Mejja's story and what other musicians can learn about self-reinvention

Genge rapper Major Nemeye Khadija known by his stage name Mejja has opened up about his life as a hustler before the fame and money.

Speaking during an interview on NTV’s The Wicked Edition with Dr King’ori, Mejja revealed that he used to sell groundnuts and stick posters.

The ‘Nko Poa’ hit maker says he even stuck a poster of Jua Cali not knowing that one day he would work with him. He further says that he was motivated to join music after people poked fun at him for expressing interest in pursuing a career in music.

“Nlikuwa nauza njugu na kubandika posters around town. Nimewahi ata bandika poster ya Juacali, sikujua ntawahi kutana naye,” said Mejja.

Adding that

“Kuchongolewa ndio ilinipea psyche ya kuendelea kuandika ngoma.”
