Singer Nameless has emphasized that his marriage with his college sweetheart is built on a strong foundation.
In a recent post, the father of two responded to fans who said he would not be anything without Wahu.
The fans comment came after Wahu shared a throwback photo of them during their college days.
She captioned the post;
“Me and my campus boyfriend. only Jesus Christ and my big sister knew how much I loved this boy!”
The post elicited mixed reaction from fans with many praising the couple for standing by each other.
Here is what the fan wrote;
“Imagine no man can leave a woman if he knows she can do better without them. Its all starts with us not setting boundaries and worshiping them. Mathenge knows without Wahu, he is finished and she will do just fine without him.”
Nameless said it was very wrong for any fan to bring such an an analysis of their relationship.
“I choose to reply to you because I feel it is very unhealthy to promote such thoughts that people can be nothing without each other,” he wrote.
The father of two added thet they are together because they choose to be together, not because they are fearing being apart.
“That is something we decided early in our marriage. We decided that we have a choice and together or apart we would be fine … nobody will die. But we choose to be together because we have identified the value of our partnership in our individual journey,” he said.
Nameless discouraged people to promote the argument that a man is nothing without a woman or a woman in nothing without a man.
“That’s why many people are killing themselves or are killing their spouses, because of such thinking. We should promote, We are ok apart but can be better together,” he wrote.
He encouraged couples to learn how to accommodate each others strengths and weaknesses and have the humility to learn and grow in the relationship.
Wahu and Nameless has been together for over 15 years.
Legendary star Nameless real name David Mathenge says his late best friend E-Sir moved seats before dying in an accident.
“My brother E-sir I always feel like I have a bro the story behind (his death) is he moved me from the two seats where I would have died. He is the one who moved me without even knowing he was telling me ‘No let’s sit here.’ I always feel like I have an obligation and a purpose to keep telling and I always ask myself why did God do that,”Nameless said.
He urged young artists to emulate the late singer, who was very talented, very hard working but also very humble.
“Humble means you are open to hearing other things, you don’t feel like you know everything and that’s what made him grow so fast because he’d learn very fast. That’s something I always like to teach young artists. They come with the confidence that they have talent but also come with the humility that they can learn a lot more and become better,”he said.
Nameless also shared how he is getting used to being jobless, having not been employed for 24 years.
Nameless explained how he gets disoriented sometimes, not knowing what time it is because he was used to waking up at 4 AM and planning his day based on that.
At the event, Jalang’o also shared his experience of being jobless, “I’m trying to get used to being jobless. For the first time in 15 years, I am waking up and not going to the studio for the breakfast show,”he said.
Jaguar admitted that he hated Nameless and Redsan for being successful.
Speaking to Willy M Tuva, Jaguar said it was not easy for him to become successful in the music industry.
He said although he has over 50 songs, only a few are hits. He got his shot at fame and success, with Kigeugeu being his biggest hit.
He recounted a time he went for a US tour with big artistes and ended up looking for a sweeping job instead.
“On my second trip, Nameless and Kleptomaniax were touring, so I could not get shows. So instead, I worked as a sweeper in Maryland. I used to work for 18 hours and saved the money. That is how I made my first million.”
Jaguar said many of his friends started rumours after seeing his success.
“They said I sold drugs and had a sugar mummy. So I wrote Kigeugeu for friends who turned against me. I thank those who hated me because if not for them, I would not have released the hit,” he said.
Jaguar also thanked former Prime Minster Raila Odinga for supporting his music.
“I remember Raila went to an interview and said that Kigeugeu was his favourite song and that song was loved by people after that.”
Legendary singer Nameless, Trio Mio, Nelly the Goon, Habib, and DMore. have released a tribute song to the late Esir. The video of the song ‘Bandana Ya Esir’ stars Wahu, Wyre, Jua Cali, and Nyashinski. Rapper King Kaka is said to have designed the bandana used in the music video.
Speaking about the song, Nameless said,
“This project we are about to release is very close to my heart.We celebrate our brother ESIR with a CROSS-GENERATION of artists! Some Veterans made a cameo to show LOVE for our fallen friend,”
On Nameless and Wahu’s reality show, Nelly The Goon said that he had been working on the tribute song for two years now.
“I have written this song for like two years. I needed to do this for a legend that has done it for the music, he inspired me so much, he needs to be taken as the legend he is.” He said.
An excited Wahu, who had accompanied her husband, added, “It is an interesting song because it bigs up E-Sir and I like that idea.”
E-Sir, born Issah Mmari, died on March 16, 2003, in an accident along the Nairobi-Nakuru highway on his way back to Nairobi from a concert in Nakuru. He was accompanied by his colleague and best friend Nameless.
Another fan suggested that they should keep their life private.
”When your life was private, there was none of this, but because now you are in the limelight all the time expect more than this. I am not saying it is bad, but I liked you guys on the private side. Hii side ya public matope ni Mungu, expect more noise.”
Nameless revealed that they need to be seen more often as they are working on an album.
”We are releasing an album we must be seen. A bit more than before. It was expected and we fully understand human beings will have strong opinions. Ni life.”
Nameless said Wahu had become dramatic and would avoid talking to him.
He visited her in her room while in college. She went to take a shower and Nameless stumbled on her diary.
“I was so tempted to read it. I found out what was troubling her. I found a place she was talking about how she has been struggling because she believed in one thing and the guy she likes is not on the same page as her.”
Nameless added that he was fine to find out that Wahu was struggling with something she believed in and not a man.
“I was competing with Jesus and not any other man in her life.”
At that point, Wahu told him it was over and it was such a sad moment coz Nameless sat there for long, thinking, and he wrote on her journal.
“I don’t understand why you think I am not good enough for you. And he left.”
This photo always puts a smile on my face 😄😄. It was taken by my dad when he’d come to visit me in my campo room. Then my boyfriend, who I’d been dating for less than a year.
Comes to visit me. Heh! Alitense!!! 😂😂😂😂. He wanted to remove his headgear to show respect but angetoa mbuyu angeona his budding dreadlocks 😂😂😂😂😂 and the way when their small they look sijui how 😂😂😂😂.
My ol man, may he rest in peace, knew that the young man was nervous…he saw a camera on my desk and asked “can I take a pic of you guys”? My boyfriend wasn’t sure how to hold me…. 😂😂😂😂 And the way I’d placed myself there so that he can hold my waist 😂😂😂😂😂. But aliona afadhali ashike shingo 😂😂😂😂.
Heh! Moral of the story, take lots of pictures as you move along life… Zitakufurahisha one day!
Nameless and Wahu are among the best Kenyan couple goals. They have been together for over 15 years with less drama.
Despite all the glow of their marriage, the couple experience some challenges like any other.
Speaking out of experience, Nameless took his time to advise fellow men to always be ready to sleep on the coach.
He said that it is very normal to do so.
“Wanaume mimi huwaambia ukiweza, Nunua sofa inaweza kuwa kitanda safi na TV clear ya kucheki movie. utakuwa tu sawa kwa hii maneno ya ndoa🤦🏾♂️…. Sleeping on the couch ni kawa😅.. Make it comfortable😜😊… #RelationshipStarterPack.”
In a recent interview with MC Jessy on Youtube, the father of two said marriage is not easy and he has been forced to sleep on the sofa after arguments.
He said that a couple of times he has had to sleep on the sofa for peace to prevail in his bedroom.
According to him, marriages are not easy and fights will be there and the parties will need to be sane.
“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,” he said.
He went on to advise young men who will be soon getting into marriage to be very keen while buying their furniture and ensure that they buy comfortable sofas for they probably will spend the night there when things get heated in the bedroom.
“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 bad. When things get tough in the bedroom, you will need that seat not once or twice,” he added.
Did you know that Wahu was once a model, yes she started her career as a fashion model.
This was when she was a student at the University of Nairobi pursuing a degree in Mathematics.
Wahu landed modelling gigs which helped her finance her campus education.
Well, her husband Nameless posted a throwback photo on Sunday and revealed that despite looking broke, he was dating a miss University.
“By the way nilikuwa na-date miss university time hii.. msidharau look,🧐 … nilikuwa na mistari wewe😎… Banaa.. just focus on the fact that I have come a long way.🧐… Anyway that’s not the point. The point is, I am still updating my sheng during this quarantine… Soooo the sheng word for the day is “Genje” which means good quality. So if I can use it in a sentence “huyu kijana alikuwa na lips Genje 😎.” 😂 Ama🤷🏾♂️…sawa, if you have a sheng word I should update tafadhali put it in a sentence ndio nielewe.
The Mega rider hitmaker took to social media to reveal that his youngest daughter, Nyakio, was ‘tired of her family’.
Fans made fun of how Nameless looked then saying that he seems to have been broke.
In one of the comments, a fan said;
“Hizo lips Wahu angekubali,”
In which Nameless responded;
“Nilimpiga busu moja na hizo lips akaingia box.”
The music legends met in 1998 when their friend Neto introduced them to each other, Wahu revealed in a past interview.
“We were young and carefree. We didn’t do very complicated things; we really just enjoyed each other’s company, no matter the setting.” Dates were simple. They’d go on picnics, camp, watch movies and club.
The two have two daughters, Tumiso (13) and Nyakio (6).
“They are both uniquely special. Tumi, for example, is so empathetic towards other people’s needs and feelings and is such a strong wildlife enthusiast. Nyakio is very organised and loves cleanliness. She is also and quite the charmer. They are both such a joy,” explained Wahu.
“Happy birthday to me. When I look over my shoulder, I see evidence of his hand of mercy and favor. And so I know that even as I enter a new year, He will continue to be with me.
Thank you Father for the love life, health, the gift of family and friends.
Thank you my online, family for always showing me love.
‘I’m officially 21. I’ve been 18 for too long,” she said.

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😎😎.

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.

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.
