Genge hitmaker Mejja Meme Hadhija, better known by his stage name Mejja, has for the first time gone public about his failed marriage.

Following news of his divorce, Mejja’s ex-wife claimed that she was abused and kicked out of their matrimonial home by the Kansoul hitmaker.

But speaking to Radio Jambo, Mejja narrated his side of the story saying he was dumped via SMS, with his then-wife walking out on their marriage without Mejja’s knowledge.

“I had been sick for quite a while, and this was the time I was recovering. Things had just started adding up and I had gotten some gigs here and there. Yaani, blessings were coming in well.”

“We had not disagreed. Actually, we were living so happily. That day I was in Thika and I got a 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’. The next time I called her, she neither received my call nor called back,” recounted Mejja.

According to Mejja, that was the last time his ex was in their house.

“I became so uncomfortable with that message. That was the beginning of everything, and things fell apart. When I went back home she was not there, and a few things in the house were missing. I was so stressed, especially because I had wanted for long to have a family, and now I don’t know why she had just decided to leave.

“One day I decided to go see my baby and asked my wife what happened, and she just had no reason.”

The ‘Landlord’ hitmaker further added: “It ate me inside for so long but at last I decided to open up. I could not believe that the mother of my child was spending her life with another man. I was not worth being alive because as a man and with my career, you have to be happy, especially when you are performing to people, so I used to fake the smile,” Mejja said.

The story-telling rapper confessed that he contemplated suicide but was able to overcome those dark thoughts with the help of a friend.

“Committing suicide was one of the thoughts that came to my mind, especially because I felt like there was something wrong. But the best thing was that I had a friend who would come to my house. After three months, though, things started working out and I was able to move on.”

Asked if he was ready to love again, Mejja disclosed: “I am in a new relationship, which is better than the previous one. After I got into another relationship, I realised that ata heri ivo alienda because the current relationship that I am in is much better than that.”
