Haji’s Mum his biggest Fan
Winning awards is usually an incredible feeling, but it becomes special when your biggest Fan is in attendance. For Haji, his mother, Maimuna Jammeh, is his number one supporter.

“We are all excited that Haji won the best player of last season. I never doubted his talent and capabilities. For me, I make sure whatever he needs, I provide for him. I watched all his matches last Naweetan; I supported, cheered, and encouraged him whenever he was on the pitch; when he turned back and saw me in the crowd, that was motivation. I believe my son Haji will be the one who will help my family when he signs a professional contract,” Her mother said of Haji.
Despite supporting her son Haji, Mai Jammeh is still an active basketball player.
” I am a big sports fan, still an active basketball player, and married. I like sports; that’s why I am doing everything to support my son,” Haji’s Mum said.
