A timeline of Stormzy and Maya Jama's relationship - when did the couple first meet?

Stormzy and Maya Jama are pretty much the coolest celebrity couple on the planet, and they just keep on getting better.

The rapper and presenter have now been going out for over four years and we think it’s time we take a look back at the lovebird’s relationship.

To find out everything about their first meeting to now, check out the timeline of Stormzy and Maya Jama’s relationship below…

Maya Jama and Stormzy

Stormzy and Maya first meet

The two young lovebirds first met five years ago when Maya was 19 and Stormzy, real name Micheal Omari was 20.

In October 2014, the pair hit it off at the music event Red Bull Culture Clash, however, initially, the couple were just friends.

Reflecting on their time in the friendzone with Vogue magazine Maya said: “I didn’t want anything yet, because, you know, you’re trying to do the whole friend situation first,”.


Stormzy and Maya become official

In January 2015 the couple finally moved out of the friend zone and became an official item.

Speaking about the start of their relationship in an interview with Vogue magazine Maya said:

You know, if I’m really honest, I knew I fancied him from the start. I’d do, like, obvious hints that I fancied him and then take it back because I didn’t know if he definitely liked me. And then one day we just kissed, and that was that!

Stormzy writes a song for Maya

If there’s any reason to go out with a musician its that hopefully one day you’ll get a song written about you, and Maya got just that for her 22nd birthday.

In 2016 Stormzy showed his emotional side by dedicating a track called ‘ Birthday Girl’ to Maya as a special present.

Taking to Twitter to drop the track the rapper dedicated the song to his ‘Mrs’ on her birthday in August.

The lyrics included: ” A little kiss and a happy birthday text, with you runnin’ ’round in your birthday dress, so forget all the birthday stress, you’re the birthday queen,”.

Maya makes her video debut in Big For Your Boots

For his biggest track of 2017, Stormzy made sure that Maya was right by his side.

Making their music video debut as a couple, Big For Your Boots confirmed to the wider world that the duo was official.

Posting a snapshot of the pair on set to Instagram, Stormzy captioned the pic: ” Babe, they’re getting way too big for their boots…”

Maya Jama and Stormzy break up?

In March 2018 The Mirror reported that the couple had broken up after Stromzy unfollowed Maya on social media.

The reports came soon after Stormzy’s big night at the Brits, where fans suspected something was wrong between the couple after they didn’t hug immediately upon his award win.

Reports claimed that Maya was moving out of the couple’s shared home after months of conflicting schedules.

However, rumours were soon put to rest when Maya posted a 25th birthday message to her ‘love’ on his 25th birthday.

Four year anniversary

The celebrity couple has now been officially together for four years, celebrating their anniversary on January 27th.

Posting a photo of the rapper and their dog in their shared house in Chelsea, Maya posted in January 2019 ‘Home is where the heart is’.

Seems like the couple are going from strength to strength – aww!
