In an interview with Thelca Wilkie, Maje Ayida talks on his estranged relationship with Toke Makinwa, how it affected his business and his new role as a father.
On how he met Toke:
“We met at a boat club in Lagos. She is a great person. She is going to keep flying and she is going to soar because that is how great she is. You guys haven’t seen anything yet about how special this girl is”.
Talking about his son Micah from his babymama Anita Solomon, Maje said he is still learning on his new role as a Father
“I am still learning. Its a whole new world. Its a whole lot of self discovery to come so I just take each day as it comes. Its life. Like is evolving. Life is crazy. You just got to hold on, strap up and move on.”
About the media attention he had last year after his breakup, Maje said
“I had a very dramatic year last year. I am kind of slowly trying to climb out of that hole. How did I deal with it? I focused on my work. I put my work forward and allowed that speak for me. A couple of the big brands I work with got a bit spooked. Business wasn’t actually kicking”.
Asked whether it was fair for him to have been in the face of the media at the time, Maje said
“I think its life. I think it happens. If you are in the media for the wrong reason, its going to affect you”.
On plans to get married again, Maje who will be 44 this year simply said,
“No. I don’t know”.
Lessons he learnt, Maje concluded,
“I learnt that people could be vicious. People could be judgmental when they no nothing about you or anything about your story or where you are coming from but its fine. Hold on to the people that do know you. They are the ones that matter and don’t get derailed”.
