It came as a shock when the former it-couple Stormzy and Maya Jama announced their split in August 2019. This is why fans were so excited to see the pair together on Wednesday night at the GQ Men of the Year 2022 celebration in London.
The pair split in August 2019 after a four year long relationship, which quickly lead to rumours that Stormzy had cheated on Maya – which were denied.
In an interview on Charlamagne tha God's YouTube channel in January 2020, the grime artist was asked directly if he had been unfaithful to Maya.
Stormzy answered: "Do you know what? I actually didn't cheat. I swear to God, I didn't cheat.
"So we had broken up and I was out publicly being a rapper, being very inconsiderate to the fact that I've just come out of the most public relationship."
In another interview with Louis Theroux, Stormzy has compared losing his ex-girlfriend Maya Jama to "actual death.” The rapper reminisced on the successes in his career but explained his break-up in 2020 led him to remove himself from social media.
Stomzy said: "My break-up, that was probably the biggest catalyst for growth as a man. I was like: 'Ok, you've made a mistake, and you [lost] someone you love, someone you cared for, someone that is special to you.
“That's probably the biggest loss a man can have. Away from someone passing away, away from actual death, that's the biggest loss you can have."
While he didn’t go into the reasoning behind the split, Stormzy has admitted he didn’t appreciate his former partner at the time.
"There were other things in terms of mistakes I’d made," he admitted. "I didn’t do what a man should do to fully appreciate, love and care for his woman."
He also added that he had learned from his mistakes and would be a better partner if love came around again.
He revealed to Louis Theroux that he wants marriage and to settle down with a family of his own, but admitted that looking for love was not an easy task as he has to keep things under the radar so as not to ‘blow up’ a potential girlfriend’s life.
Stormzy concluded: "I’m still trying to work out the solution. I’ll just wait for God to present me with my situation with my woman."
Shortly after their breakup, Stormzy released his song Lessons which mentioned Maya by name.
He rapped: “Fast forward now, my nephew’s still asking for his Auntie Maya, guess this is the karma for what I done to Maya.
"I just stood and let it burn, I couldn’t down the fire. Lord, I pray you make it easy, that’s my one desire.”
Stormzy also just released he music video for his song Hide and Seek which makes fans wonder if it's also about Maya.
Fans did a double-take when they saw his love interest in his epic new track Hide and Seek, which looks a lot like Maya.
With lyrics including: "Need time for yourself, you gotta heal," fans are convinced it it about Maya after their split was plagued with a cheating allegation which ended up not being true.
As GQ’s next cover star, he recently gave the magazine a rare insight into his usually private life and shared details on the relationship that hit headlines.
Stormzy revealed: "I’d never experienced a breakup and the feelings that come with a breakup. And I never wanted to ever be in a position again where I felt what I was feeling.
"Because it showed me that I was a boy. And I do not want to go any further as a boy.
"I’ve seen how that manifests in other people. And I don’t want to be like that."
Despite their breakup, both Stormzy and Maya have revealed that they remain good friends after their breakup.
