Jalang’o: I was nervous!
Top comedian and Mcee Jalang’o has revealed that hosting former US president Barrack Obama’s function was the most difficult event he has ever handled.
Jalang’o, who was the Master of Ceremony when Barrack Obama visited the country early this week to preside over the launch of his half-sister Auma Obama Sauti Kuu Foundation, said he wasn’t sure if he was up to the task.
“I was very nervous because I was not sure I would be able to handle such a big event,” the comedian is quoted.
Jalang’o, who is eyeing a political seat come 2022, went on to add that he had to go through a thorough grilling process from Obama’s security detail before he was cleared.
“I had to go through meetings and interviews, where I would meet the secret service. It was a long process. I could not use my phone a few days to the event due to security reasons,” he added.
Before Obama’s event, Jalang’o said his biggest event he has ever hosted was the 2010 World Cup in South Africa however it went unnoticed because there were no selfies then that he would have used to take credit.
