Maje Ayida has never seen our son in person – Toke Makinwa’s ex-husband’s baby mama
In an exclusive chat with LIB, Maje Ayida’s first baby Mama, Crystal Cunningham, said:
“To be honest, there isn’t much to tell other than exactly what I wrote. Every year for my son’s birthday, I do a post giving thanks for his life. It may seem new on your end as you guys are now knowing about me but on my end the reality has always been that I am a single parent. It’s never been a secret…at least not from where I stand. I proudly take care of my little boy.
He gives me so much strength and motivation to achieve and accomplish so much. “With respect to Maje, maybe you should ask him, what’s the nature of his relationship with his son. For me it’s very sad and disappointing that people will take liberty in commenting about me and casting judgement without even knowing my story.
I work so hard, long hours, weekends even, to make sure that my son has the best of everything, particularly education. And it has been like that for the past 6 years. “Of course there are challenging times but God keeps blessing me with all these amazing opportunities each year so thankfully so we live good.
“With respect to the nature of my relationship with Maje…there is nothing to discuss really and there are some things I will not discuss out of respect for my son as he will grow older some day and may very well read these articles/stories. I’m not here to make bad for anyone, not even Maje, despite his absence from our son’s life “If that were the case, then I would have exposed the situation many years ago when he chose to abandon a lot of his responsibilities.
Instead, I chose to do what any responsible parent would do and continued to focus on my career. I transitioned from modeling internationally into full time radio and television” she said.
On Maje’s relationship with their son, she said;
“Maje contacted us on Saturday for Ajani’s birthday right after i made a post about it on Instagram. He is only now reaching out more because of the media attention. ”
