Sometimes I have to sleep on the sofa after a disagreement with Wahu! Nameless says

David Mathenge aka Nameless has one of the longest relationships/marriages among celebs in Kenya. He and his wife Wahu have been married for close to 15 years and have been dating for close to 20 years!

During their marriage, two have been blessed with two beautiful daughters and always look like they have the perfect couple to those who don’t know the complexities the institution faces.

Nameless appeared on MC Jessy’s YouTube page where he discussed how he and his wife had disagreements that would end up with him sleeping on the couch (American-style).

The singer revealed that he and Wahu also fought just like any other couple as marriage is not a bed of roses. “You know MC Jessy, let us tell people the truth. There are times I have slept on the couch and it really helps the marriage. At times you need to take time out,” said the singer.

The lanky musician also had some hilarious advice for young men wanting to get married saying that they should choose comfy sofas as they would come in handy if/when they have to sleep on it after a dispute with the wife.

“One thing I would like to tell men, they should be very keen while buying furniture for their house. Ensure that you buy sofas that you can use as a bed. When things get tough in the bedroom, you will need that seat not once or twice,” he added.

While this information might be frowned upon I see it as particularly valuable especially when someone looks at the marriage landscape at the moment. Many marriages of celebrities and even average people are devolving barely 5 years in.

Nameless’s solution points at the perseverance and temperance needed for a marriage to work, something that most newly-weds might not anticipate.

But with all the good things he has gained from being a father he also regrets not doing some things earlier. What may that be? Not having his two daughters Tumiso and Nyakio much earlier.

He said in an interview with Kiss

“One thing I wish I could have done is I think I should have had my kids earlier. Our kids change our lives so my much, and especially how you look at life. As I always say, there are things I see in my kids that explain so much about me. Like I look at my children and say, this is exactly me, and you begin to understand your strengths and weaknesses.”

Nameless is however confident about the skills he has instilled in his kids. He said:

“My mum always reminded me that my body is a temple of God and if you do not take care of your body, then it will affect many other aspects of your life. I always try and encourage them to keep trying and striving. Those are the principles I want to instill in my kids’ life, so that nikiwaacha, they will live a full life. A life where they touch people and they are genuinely happy, not necessarily rich but happy and successful.”
