Love Island star reveals he knew Maya Jama before show - and is friends with Stormzy

Omar Nyame and Tiffany Leighton ’s time on Love Island came to a dramatic end when they were dumped by their fellow Islanders.

They spoke exclusively on OK!’s Love Island Dumping Debrief about their time and Omar revealed he knew Love Island host Maya Jama before the show and opened up on his close relationship with her other half Stormzy.

“Yeah, I have known Stormzy for years,” he said. “He’s always been like a big brother to me and a role model. We’ve got a good relationship.”

Omar entered the villa as a bombshell with his eyes set on Mimii Ngulube, who was coupled up with Ayo Odukoya, before getting into a heated argument over Grace Jackson, with Joey Essex.

He was set to spice things up in the villa. The 25 year old PE teacher from Croydon, who was by the rapper's side during his headline performance at Glastonbury in 2019, had hoped to find love on the show.

After his picture on Stormzy’s private jet went viral, Omar and Stormzy were also seen at Glastonbury this year, living their best lives.

When asked about Maya’s relationship with Stormzy, Omar sweetly called them each other’s “other half.”

He said: “They are madly in love. That’s his other half; that’s her other half. They are a power couple.”

A power couple indeed as the pair sent fans wild after Maya posted what looked like engagement pictures after they the loved-up pair were attending Paris Fashion Week together, where they made a rare red carpet appearance at the Louis Vuitton menswear show with fans commenting, “Telling my kids this was the king and queen of the UK.”

The pair were also recently spotted at Glastonbury soaking up the vibes and packing on the PDA.

Maya and her beau, who rekindled their romance last year, seemed smitten as they enjoyed D-Block Europe's set from a prime spot. Stormzy, 30, was clearly in a romantic mood, donning heart-shaped sunglasses.

The rapper was decked out in a striking Valentino ensemble, complete with a white-and-red raincoat, matching trousers, and a trendy bucket hat.

Speculation about the couple's relationship status reached fever pitch when Maya uploaded several affectionate snaps. One particularly intimate black and white photo showed the pair close together, sparking rumours of an engagement.

Maya confirmed she was back with Stormzy in August last year, four years after they initially split.

The pair made their relationship public during a trip to Hydra Island in Greece, their first public appearance together in quite some time. A source told The Sun at the time: "Stormzy is really open about wanting to settle down and have kids one day and he knows Maya is 'The One'."
