In 2021, the comedian revealed she had a private wedding with her husband in Ghana.

She also announced her pregnancy with a baby pump video shared on her social media pages.

The 25-year-old gained fame on Instagram back in 2016, when a video of her making lip sync videos and miming songs was released by a friend of hers.


The video generated thousands of views across all social media platforms. The comedian effortlessly mimics numerous Nigerian peculiarities for humour.

She has since 2016 become a household name for her hilarious skits. In her comedy skits, Maraji switches between accents and vocal pitches to suit each character she plays.

The Edo state indigene holds a bachelor’s degree in International Relations from Covenant University.

In 2020, Maraji revealed how her ex-boyfriend dumped her for “no reason”.


In December 2021, the 25-year-old skit maker also opened up about her struggle with hemorrhoids since age 12 and her “secret” marriage.
