Wahu has been blessed with possibly one of the best marriages in a day and age when the institution is under siege. The songstress has been married to singer Nameless for close to 14 years.
Their marriage has been blessed with two daughters; Nyakio Mathenge and Tumiso Nyakwea. So one has to take note when the secular-cum gospel musician speaks about raising kids.
She recently was a guest on Churchill Show that was filmed in Ngong and had some great advice for fathers raising kids. She noted that girls need attention more than a father’s money.
Fathers of girls, I want to tell you that your girl needs your attention more than she needs your money.
She further added that when fathers are present in their daughters’ lives it gives the girls confidence in the future. It also prevents the girls from looking to other men for attention, saying;
“…especially if you are raising teenagers. You may go out there to look for money, but spend more time with your girls so that they will not go out looking for attention from other men.
The singer also spoke about the way her late father raised her and praised him saying;
My dad gave me the attention I needed and I did not go out there to look for other kinds of male attention.
Wahu has had a firsthand seat in the way her husband Nameless raises her daughters, praised her husband for the way he has raised their daughters. She revealed;
Nameless is an amazing guy and I never see him as a celeb, I see him as Baba Tumiso who is very supportive in raising our girls.
