Singer, David Mathenge popularly known as Nameless, has been in a celebratory mood for the better part of the week after his darling daughter, Tumiso emerged victorious in an Essay writing competition.
Tumiso Mathenge who was awarded a trophy and a ksh,20,000 cash prize, won the competition which was on combating desertification that was sponsored by the Environment ministry and Netfund.
Her win came after her mummy, Wahu Kagwi won a groove award for the music video of the year for her gospel song, Nifanane nawe.
This was followed by Nyakio (His last born) great school presentation using recycled material.
For all this, Nameless took to his social media to announce that as a proud husband and dad he offered to treat his family and they all settled for a holiday in Mombasa.
I am a very proud Dad right now 😊😊. Tumiso just won third prize for her artistic entry on environmental conservation… She received a trophy and a ka 20K Bana!! Her first paycheck yoooo🙏🏾💪🏾💯… Lakini juu Hana Bank account ama ID, itabidii waandike the real cheque Kwa Jina yangu😂😂😂… Ama namna gana my friend😎😎. So now that my gals have been winning this past few weeks, from mama watoto’s groove award win, to Nyakio’s great school presentation using recycled material (Hiyo time alinitupa under the bus) and now Tumiso great environmental win, nimewauliza wanataka tufanye nini kucelebrate these wins, wamesema niwapeleke Mombasa holiday. Haya basi Mombasa twasija
In Mombasa the family of four was not playing and took every chance to soak up the coastal sun at the beach.
The stylish pastor Robert Burale is a single dad and he is not ashamed of that fact. He has his daughter to share all the love and affection.
Burale, who got divorced from his wife six years ago, is a role model as to what fathers should be in an age where deadbeat dads are the order of the day.
Even though Burale did not lose his wife, he is still doing a good job and it is worth commending.
3. George Ikua
When the late Janet Kanini Ikua lost her life after a brave battle with cancer, the world came tumbling down for her hubby George Ikua and since then he has had to adjust by bringing up his kids on his own.
He is a brave man who is still mourning his departed wife but still taking care of his kids as a single man only with the help of relatives and close friends.
4. Dan Sonko
Dan lost his wife to complications after delivery, leaving behind a son who never got to know his mum. Dan Sonko, who is based in Mombasa, has taken charge of bringing up his two sons and he is doing so well.
His young son is now all grown up and their late mum Dru Sonko would be so proud to see how much of a good job her husband has done.
They say that the love between a mother and her children is undefinable and unbreakable. Wahu has just confirmed that through a heartfelt composition that her daughter wrote while she was 8-years-old.
Wahu is a blessed mum to two adorable little girls together with her husband, Nameless. She recently shared a photo of her daughters composition about her mother and we fell in love with it.
“#TBT 😭😭 tumiso’s essay when she was 8 years old 😭😭
S/O to all the mums! We are doing the best we can! More power to us!”
Tumiso is the one who inspired the hit song by wahu ‘Sweet love’ that was bout her daughter. Nameless and the wife have been together for more than a decade and they definitely inspire us. Well, time flies. Just the other day when they got married and are now blessed with two babies. for sure they are aging gracefully.
Wahu recently switched from secular to gospel music. She has not stopped her music career, she continues to minister using her music. Well, we can say she is doing well in the gospel music industry so far.
While some celebs were just indoors, others opted to surprise their better halves. Nameless surprised his wife Wahu with a beautiful package as he attended the men’s conference.
‘He used to call me whinny Wahu…. Becoz he thought I whined a lot (I didn’t😁😁 ) I used to call him moody Monski, because…Well mostly because he was just a moody dude! 😁😁 I love you babe. I have for the last 20 odd years. (Where did the time go!!) Thank you for the roses and chocolates! See you later on! Ama bado uko men’s conference? 😁😁😁 #trulymyrideordie.”
Tanasha Donna on the other hand received a surprise package from Diamond Platnumz while still at work and it got her emotional.
The two bigwigs in the Kenyan music industry produced ‘short and sweet’ single that will live long. They recently released their new collaborative song called ‘Tujiangalie‘
2.Wyre and Nazizi
Back in the day when they were still Necessary Noize they rocked with their music and decided later their music is still dope.
Apart from being a band they are a duo that are legendary and they are so united when it comes to making music together. They have singles like Kenyan boy Kenyan girl, Bless my room and So Ruff among others.
Hip hop legend Juacali from Calif Records joined forces with former member of group SEMA and actress Sanaipei Tande to give us good music and romantic ones in that case.
The two are behind the songs ‘Kwaheri’ and ‘Geti kali’
4.Amani and Nameless
The two are legends in Kenyan music and across East Africa. Nameless and Amani did a song together that is called ‘Ninanoki’ in the early 2000’s. The ‘Ninanoki’ song is a timeless song that is still a club banger today.
The legend Nonini discovered the celebrated music group P. Unit and they did ‘si lazima’ song then they later did ‘Hapa Kule’ and ‘Kushoto Kulia’.
The songs are still hits till today. If they could collaborate again together it would be nice for their fans.
Willy Paul and Size 8
Gospel singers Willy Paul and Size 8 did their first collaboration together with the song ‘tam tam’ which was a love gospel song encouraging people to be in love, how to build a long lasting relationship and how to choose the right partner for marriage.
They did another song together called ‘Sijafika’ which they included gospel artist Gloria Muliro and Kambua.
In Kenya, not many Dads show off their children or family on social media. Some even prefer to keep that part of their life private.
However, these are some of the Kenyan celebrity fathers who don’t mind showing off their family and giving advice to their followers and with the look of things, fatherhood is going quite well with them.
Some of them include,
1. Timothy Kimani aka blessed Njugush and baby Tugi
2. Nameless and his baby girls, Tumiso and Kio

Nameless had earlier on told Word Is that he is ready to be a dad again although he was coy to say if Wahu was pregnant.
“Siwezi mind a boy now that I have two girls, but we are still under discussions,” he said.
Wahu also revealed that she is under pressure from friends to get a baby.
“It will be nice to be pregnant but I am not. It will be a nice blessing however not sure if I want that blessing. Everyone is telling me they want a baby but you know, I am the carrier and therefore I have to wait and see because I am not sure if I want it,” she added.
Gospel musician Wahu Kagwi was at one time angry with the church and stayed away from God.
Wahu was a popular secular artiste before switching to gospel.
In an interview with Classic 105, she said;
“My regret is that I stayed away from God because I did feel I was angry with the church and I let that overtake my relationship with Christ. In terms of my journey, I have no regret. I knew it was God and even the award that I won, I could feel it was God’s doing.
“I regret most living away from Christ and I have even told God about it. The reason I am saying that is because there are secular artistes who have a very tight relationship with God and that is their journey.”
She has released a gospel hit that’s been well received by fans. The support for her gospel songs seems to be greater than her secular music.
“I’m grateful for the reception and there has been a lot of positive comment since I made my announcement that I was changing to gospel. I received a lot of support from the church and the gospel circle so I’m overwhelmed because the non-gospel artistes are also really supporting me which speaks a lot.”
Wahu says her secular songs were never explicit. “I was true to doing my singing, even as a secular artiste, and I don’t regret having done secular music because it was part of my journey.
“Even then, I did back-up music for gospel artistes although at the time, I felt there was a bit of a [lack of] authenticity because I could see some church leaders preaching wine and drinking water.
“I did see God’s favour because most of the things I achieved then were through His grace.
I did not write bad music because most were all about women empowerment and the like.”
Wahu is currently promoting her new song Nifanane Nawe.
“The song reminds people of the virtues that Christ has so they can also emulate [them]. I desire to be more like Christ,”
“Gun sijafikiria kabisa but I am still debating on whether to buy one or not,I am feeling the pressure though. I have created room for communication with my kids such that we can talk about anything and everything.
Even when I am creating my music, I have to involve them so that I will know they are comfortable with whatever I am creating. Sometimes she comes home and she is like’dad there is this guy I like ‘ and that’s how open our conversations are.”
Nameless is a father of two with his first born being 12 and the youngest being 5.
Celebrating his eldest daughter birthday he penned her this beautiful message
“My 1st princess turns 12 today!! Tumiso, You are beautiful, intelligent, fun living, kind hearted and hardworking.. You are an outstanding big sister and lovely daughter.!!

On working with Nameless, Atemi says that as she was writing the lyrics Nameless is the only artiste who came to mind.
“As I wrote the lyrics he is the only one who came to mind, so I tabled my proposal and luckily he accepted.”
“When I looked at the proposal I accepted, when the idea was sent to me and after I listened to the lyrics I realized that I liked it. The beauty of this song is that it is something worth taking about and worth listening to.”
