Ben Simmons Girlfriend: Maya Jama
Maya Jama is a well-known TV presenter based in London, England. She was born on August 14, 1994 in Bristol, UK, to a Somali father and a Swedish mother. She was actually named after the famous poet, Maya Angelou. Although she had gone through a rather difficult upbringing with her father being in prison and out, Jama eventually moved to London in 2012 at the age of 18 to pursue a career first in theater and then eventually to television and as a model.
She really broke out for the first time when she hosted the Copa90 show called The cities of Maya for the FIFA World Cup, who documented the travels of various people throughout the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. Jama also co-hosted a series called World Cup Taxi ahead of the tournament. The same year, she joined MTV and became a regular on the channel, hosting various shows on the station.
In 2017, Jama hosted the pre-Brit Awards party and also became Channel 5’s youngest MOBO Awards host that same year. She has also appeared on several different shows on the ITV network in the UK. As you can see Jama is one of the fastest growing TV presenters in the UK and her fame has been skyrocketing for years.
Currently, she is a BBC One presenter on a show called “Peter Crouch: Save our Summer” with former footballer Crouch and Alex Horne. Earlier in 2021, the BBC also announced that Jama would host on “Glow Up: Britain’s Next Make-Up Star”. In February, she made an appearance in “RuPaul’s Drag Race UK”.
While Jama is certainly busy appearing on countless different TV networks across her homeland, she launched her own skincare brand called MIJ Masks last year. In addition to working on television, Jama has also been on BBC Radio, having hosted a show called #DriveWithMaya on Rinse FM from 2014 to 2017.
Okay so if you haven’t noticed Jama is a busy girl. It doesn’t end there, however. She is an ambassador for Adidas and Australian hair brand Aussie, while also owning clothing collections for JDSports and PrettyLittleThing. Her modeling resume is also impressive as she has appeared in commercials for Maybelline, Adidas, Gap and Kurt Geiger. Jama even won Best Dressed Star at the 2019 People’s Choice Awards. Talk about a fashion statement.
And now to Maya Jama’s dating story. She was in a long term relationship with British rapper Stormzy from 2015 to 2019. She even appeared in one of his music videos titled “Big for your boots” while he also featured the song “Birthday girl” to the occasion of his 22nd birthday. One of the main reasons the two broke up was to focus on their respective careers, according to the Mirror.
When it comes to social media, Jama is a star. She has 2.2 million followers on Instagram and 625,000 on Twitter. Considering how famous she is, it’s not much of a surprise. She also interacts with her fans on a regular basis, which is refreshing to see.
Simmons and Jama are said to have been dating for a few months now, but things became official when the duo were seen together in London at Wimbledon last week:

Simmons is also said to have faced Jama in the Sixers playoffs and they have even been seen at various restaurants recently together in London. She even spent time in Philly during the playoffs, according to at the Evening Standard UK.
As you can see, Simmons has only had lovely girlfriends. Jama is no exception. She’s a young and successful woman who is clearly still busy working in England with various outlets, but it’s good to see her take the time for another relationship. After all, this seems to be his only one since breaking up with Stormzy.
We don’t know what the future of Ben Simmons will be in Philly. After a rather poor performance on the big stage, there are plenty of rumors circulating that the Aussie may be leaving town. But, he is taking it upon himself to improve his shooting this offseason after retiring from the Tokyo Olympics with Team Australia.
Nonetheless, whatever happens with his future in the NBA, it’s clear that Simmons is winning the field with an absolutely stunning new girlfriend.
There you have it, that’s all you need to know about Ben Simmons’ girlfriend and TV celebrity, Maya Jama.
