Nameless’ Daughter Nyakio Leaves Him Hilarious Note After Getting Tired of Waiting for Him to Get Ready for School

Veteran musician and architect David Mathenge, popularly known as Nameless, has shared a hilarious note he received from his 2nd born daughter Nyakio.

In the note, Nyakio expressed her frustration with her father’s slowness in getting ready for school. She wrote, “Hello! By Nyakio, Daddy let us go. I am late!!! I need to go now.”

The note was accompanied by a drawing of a sad face.

Nameless shared the note on his Instagram account, and it quickly went viral. Many people found the note to be funny, and they could relate to Nyakio’s frustration.

Some people commented that they had also received similar notes from their children. Others said that they were impressed by Nyakio’s assertiveness.

Nameless himself found the note to be amusing, and he joked that he was “under pressure” from his daughter. He also said that he was glad that Nyakio loved school.

The note is a reminder that even celebrities are parents, and they have to deal with the same challenges as everyone else. It is also a reminder that children can be very creative and expressive, and they often find unique ways to communicate their feelings.

‘Commit A Crime & I’ll Get You A Lawyer’-Nameless Celebrates Wahu’s Birthday With Sweet Message

Legendary musician Nameless has gushed over her lover Wahu as she celebrates being a year older. In Nameless’s message, he has referred to Wahu as his ‘best friend & life partner.

Taking to his social media, he flaunted an adorable photo of himself in tandem with Wahu-all booed up. He captioned;

”Birthday gal!!!🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🔥🔥🔥🔥 I got your back!
Commit a crime and I will get you a lawyer 🤭🤔😂😂….
On the real though, to my life partner , best friend, lover, co-parent, and biz partner , may you keep growing, glowing, and inspiring!

Today your wish is my command… Today pekee yake though.😜😜. #birthdayGal #March22 #loveThisPic😊 #MamaGalz”

On the flipside, Wahu showed gratitude and replied to the post;

”😄😄😄😄 thank you babe! Hapo Kwa your wish….be sure I’ll take full advantage of today! ”

The two recently welcomed their third baby in October last year. Their third born is also a daughter, something that Nameless has been denigrated for.


Nameless responds to fan who asked him to look for a son, days after he welcomed 3rd born daughter

Nameless has been having it abit rough from fans who dont seem to understand that times have changed. You see, back in the day having daughters was something many didnt appreciate; this is because they’d assume girls are only dowry and after marriage theyd then carry their husbands name and start a family of their own.

Sons on the other hand get to carry their fathers legacy and get to grow his family…which is why they were considered a favorite. Well, surprisingly looks like these old teachings remain in a few of us, and i say this after coming across a comment left by of Nameless’ fans urging him to get a son.

Well, barely a week afyer his 3rd born daughter was born, a fan identified as Dalphine Memba wrote to Nameless telling him;

Tafuta Kijana boss…your legacy. We Africans.

Nameless’ priceless response

Okay, I really don’t know what was going on in Dalphine Memba’s head when she posted the comment; but truth is – thanks to her, those with the same behavior have learnt what happens when you let your loose fingers do the talking.

Responding to this particular fan, Nameless through his Facebook wrote back saying;

Dalphine Memba actually I really want my legacy to be a father of three beautiful gals filled with wisdom, humility and compassion. Who will live a responsible life that creates peace and joy for them and for others around them. For them, that is the vision I am working towards.

He went on to address others with similar thoughts on him and his family – and after years of maintaining his silence on this “tafuta kijana” issue…Nameless now says its time we all evolved.


Daddy duties! Nameless requests fans to help find adorable name of his baby girl

Singer Nameless recently revealed he’d travelled to the US to try make more money for pampers now that his wife of 17 years is expecting another baby.

Nameless with his girls, Tumiso(older) and Nyakio

Their pregnancy announcement came at a time nobody was expecting that the two were still planning for more babies; but in a way it feels like they were maybe trying for a son – now that they’ve been blessed with 2 daughters.

Anyway with the new baby on the way, Nameless says his second born daughter has been asking for another name since she only has Nyakio, a name she was given after her grandmother. Speaking about his daughter’s request for a new name, Nameless wrote;

Nameless consoles daughter, Nyakio

Haiya. Huyu anazusha ati hakupatiwa Jina ingine apart from her traditional name “Nyakio” named after her anaona kuna mwenzake ako on the way.

The middle child

Well, looks like Nyakio is already experiencing that emptiness’ most middle kids in the family feel; and of course she has every right to feel envious too – I mean, she’s been the last born for years and now there’s another going to take her place?

Anyway – all kids feel that way – and I’m pretty sure her sister Tumiso also felt the same way; but now that she’s 16 years….I guess she has different things to worry about.

In conclusion Nameless asked his fans to help give a good African name for his baby girl saying;

Anataka Jina ingine kabla ya incoming kumdethrone from the LastBornAssociation. Ebu tupatie ideas of African names. Mulitusaidia sana tukitafuta jina ya Tumiso.


Nameless Displeased By Fans’ Negative Attitude On Kenyan Music, Says The Industry Is Growing

The heated debate on the performance of Kenyan music remains unsettled; with netizens still undivided on whether it’s really dying or becoming better. Whichever the case, legendary musician Nameless has had his say on the paramount issue; which seems to be getting out of hand.

Kenyan Music On The Edge?

The musician has chopped it up with comedian Eric Omondi, who spearheaded the debate; which has roped in more & more sentiments from celebrities; especially during this festive season when they’re performing in concerts.

After an electric performance by Sauti Sol over the weekend, Nameless congratulated them and stated that their performance proved Kenyan music is still alive.

”Meanwhile … Thank you @sautisol for proving that Kenyan Music is very much alive!! Let no one cheat you that the industry is dead, it passes different stages with ups and downs and different waves, this is part of industry evolution.. we are evolving as an industry and we are all in the pioneer stage of this Urban Pop industry! That means there will be alot of challenges, mistakes and learning ,from the different generation that leads to growth and structure formations.If we are more strategic as an industry we will grow faster and sustain better👊🏾.. for now I am just happy for these guys because their work ethic has given them results over the years!! #SolGeneration #SolFest”

However, his sentiments were countered by Eric Omondi; who maintained that the industry is still ‘dead’ and that he should stop sugarcoating;

”I had a veeery long Conversation with my Big Brother @namelesskenya on the Condition of our Industry. We agreed on afew things but I STILL dont THINK Sugarcoating things and Giving excuses on behalf of the Industry will help our Case. We know Exactly what to do. The FORMULA is Simple and UNIVERSAL. WATU Waache Kulala. I do HONESTLY feel like our MUSICIANS are SIMPLY not PUTTING in ENOUGH. They are PLAIN and lack VISIBLE EFFORT…  AMBIA VIJANA WAAMKE!!! Niko na ka Homa but as agreed ntakutafuta Weekend tumalize Convo.”

Nameless also found himself on the receiving end by a fan who reiterated Eric’s sentiments; and this is how he had to respond to them;



Nameless Celebrates Aged Dad’s Birthday Who Contracted COVID-19 But Recovered (Video)

Kenyan musician Nameless is celebrating his dad’s 85th birthday today with a lot of thanksgiving. Nameless disclosed that both his parents contracted COVID-19 about a month ago and that they have underlying conditions, which makes them more vulnerable to the virus.

However, his parents are among the strong people who recovered from the virus. As Nameless reveals, his parents contracting the virus gave them a scare.

Celebrating his strong dad’s birthday, he wrote;

Nameless Finally Recovers His Instagram Account, Days After Losing It To Hackers

Kenyan musician Nameless has announced the recovery of his Instagram account with over 1 Million followers. The legendary musician had his account hacked by an Iraqi, who later started posting football related content on the page.

Nameless’s wife Wahu made the announcement when the account was hacked. She asked fans to disregard any message that would be posted by the account.

”Hey, fam. 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”

Most Kenyans could be seen on the comment section trying to tell the hackers to return the account. Their efforts have paid off.

After recovering the account, Nameless immediately deleted the content posted by the hackers. However, his followers still stand at 1.2 Million. He couldn’t hide his joy after recovery of the account. Posting a video with his daughter on his gram, he wrote;

”GUESS WHOSE BACK ON IG!!!😊😊😊 💥💥💥💥.. we are Soo happy over here…and gratefull 🙏🏿🙏🏿 to all that assisted me get it back. Will fill you in on that later!!

Nameless Explains The Importance Of Talking To Teenage Daughters About Sex

Being a parent comes with demanding responsibilities. Apart from taking care of them, you have to talk to them often about their feelings. This helps them to open up and avoid making the wrong choices on their own. At 44 years old, Nameless is a dad to two daughters; his eldest being Tumiso Mathenge.

Nameless, Wahu and their daughters-Google

At 14 years old, she’s now a teenager, who needs proper guidance on matters regarding sexuality. His father Nameless (David Mathenge) is up to the task. The generation has changed; kids are growing fast, and Nameless agrees with this. On his Instagram, he posted, \

”As a father of galz I have decided to create an environment that allows my daughters to tell me anything without fear of judgement, especially my firstborn @tumi.mathenge who is a teenager. I want her to be able to talk to me about anything , including questions on Sexuality , so that she does not get confused by the peer pressure that comes with that age.

I believe teenagers should abstain from sex for many reasons but it is important that they truly understand the reasons so that they make that choice themselves. Parents of teenagers tuko pamoja 💪🏾👊🏾.. let’s find ways to share our experiences and help each other bring up a well rounded generation…#BabaGalz 💪🏾💯 #adolemanenoz #Tujulishane  #parentingz💪🏾💯

I totally agree with Nameless. It’s time parents start talking to their teenage children about sexuality.


Casual photo of Nameless and Wahu on simple date night at local restaurant elicits mixed reactions

Kenyan celebrity couple David Mathenge aka Nameless and Wahu Kagwi this year marked 15 years in marriage. A true definition of tears and joy, ups and downs served in one plate but still came out alive.

The two continue to soldier on as they juggle growth in their professional life as well as bringing up their 2 daughters in the best way they can.

Also read: Ringtone warned after being caught on camera thirsting over Nameless’ teen daughter

It is no lie they stand as one of the longest-standing married celebrity couples in the country.

15 years later, the two still step out looking like a young couple, trying their luck at dating. How they manage to maintain it at that, remains their long-kept secret.

The evening date

Anyway, so the two, fond of each others company and occasionally putting aside their parenting duties, to spend quality time together, were spotted out on a casual date.

Its not even the lunch date but the simplicity of it. When the expectation would be high-end dinner dates in warm-lit, luxurious spaces, the Mathenges kept it simple.

The Mathenges

The two walked into a popular local fast food restaurant, took their seats and ordered a packet of chips, a piece of chicken and two sausages and that was it.

None of them even dressed to the occasion, simply covered in hoodies.

A photo shared by the legendary pop star who cautioned youths against set standards of 5-star hotels and so on, as the true definition of dates with your significant other.

“Kama ni wako ni wako. Peleka mcfrys muenjoy kuku kwota na kachili, hizi presha za shosho media zitakumaliza😜😜, kwani iko Nini…🤷🏾‍♂️” Nameless questioned.

Some of his fellow celebrities however, believed he had booked the entire place for themselves, probably why no one else was in the room. Especially for a restaurant that is normally packed.

Others commenting that even though it was a local restaurant, high chances are they went to the ones around Nairobis posh suburbs and not just any other.

A section explaining that having been in marriage for 15 years, nothing like posh restaurants would pull them apart anyway.

Nameless and Wahu dinner date

Either way, the remarkable couple was praised for their simplicity and authenticity, living life by their own rules.

Whats your take?

A post that left a bitter taste among his followers, questioning his sanity.

Ringtone forewarned?

He however later edited his caption. Probably after receiving a warning from the music power couple, who felt Ringtone had crossed his boundaries.

Not so long ago, did Wahu Kagwi open up on being sexually molested aged 9. By her male cousin who waited for her mom to go to the shamba and soon after abused the singer.

Wahu came out to caution parents of young children and teenagers to keep especially, their girls under close watch and never to trust relatives with their daughters.

Clearly, Ringtone’s post did not sit well with Wahu who knows how it feels to have her girls intruded into.

The unfortunate incident

So soon as her mom had left, the male adult started touching a 9-year old Wahu very inappropriately that left her irritated by his actions but could not defend herself then.

After he was done, the guy had the audacity to just say sorry to a young Wahu Kagwi before asking her; “Si you also touch me the same way.”

Remember, Wahu was 9 years old and for her male cousin to ask her to just do what he had just done on her, was going to be an offence by Law. But either way, he still asked.

“It still hurts, it still upsets me when I think about it. My mum trusted her nephew to take care of her child, she had just gone to pick sukumawiki and she of course did not imagine her nephew could do something like that,” explained Wahu.

Singer, Wahu Kagwi, commemorates late dad

With eyes soaked in tears, the gospel singer who had never talked about the incident, clarified, she decided to open up, not that it was easy, but just to urge parents never to trust anyone to take care of their children. Never!

“We have to be so careful who we let into the space of our homes. And being a mother of girls, I can’t just let any guy into my house or just entrust them with anybody.

Her post since sparked mixed reactions online, with fans sending her lots of love and warm hugs, thanking her for the courage to let it all out.


Wahu Kagwi and employees dazzle fans in viral Jerusalema dance challenge (Video)

Fortunately, after 10 days in hospital, Mathenge Sr., successfully underwent the head surgery in the hands of neuro-surgeon Dr D. Olunya and his team. The same doctor who treated Nameless 3 years ago for a threatening brain condition.

Today I give thanks to God because he got discharged and the doctor was happy with his recovery process. Now its just some home nursing care and mzee will be good . He is strong for 84 year, delicate but strong💪🏾💪🏾, penned Nameless on his Instagram page.

Eric Musyoka, the iconic producer who took Kenyan music to greater heights

It’s hard to talk about Kenyan music without mentioning the name of Decimal Records CEO Eric Musyoka, popularly known as Musyox. He has been very instrumental in shaping the Kenyan sound.

Also read: Stop looking for content from new-age musicians!

In the early to mid 2000s when Calif Records and Ogopa Deejays were beefing, the award-winning producer, who is now 38, was working at Homeboyz Entertianment.


While at the stable which is owned by the Rabar family, Musyoka produced songs for the musicians like; Prezzo, TID, Mr Lenny, Nameless, AY, Wyre, Peter Miles, Nikki, Nonini, just to name a few.

He then took a break and went for further studies at the SAE Institute in the US in 2006. Upon his return, he formed Decimal Records and signed P-Unit.

If you ask me, I will tell you that the group that was made up Frasha, Bon Eye and Gabu is one of Musyoka’s greatest achievements to this day. He literally propelled them to greater heights.

Musyoka and Bon Eye

What most people do not know is that the three started off as Nonini’s dancers and back-up singers and by 2010 they had won several awards including a MTV Africa Music Award (MAMA). Take a moment and let that sink in.

At Decimal, Musyoka has also worked with Just A Band, Juliani, Daddy Owen, Sauti Sol, Elani, Octopizzo and many more. Put simply, there is a high chance that he has produced a jam for your favourite Kenyan artist.

When all is said and done, he will be remembered for nurturing talents and taking Kenyan music to the continental stage because he started  producing music at a time when most artists were just focusing on their local audiences.

Musyoka is one of the producers who changed the game by ensuring our music could transcend our borders and this led to artists getting so many shows outside the country.

He’s a legend in his own right and it saddens me that most people will realize this after he hangs up his boots because as they say, you never miss something until it’s gone.

Watch one of his most popular jams dubbed Furahi Day by Nonini and Nameless below.



We really need Phy back on the music scene

If there is an artist that I have missed on the Kenyan music scene it’s one beautiful lass known as Phyllis Ng’etich. You might know her from that Taabu song or the song that she did with Khaligraph and King Kaka dubbed Ruka.

Also read: Why it’s tough being a female musician in Kenya

The first time most of us heard about her was when she was a contestant on Maisha Superstar. To this very day I still remember her rendition of Nameless’ Sinzia. It was magical to say the least.


Phy is such a great vocalist and I would even dare say that she is one of the greatest female vocalists in Kenya, you might think otherwise and it’s totally okay.

When you listen to her, you just get life instantly. If you were having a bad day, her songs just cheer you up and I am not exaggerating any of this. Ask any die-hard fan of hers.

And it is partly the reason why I would love to see her back on the music scene. Other than the fact that she is such a great singer, I think she is also too young to take a backseat. I believe she is 26 or so.


Understandably, she became a mother and that is one of the challenges that comes with being a female artist but I believe her child is now all grown and she should now make a comeback.

To be honest, her fans like myself, really miss her and if she released a new song today, we would listen to it for the rest of the year. If we can, we will even make it the national anthem. No kidding.

It is really sad seeing such a talented artist just fade away. Phy, if you’re reading this then it’s about time you made a comeback on the local music scene. Enough said.


Kenyan musicians have so much to learn from their Tanzanian counterparts

I’m not a fan of Bongo music. I only listen to Tanzanian songs when I have to, for instance when I am doing a review or when they are randomly played at a club, party or in a matatu.

Also read: Why it’s hard for artists to be consistent

On the flip side, I admire so many Tanzanian artists not for any other reason but because they really work their asses off. I could list them but their names would take up all this space. So, I’ll save you the agony.

WCB arists
WCB artists

Bongo music has always been big deal  not only in Tanzania but across the continent and it’s bout time we – or rather our artists – borrowed a leaf from them.

They should ask themselves questions like,”What can we learn from Tanzanian musicians?”, “What areas should we work on?” and “What are they doing differently?”

One of the Bongo artists that I really admire, just like most of you is Diamond Platnumz. Despite being accomplished and all, he has never been content with his success. He keeps pushing each and every day.

Since the year begun he has released more than 30 songs, perhaps more, including collabos. As a result, he is always at the top of people’s minds.

Khaligraph Jones
Khaligraph Jones

It always seems like he is a pacesetter for the Tanzanian music industry since most people – including his stablemates – like Rayvanny, Lava Lava, Mbosso and Queen Darleen want to keep up with him.

The local music industry lacks a someone who keeps artists on their toes as is the case with Tanzania and this means that very few musicians, if any, give a hoot about consistency.

The truth is that people get bored very fast. I doubt if any of the people who are reading this article can have a jam in their playlists for more than a week and this means that artists need to release more music. There is no other way.

Many of you will be quick to point out that new age artists such as; Sailors Gang, Boondocks Gang, Ochunglo Family, 34 GVNG, Gwaash, etc. are constantly releasing music but let’s be honest, that is not serious music.

Nadia Mukami
Nadia Mukami

In as much as we find the songs by these youngins catchy, they rarely transcend our borders. It’s what it is. To add to that, the quality is always wanting.

I’m talking about the likes of Nyashinski, Nadia Mukami, Octopizzo, Khaligraph, King Kaka, Redsan, Nameless, Jua Cali, Avril etc. Will they ever wake up from their deep slumber? If so, when? Enough said.


Boutross entertains fans with new single dubbed ‘Juju’ (Video)

Kenyan rapper Boutross Munene, who is one third of the Alliance Domini (AD) Family and famed for his Wrong hit, has released a new jam an it’s a big tune.

Also read: Boutross, young rapper who is changing the game

The song dubbed Juju is a cover of a 2006 classic by Nameless an Mr. Lenny which goes by the same title and boy he totally nailed it.

Boutross Munene
Boutross Munene

Unlike the original version, Boutross’ rendition has a rap – or is it shrap – verse and believe you me, this made such a big difference. To add to that, the two songs are similar but different. You catch my drift?

Perhaps the most amazing thing about this song is listening to Boutross sing. You know, we are used to him rapping but in this jam, he singing in most parts. This chap is really talented.

The beat on this jam is also on point. If you are familiar with Lemario’s work then I am sure you know that he never disappoints. I dare even say that this beat is more catchy than the original one.

I honestly can’t wait it hear more songs from Boutross’ mix tape titled 6ixviewsii8k because from the look of things it is totally fire. Enough said.

Watch Juju below and tell us what you think.


Nameless Vs Jua Cali: Who made our childhood memorable?

If you are in your 20s or older then I’m sure you have nostalgia when you remember the kind of songs that rules the airwaves in the early 2000s.


Genge music had just emerged and almost every artist was releasing a song that was inclined towards the genre.

However, others decided to steer their own paths and their songs were received well by fans nevertheless.

Put simply, it was a beautiful time for Kenyan music. It’s almost similar to the music revolution that is being witnessed in the country at the moment.

Among the male artists that were such a big deal at the time were; Pilipili, Flexx, E-Sir, Jimwat, Nonini, Klepto, Czars, Longombas, Redsan, Deux Vultures, Historians, Prezzo, Wyre, Mr. Lenny, Jua Cali and Nameless.

Timmy Tdat Vs Willy Paul Vs Khaligraph: Who is the best live performer?

When you attend a gig, you expect to be entertained and this largely depends on the performers and what they do on stage. Truth is, anyone can get on stage but very few people can own it. (I sound like a motivational speaker at this point).

I have attended a couple of gigs over the last few years and watched some on YouTube and in my honest opinion some of the best live Kenyan performers are; The Kansoul, Jua Cali, Juliani, Nameless, Sauti Sol, Avril, Timmy Tdat, Willy Paul and Khaligraph Jones.

Today, we’ll focus on the last three names because they are individuals who are current i.e. they don’t belong to any groups and they have been in the game for almost the same period of time and they are still relevant to date.

We would like to find out who among the three you consider the best live performer and why. What makes each of them stand out and why? We want to know how they manage to pull large crowds to their events.

Willy Paul

Apart from having mad energy while performing, the Tam Tam hitmaker is known to pull stunts on stage. He always does something unexpected perhaps this is why his fans can’t get enough of him.

Timmy Tdat

The Kipopo hitmaker is not only energetic, he also knows how to interact with the crowd. To add to that, he’s likely to dance seductively with a girl on stage during a gig.

Khaligraph Jones

The O.G as he is popularly known is good at crowd control. He’s not jumpy like the other two but if you attend his gig, you’ll definitely get value for your money. He has a unique style of entertaining his fans and in my opinion, it works for him.

According to you, who among the three is the be best live performer? Tell us!


Khaligraph has taken Kenyan music international with his latest release dubbed ‘Superman’ (Video)

Kenyan music is now international thanks to rapper alias Khaligraph Jones. Anyway, let’s be honest, Kenyan music crossed Africa’s borders a long time ago. All I mean is that his latest is release is a gamechanger. That’s all.

Papa Jones has been on a roll since the year began. If you are keen, you’ll notice that he has a new single, including songs in which he is featured, almost every three weeks.

Nameless recently featured him on the remix of Megarider. The song, which was released roughly three few weeks ago, has been getting massive airplay on local TV and radio stations.

Even before the dust settles, Khaligraph is back with yet another single. And no, we are not complaining. In fact, we couldn’t be any happier.


Yesterday, Khaligraph dropped his latest single dubbed Superman and belive you me, it’s a work of art. Just like wine, this 28-year-old rapper keeps getting better with time.

In the song, Khaligraph talks about his musical journey and how he became one of the biggest rappers in the game because of his sheer determination.

As expected, his rap flow was on point in the song. His lyrics were mostly in English so much so that if don’t know who Papa Jones is you would mistake it for a foreign song. Okay, I’m pushing it.

My favourite line in the song is “My passion for music drove me to the studio not of the money and hype, was dedicated and committed I made the microphone my honey and wife…”

The video which was directed by Jeff Adair was also on point. As it begins, there’s a flicker which hits the ground before Khaligraph emerges from a bush. Perhaps, this is meant to reinforce the fact that he’s a superman.

The beat, which was produced by Motif, was also superb.

Watch Superman below and tell us what you think.


Issa TBT: The night shift job that made Nameless whom he is today

Your favorite Kenyan artist, Nameless is a star in the lucrative music industry that sees many tip off just shortly after they step in.

However, Music star, Nameless, has defied the odds and remains relevant to date, a whooping 20 years down the road.

Celebrated Kenyan pop artist, Nameless

Nameless takes us down memory lane of what his teenage life was like, a stage that has made him who he is today.

Both exciting, scaring but he dared it all.

That Call

I was just a campus student, young kid, I remember that day I was having a night shift job.

So me and my girlfriend, Wahu, she used to walk me half way on my way to work, , and then I´d head back to college.

Nameless and his then girlfriend, Wahu kagwi

So that day, I think I was a bit down, I was feeling really down.

Wifey, girlfriend at that time was trying to uplift my spirits but I was like, it will be alright.

Then I went to work.

When I reached jobbo, ofcos, my friend was there, we used to work just the 2 of us night shift.

Newton and me.

We started working as per kawaida and then, something interesting happened.

On the radio, at the time, Muthoni Bwika announced that the biggest producer, Tejo Signs in studio was looking for artists; rap or sing, give a call:

Yeeeah, Are you gifted? Are you talented? Can you drop a rhyme? Can you sing?

Well am waiting for you because he is looking out for talent and the person who wins, will cut a record with him aka, ´a single´ so just don´t sit around and give me a call on 24….

Nameless could not help but listen keenly.

I knew I had an interest in rapping, but I wasn´t sure that was my talent.

He thought about giving his friend, Newton a hint about his desire to give the producer a call and all, but he decided to keep it to himself.

Nameless stands up and goes to the office next door, to make that call.

To his surprise, Muthoni picks and she´s like:

Yoh, you wanna try it?

Yah, I wanna try.

Let´s go.

Popular Kenyan singer, David Mathenge, stage name, ´Nameless´


So Nameless is given beats to rap to and here he goes:

Asubuhi na mapema, naamka, ninaoga, nauliza, mirror mirror on the ukuta, what do I need….?

Muthoni gave Nameless some positive vibes and went ahead:

Woh, that´s pretty cool…What´s your name?

Nameless was not sure what answer to give because he hadn´t decided on an artistic name so it became a challenge.

And bang! He picked on ´Nameless´ because chances are that his boss was listening on radio and all.

So Muthoni went with it but once they had made a decision, they would sure call back.

Nameless then heads back to office and Newton can´t just believe his friend missed a guy called ´Nameless´ rap on the radio.

And in my head I´m thinking, should I tell him it´s me?

So I ask him, what did you think about it, and stuff like that.

Next day, announcement is, ´Nameless´ actually won, he is now in the finals.

Same thing, he walks out of the room, leaves Newton in the office and goes into the next office, makes the call and returns.

So Newton is like, dude you keep missing.

Every time you go to the toilet, this guy comes on air.

Newton likes the rap and all and Nameless feels encouraged.

Good thing about it, is funny enough, guys liked the vibe and they voted me in and I won the gig with Tedd.

And…two days later, I was recording Megarider.

I can say that call I made, changed my life because at that point, on Monday, the next week, they launched my Megarider.

People loved it, it became my hit, and now I had to be Nameless.

People were anxious to know his kind of profile.

And that´s when my journey started, literally 20 years ago.

Nameless and his then girlfriend, Wahu were the key voices in the song.

Celebrated popular couple, The Mathenges

Wahu is the voice behind the ´Nameless´ music bed as Nameless takes down the rap.

Fellow secular-cum-gospel artist, Wahu Kagwi is the mother of Nameless´ 2 adorable daughters.

Tedd Josiah produced Nameless debut dingle, ´Megarider´.

Megarider was recorded and released back in 1999 as Nameless first single, which opened paths to his unexpected musical journey.

The rest is history.

How Jua Cali has remained relevant to date

Paul Julius Nunda, alias Jua Cali, is still relevant to date, almost two decades after he made his debut in the local music industry.

His fanbase continues to grow every day. Event organizers are known to include him and in their line-ups so that he can pull huge crowds.

However, many people don’t understand how he has managed to stay afloat in the competitive music business for such a long time.

Most of the people that he started off with, save for Nameless, either quit music along the way or have been struggling to make a comeback.

His success over the years has left many wondering “What’s his secret?”, “How does he do it?”, “What sets him apart?”

Well, it’s simple. First, his unique style of music and ability to use sheng lyrically sets him apart from the rest. As the pioneer of Genge, Jua Cali shaped the Kenyan sound.

Jua Cali

There have been various adaptions of Genge since 2001 when we were first introduced to the sound. However, as you know, the master can never be outshone.

Secondly, Jua Cali is a hard worker. Unlike most artists, music is his only job. He spends most of his time in studio and has more than 100 unreleased songs.

If he releases a song and it’s doing well on the charts, you’ll find him in studio hours later working on the next hit. This is not the case with most modern day musicians who prefer to go on a break when their song is topping playlists.

Lastly, the King of Genge is humble and easy to work with. If you agree to meet up at certain time, he will arrive at the meeting venue ahead of you.

He also doesn’t have the “you must know people” syndrome as is the case with most local musicians. If you meet and you don’t know him, he will introduce himself and not ask you to Google him.

These are just some of the reasons why Jua Cali is still popular to this very day. As such, you should not be shocked when he is still receiving massive airplay 10 years down the line.

She told me this is where I am and my heart is here and I promised my support to her. We’ve learnt how to support each other, and though we are a couple, we are separate human beings. If my call will be gospel in future, I will also join her because it is always about what inspires us.”
