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.
They are not ranked in any order, here is our list of female Kenyan celebrities who are over 30-years-old, but look like they are barely 20.
From Julie Gichuru to Wahu they prove that age is just but a number.
Yvonne Okwara Matole
While some women would shy away from revealing their age, Yvonne Okwara is not afraid to let everyone know how old she is. Yvonne a senior anchor and editor is 35-years-old yet she does not look anything like above 30.
She makes curves look so good,she is the epitome of aging like fine wine,despite the fact that she is past her 30’s she could easily be mistaken for a 25 year old.
Julie Gichuru is proving everyday that age is nothing but a number. The gorgeous beauty is one of the female veterinary news anchors, and recently celebrated her birthday declaring she is 44.
Pierra Makena always graces our television sets, she is an actress, DJ and TV show host. She is 35 years if you were to guess her age, you would think she is much younger.
The mother of one received so many hateful messages after she gave birth to her daughter, with many attacking her for her weight but she didn’t let that put her down and gave a stern clapback to all her haters.
Daughter to veteran politician and the governor of Kisumu city Anyang Nyong’o, Lupita is an oscar award winner who does not look anything like her real age which.
If you were to guess her age you would pass her off as to be on her late 20’s. Lupita is 35 years and aging gracefully.
Wahu Kagwi Mathenge
Wahu is a legendary Kenyan female artist who is married to a fellow artist David Mathenge better known as Nameless a legend too in the Kenyan music industry. Wahu has two kids with her husband Nameless. Wahu is 37 years.

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.
Big Ted has opened up on how he once misjudged a prostitute after seeing her praising and praying in church.
This change in perception was occasioned by gospel artiste Wahu, who changed how he perceived people.
“Many years ago..my ‘sister’@wahukagwi was invited to perform in town..she took me to a certain night church that was held in the CBD it was Nairobi Friday night the atmosphere was totally charged & electric. loud Afro music from the club next door and a cocophony of others filled the air..the town full of energetic Nairobians looking for a good time on the town…The church was dimly lit with coloured stage lights bouncing off the walls an amazing band & worship team led by one of best male vocalists I know…
The twist was that the church was established & targeted mainly at twilight girls…i love worship and as the Praise part ended my ‘bible school attended church going self-righteous -ego stood up and announced myself to every eye that could see through the dark…See I felt I was the best placed RIGHTEOUS guy in the room to worship God..I felt that THESE other guys in the room had NO business lifting their hands to praise God intact I reasoned that I knew who they are, I know what work they do..i mean some of them were actually in their work clothes..”
“I stood their in disgust assuming the role of God the father..a young girl deep on her knees caught my eyes..her hands held out, tears rolling down her cheeks & in active conversation with ‘Her’ God..that right there changed my heart..I mean What was she telling the HOLY ONE.. was He even listening, Will God answer her? I mean I had already JUDGED & DISMISED her & everyone else based on my position YET I also probably engaged in every aspect of the same only now without PAY..
‘I am back fearless ,stronger with fresh lessons ‘Brags quack rapist doctor Mugo Wa Wairimu LISTEN you judge someone not when you assess their position, but when you dismiss them as a person..you have to love the person more than you love your position on that particular issue and It’s what you do after you tell someone the truth that matters..it’s easy to Judge some1 because U sin differently..Jesus told us the harsh truth about our sin BUT he still brought us in close. and made us, even as sinners, his friends..that even with YOUR DIRTY & FILTHY self YOU can still approach the throne of grace with Confidence so that you may find GRACE & obtain MERCY in your time of need Heb 4:16 READ MY BLOG teamd2d.wordpress.com #GodwinsAgain”

It’s been 13 years since David Mathenge alias Nameless and Wahu tied the knot and the father of two has released a song just to celebrate his wife.
Dubbed ‘I am good’ the song is a confession from Nameless on the fact that even if everything was taken away from his life, he would still be good because he still has his girls – Wahu,Tumiso and Nyakio.
The lyrics of the song are so captivating that they would make even the coldest of hearts melt. Below is Mathenge’s message as he released the song.
“On September 10 2005 I married the love of my life.13 years and two beautiful children later, I celebrate this anniversary with this song, as a special dedication to my wife and kids! Through the ups and downs we’ve been through, AM GOOD as long as I’ve got you!”
“Even if they take all my money from my pockets take all my clothes from the closet, take my TV, radio and computer from the socket. Even if they threw me out of my house and lock it.
Even if they break me down and throw me on the highway.Took all my days and left me not even Monday. Even if they left me down and hungry. Even if they took my house, bling, money, cars
I am good, I am good as long as I’ve got you
Every man needs a woman like you, a woman that’s real and a woman that’s true, the strength of a lioness and the beauty of a rose, who stands by him in the highs and the lows.
Hata wakiniwekelea na kunifungia jela ama kunifuta kazi na kunikazia hela,hata kama wananikazia na kunipatia presha even if they took my money, house, cars,dreams, my jeans, my bling and my everything.
I am good as long as I have got You, I am good as long as you got me, I am good better than you ever knew as long as I am with you.”

Fathers day is a celebration honoring fathers and celebrating fatherhood, paternal bonds, and the influence of fathers in society and in line with that we are looking at a number of Kenyan celebrities and their loving dads, who are normally the unsung heroes in the society.
While most wait till they are in dire need of medical assistance or when they are deceased, a few Kenyan celebrities have never shied from celebrating their father figures both on and off social media, with others preferring to show off their mothers.
Below are a number of Kenyan celebrities who have introduced us to their loving fathers and who stand by them through thick and thin.
Celebrated singer Kambua Mathu lost her father almost four years ago but that has never stopped her from celebrating and honoring him.
Kambua’s father Professor Manundu who used to host a health show on NTV passed away in 2014.
One of her posts reads, I think of you often. Everyday. Sometimes with tears but more with a smile. I will never forget the day your heart stopped beating and mine continued to beat. I wanted mine to stop too. I felt like it did. But God in His wisdom saw it fit that I’d be here creating part of your legacy and more.
Wahu who turned into gospel music is wife to popular African-pop singer Nameless, and the two are the longest married couples in the Kenyan music industry with over a decade together.
Wahu went through the darkest time of her life when she lost her beloved dad, Mr.Kagwi, back in 2013, January 12th, though it was not clear what the cause of the death was.
Well, the singer has since accepted the loss and has been staying positive while taking care of her mother who has been widowed for 5 years now.
Media personality, Grace Msalame lost her dad Tony Msalame, on May 28, 2010.
The veteran broadcaster-cum-comedian passed away after collapsing at his Shekki FM studios at his home in Nyali in Mombasa.
Mr. Msalame is fondly remembered for his radio quiz show Zum Zum kipindi cha kuongeza maarifa on KBC that he co-hosted with Tido Mhando. In 1996, Mr Msalame joined Metro FM where he is famed for his Shekki Leggi (shake your leg) show at weekends.
President Uhuru Kenyatta is a celebrity dad to Jaba Kenyatta, Jomo Kenyatta and Ngina Kenyatta. Unlike many top ranked politicians who shy from making public appearances with their children, the Kenyatta’s have become popular figures thanks to their numerous appearances normally during state functions.
Speaking of politicians and their children, Rt Honorable Raila Odinga is another seasoned politician who loves to move around with his children in public.
Raila is a celebrity dad to the late Fidel Odinga, Ms Rosemary Odinga, Winnie Odinga and Raila Odinga Jr.
On more than one occasion, deputy president William Ruto has publicly paraded his six children insisting on how dear they are to him terming them as the reason behind his hard work in life.
Just like his boss, president Kenyatta, Ruto is often accompanied by his children during state occasions.
Gospel artiste and Tusker Project season 5 winner Ruth Matete is the daughter to celebrated Kenyan actor, Abel Amunga.
The multi-talented artiste and the founder of Ruth Matete Music Academy, the only child was raised by a single father, Abel Amunga.
She became a national sensation back in 2012 when she beat other contestants in the TPF competition, to win the much coveted Sh5million cash prize.
Wahu Kagwi who recently turned gospel, thinks it’s time for Uhuru to put to an end the theft of public money and decided to address the President in an open letter.
Recently, the media has been blowing with stories of mega corruption scandals; National Youth Service (NYS), Youth Enterprise Development Fund (YEDF), National Cereals and Produce Board (NCPB) and Kenya Power scandals.
The economy is bleeding as runway corruption scandals cripple service delivery, a few looters are getting rich at the expense of millions of Kenyans.
Well, Gospel singer Wahu wrote an open letter to president Uhuru to give him tips on how to fight corruption in Kenya. The singer want the president to follow the model used by Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Bin Mohamad in fighting corruption in the Asian country.
“Dear Mr. President @ukenyatta. Here’s a note from me to you! on my behalf, and on behalf of generations coming behind us. Show no Mercy!”
Other celebrities who joined hand to address the issue includes;
Daddy Owen a gospel artiste wrote;
“What is happening to our country is really sad.. l have so many questions, but the main one is WHO IS TO BLAME? is it the bad/greedy/corrupt leaders ?? Or is it the Voters who recycle the same corrupt/greedy/ and bad leaders??…. oops sorry let’s call them politicians instead of leaders #KenyaYatafunwa”
