N’Kyah apple of Kyle’s eyes

Kyle Mayers has achieved many things in his lifetime. But to date, his greatest achievement remains his five-year-old daughter N’Kyah Mayers.

Kyle and his then girlfriend Nykita Layne had a baby when he was just 21 years old. She was not planned, but she was a blessing.

“I was very young then and not ready but I was very thankful. I can’t even explain the feeling. She is an amazing little girl, very intelligent and brings so much joy to my life,” he said.

But as life would have it, life didn’t go as planned after that.

Kyle, now 26, and Nykita broke up, and as a professional cricketer, his job took him away from the island often, which meant he couldn’t play as big a role in his daughter’s life as he would like.

“Her mum does a brilliant job in terms of her discipline and her attitude towards her schoolwork. For me even though I’m away often, I try to talk to her as much as I can and I really do want that I can to instil certain things in her. I just want for her to understand life. I think I can cover that part. I just want for her to understand how to manoeuvre certain situations in the world, how to talk to people and react to certain situations,” he explained.

For the last two and a half years, Kyle has been away playing franchise cricket in the Windward Islands. While he was making money and able to provide for his family back home, he said it was a bittersweet experience for him.
