Maya Jama planning fashion empire as she trademarks her name for clothes, bags and perfume
MAYA Jama is planning a fashion empire as she trademarks her name for clothes, bags and perfume.
The TV presenter, 26, is well on her way to becoming a fashion mogul, The Sun can reveal.
Maya is branching out from radio and TV to pursue her passion for fashion and has already set up her own clothing and jewellery ranges.
A source told The Sun: “Maya is really into her beauty and takes good care of her skin.
"She struggled to find face masks that suited her so decided to work on her own.
“This is just the beginning, she’s got big dreams about releasing a range of products.”
The presenter has applied to trademark her own name in a wide range of classifications.
These include not just fashion, rings and necklaces, but also beauty products, candles, books, bags and podcasts.
Maya, whose ex boyfriend is Brit Award winning Stormzy, has enjoyed a meteoric rise to stardom after finding fame fronting shows on MTV and Radio One.
Last year, she launched her own skincare brand MIJ Masks, but it was just the start for Bristol-born Maya.
Maya is already seen as a fashion icon and has 2.1 million followers on Instagram.
But has designed a sell-out range for PrettyLittleThing and she says that her style is more casual, such as tracksuits and trainers, than it is to high-end fashion.
Maya told OK! Magazine that, at first, she feared waiting paparazzi outside the Radio 1 offices, but then stopped caring, saying: “When I first left the studio and saw the camera people, I was like, oh my God, say goodbye to tracksuits and no make-up days.
“But now I’m like, you know what? I’m here every Friday and Saturday, so you’re going to take me as I am.”
She added: “I’ve always been quite transparent with everything I’ve been through or whatever is going on in my life.
“That helps young girls to see a real image. I’m not perfect, I make mistakes, but I do work really hard. If you do that, you will get to where you want to be.”
The Sun revealed Maya was on her way to becoming the next Kylie Jenner after quitting her BBC Radio One show.
A pal said: “Maya is a shrewd businesswoman and is determined to make a name for herself in the cosmetics market.
“Her debut skincare range, MIJ, has been a runaway hit, with her face masks selling out in the first week, making her around £250,000 in seven days."
