Mr. Seed is happily married to cutey and mother of his son, Nimo Gachuiri. The singer who started out in the gospel music circles has been more in the news for his controversies than for his lyrical prowess.
Just recently, the artiste revealed that he had a huge crush on Wahu. Yep, you read that right! He admitted that while in primary school he had Wahu’s photos in his list of artists.
He hilarious confessed that the thing that hurt him the most was their wedding; which meant Wahu was no longer available.
Posting a picture with Nameless, Seed opened up on his Instagram saying;
”So I told @namelesskenya vile alioa @wahukagwi ilinihurt sana 😂😂 na imagine nilikuwa primary school.. nilikuwa na picha za wahu kwa kitabu yangu flani ya wasanii .. nilikuwa a very big fan wa @wahukagwi design niliskia kinyongo na hiyo wedding 😂😂 but anyways .. @namelesskenya nilishakusamehea.. you guys inspire me so much .. GOD BLESS FOREVER”
Nameless reacted without any ill-feeling saying,
”😂😂😂😂💪🏾💪🏾… Si ni life! Happy for you though bro! Hivo hivo 👊🏾”
What is interesting is that Mr. Seed isn’t the only well-known celeb who has spoken about his affections for Nameless’ spouse, Wahu.
State House big-wig, Thomas Kwaka aka Big Ted disclosed a few months ago that he actually met Wahu before she met Nameless and that he would have been “Mr. Wahu” had it not been for Nameless standing in his way.
The first episode of This Love features Thomas Kwaka aka Big Ted, who reveals that he actually met Wahu before she met Nameless and that he would have been “Mr. Wahu” had it not been for Nameless standing in his way.
This Love, musicians Nameless and Wahu’s new docu-reality series, is now streaming exclusively on Showmax, and it is loaded with some nostalgic moments and revelations.
Created and executive produced by Eugene Mbugua, This Love takes viewers into the lives of Nameless and Wahu, arguably Kenya’s most-admired celebrity couple, as they talk love, life and most of all, their shared passion for music that spans two decades.
While they were initially reluctant about the show when Mbugua first approached them with the idea in 2018, the couple finally agreed because they wanted to share what they had learnt during their 23 years together (and married for 15) which they’ve described as the “midlife” or “the first half of their lives.”
“We’ve been together for 23 years (and married for 15), and we’ve learnt a lot. we’ve gone through the ups and downs… you know how life is. that is what gave us the why, and we wanted to be authentic about this journey,” Nameless says.
With music playing a major part in their lives, Wahu reveals that viewers will also get a chance to see that side of them and how the process has been as they work on their first joint album together, also titled This Love.
“The other thing that we want to do in this docu-reality series, even as we share our story, is to also share our 20-year journey of being musicians. we want viewers to pick a lesson from us (if you’re able to), and there’s no better avenue than this love,” Wahu says.
In this episode, Nameless and Wahu take us back to how they first met by visiting their alma mater, the University of Nairobi.
In subsequent episodes, the 13-part series will also see Nameless and Wahu pay tribute to the late legendary rapper E-Sir, who was a close friend of Nameless.
The show will also see the couple revisit their famous wedding in 2005 and the elements that threatened to break them apart, as well as how they’ve managed to stay together, and so much more about their past and present, their family life and what it takes to finally make music together.
This Love is now streaming exclusively on Showmax, with new episodes releasing every Monday.
According to Wahu, Nameless was so romantic that he used to surprise her with her favourite cake, Black Forest regularly while they were still in campus.
That’s not all, the lanky singer would also go over to her hostel at 11.00 pm to deliver the gifts and of course, some love and laughter.
”Nameless used to make me laugh. He knew I love Black Forest cake. I remember I was in Chiromo. He used to come, he was in ADD but he said let me go and check Mah, its like 11.00 pm. He went somewhere and bought me cakes and flowers and come to my room all the time,” Wahu said.
The two who have been blessed with two daughters seem to be growing from strength to strength as the years go. This year the power couple released their first-ever collabo in the many years they have worked together.
The song aptly titled “Te Amo” was a hit with many of their fans showing that the veteran musicians still got what it takes to rule the chats.
David Mathenge alias Nameless has fallen victim to hackers.
This information was shared by his wife Wahu, who told his fans to disregard any post coming from Nameless’s account.
His account was hacked hours after the couple participated in a successful ‘HelpAyah’ campaign yesterday, that generated over a million shillings in three hours.
Wahu posted on her page;
NAMELESS INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT HAS BEEN HACKED.
We are working to resolve the issue but for now please disregard any posts coming from Nameless kenya account.
Nameless account has over one million followers.
Wahu had earlier on posted an appreciation post to all who took part in raising money for baby Ayah.
Yesterday’s fundraising session to help @little.ayah was such a huge success! through the beautiful music, mchongoano, and laughter, And in spite of our power blackout we managed to raise over 1.3m!

The two took a hiatus and left the country more than a decade ago, with many wondering what had happened to them? But after Christian’s death, interest in the group was re-ignited and Lovy decided to visit Kenya, something he said that he and his brother had purposed to do later this year.
Upon arriving in the country, the Prophet took to social media and revealed that it felt so good to be back home. ”It’s good to be home,’ he wrote.
In his memory, Lovy has kept the promise and has been traversing the country meeting old chums and pals. Some of the bigwigs that the musician turned pastor met included the likes of music giants Nameless and Wahu on Monday, whom he visited at their humble abode.
Nameless shared their sweet reunion on Instagram, with his caption reading, “Meanwhile was good to see @prophetlovy of longombaz today after Sooooo many years!! Was so good to remember the good old days of Ogopa tours and stage performance competition amongst the artists…hawa longombaz walikuwa wanasumbua kwa stage 😅😅😅.”
The singer who recently celebrated her 15th wedding anniversary was a candid interviewee, answering the first question I asked her about the book/books that had really helped her in her long marriage with Nameless?
She said that it was two books. 7 habits of highly effective people. 7 habits of highly effective families, the Bible and the power of a praying woman.”
Nameless who had himself praised, “7 habits of highly effective people” in the past convinced his wife to read it, “He preached it like it was the Bible,” she giggled.
“It’s a really good book. This book is about being effective in every area of your life. I drew a lot of parallels with the Bible. There is a lot of content that mirrors the teachings of Christ in 7 habits.” she explained.
And whose advice had really helped their marriage? Wahu stated that her older brother who was a motivational speaker was that person, saying;
“I can’t really say a couple. We have had friends that care and we’ve known them forever. They are good for bouncing off ideas. Of course, my brother who is a life coach. There are all these rules about not letting a family member be the person we go to but we told him to figure it out and deal with it. We told him that we liked him and that he should be balanced as he is my big brother.” she said as she laughed.
In a recent interview with Jalang’o, Wahu disclosed something that most people weren’t aware of and showed how deep her love for Nameless went.
”They were there but me I was in love… The thing about it is, what is that sponsor bringing to you? Money. Most likely you are not the only one. I normally tell girls, build for yourself. Whatever that guy is making, imagine you can also make it yourself.”
Nameless himself says that he first saw Wahu on TV while she was doing a commercial and fell in love with her. After then, they made a follow-up on each other through a mutual friend. Wahu is currently 40 years old while Nameless is 44.
Despite the lengths they have gone for each other, last week Nameless explained that their marriage had also encountered some issues contrary to the image that it was perfect.
He disclosed that they had even separated for a period of 3 days.
“We don’t call it separation, but I have moved out for a short just to have a break. We were fighting a lot and had a lot of issues, and you don’t know how to deal with that, so you just take a break. But it’s short then after sometimes, two, three days you are back in,” Nameless said.
That is something that musician and all-around piece of joy Wahu Kagwi is experiencing at the moment. The mother of two has been lambasted in some quarters this past month after claims emerged that she is back to singing secular music following the release of her new song ‘This Love Ya Wahu’.
She also dismissed claims that she had reverted to doing secular saying it doesn’t really bother her what people think.
“I’m still here with my Jesus. If people see the song and start assuming that I am back sliding, it’s okay. Anybody can think whatever, I don’t really care much but for me I’m all about creating positive content, happy content.
“I have seen people asking what is going on and I’m like you know what, I still love Jesus, I want to sing about love, sometimes I want to do worship, sometime I want to sing about love…. I mean I have been married for 15 years, wouldn’t it be wrong for me to sing about my journey?” she posed.
Nameless, who was also present during the interview, had this to say about how they make their relationship work with regards to faith.
“One thing I can say about marriage is people are different, their perspective in life is different. You can’t find someone who is exactly the same as you. I have realized the way you handle each other is also different with that consideration in mind.
“So I personally have a different understanding of how I view God and so does she depending on how she is brought up. We often debate about it because we have to find a middle ground and understand why the other person views life as they do,” he concluded.
In the post which featured a stunning photoshoot, the singer had a caption saying deep down that Wahu knows she fell for someone special, writing in Kiswahili, “Hapendangi ku-admit lakini deep down anajua aliangukia. Ni hako ka-pride ya Kiambu-galchild inamsumbuanga. Lakini nampenda tu na hizi “sitishiki” zake (sic).”
And Wahu proved at least one part of his post was right responding by saying that she had rolled her eyes numerous times to refute those claims. “Lol babe, if I could roll my eyes any more I’d do a somersault,” Wahu hilariously replied.
Meanwhile, Nameless was also promoting the upcoming Xmas at Paradise concert that he and his wife will be performing on December 25th.
What defines a marriage? What is a life partner? For me now I redefine it as having a life partner you go through life with and not an overly romanticised version of marriages. That is what makes modern marriages struggle.
The biggest one according to him was the different worldviews that he and his wife had that he wasn’t aware of before the pandemic forced them to be together for great periods of time.
We are trying to align our worldviews. That is something that causes issues in relationships that people don’t realise. We have started reflecting. Being together has forced us to learn and unlearn things. One thing I realised is that we are normally set up to fail in life, in that society gives you rules and the wrong tools to succeed.
Adding, “They tell you how you should do, how you should believe, when you should get married, how you should raise your kids. All these things with the wrong tool and you end up struggling in life. That’s when you take a step back and re-evaluate all the rules and tools that you were given, to see if you can get better ones.”
The “Sunshine” singer explained that he was also learning how to see the beauty in the differences he and his wife shared. “I am also learning that there are strengths to our weaknesses and how am I benefiting from the difference instead of it causing conflict. That has been growth on our part and we want to work more and more together.”
Nameless told me that through his meditation and reevaluations had made him have a more cooperate view of family telling me;
You kind of have to look at your family like a company and you have to go through a reflection of what you believe is success. One person might think success is happiness while another might think that it is money. If you have different views of it then you will be clashing.
His focus was the success a couple can have when they work with synergy combining all their values and talents towards one goal.
How does a couple then look at what their joint belief system is? That’s when you borrow each other’s energy as a team and get something that both of you can successfully work at. I don’t think we went through that process in the beginning.
He told me that like most Kenyans his income had been affected by the virus.
It has been rough because one of my main income streams was cut off without any plan. Obviously, I earn a lot from doing live shows and performances and that was one of my main revenue streams. It came without warning and that definitely affected me.
And that had forced him to get out of his safe space.
But also it has forced me to get out of my comfort zone. There are many other things that I am exploring among my interests that I can’t talk about now. It has definitely made me see things differently also and get out of my comfort zone.
There are things I wanted to do that I had been pushing but now I am forced to do them. That some things have been halted I have had to get into them. That has been a blessing in disguise. Also staying at home with my wife and kids has made us connect on higher levels. Like many people, I am looking at things very differently.
“It has been a rough year. There has been a lot of learning and unlearning this year. I look at myself as a creative. I am looking at relationships differently. I have been moving from passion to purpose like thinking about what more to do? I have been doing a lot of introspection. Don’t forget that I am bang in the middle of life. It’s half-time for me. Not just be driven by my passion for music but what can I do that is more lasting and impactful. In short, my legacy.”
Legendary singer David Mathenge alias Nameless is one man whose experience in the Kenyan music industry cannot be frowned upon.
Over 20 years in the game, the singer has done well for himself both professionally and in his personal life. In the home front, he has been blessed with a lovely wife in Wahu and two wonderful daughters.
Nameless warned young girls about dating men with six-packs, saying that they had no money and that they should date men with a one-pack(kitambi) instead.
“One-pack ninjaz are you there? Galchild do not be fooled by young men with six-packs, they do not have money. All their savings go to the gym and on diet. Get yourself a one pack ninja,” wrote Nameless.
Is his advice sound? I think it is but with a caveat as there are no absolutes in the sexual marketplace. There are men with 6-packs and jacked bodies who have money. Look at Bien of Sauti Sol, Savara of Sauti Sol, John Allan Namu and even the richest man in the world Jeff Bezos who all have money.
The thing that Nameless should be worried about is the old adage of, “No man hits the gym to just sleep with one woman.”
There is a reason many wives cheat on their husbands with their gym trainers. Simply put, many of these men with the great bodies are heartbreakers ala’ Diamond Platnumz, they don’t have just one woman, they have a harem. They are the consummate f*ckboys.
