Every time I have been in a near death situation, my first reaction is to say No – Nameless reveals brain condition that almost killed him

Singer David Mathenge popularly known as Nameless has opened up about a brain condition that nearly killed him in September last year.

In an interview with KTN, Nameless opened up about  fighting subarachnoid haemorrhage, which is bleeding in the brain.

“I was in a board meeting, it was for PRISK. It was quite an intense board meeting that went on for about five or six hours. Then I started getting weird sensations in my throat. I thought if I drink water or sprite it’ll ease, I felt it creeping into my head. It was like bubbling.

“I started feeling a thumping and people who were in the boardroom were like hey are you ok? I told them I am not feeling good and I need to leave. I walked down the stairs, just in that short time probably like one minute, but by the time I reached the door of my car, I could tell something was totally wrong,” said Nameless.

Almost died

He went on to add that the feeling was followed by intense pain which made feel like he’s going to die in the next second. Luckly, his colleagues at PRISK, Noni and Daddy Owen, rushed him to Nairobi Hospital before he was transferred to Aga Khan University Hospital and admitted at the High Dependency Unit (HDU).

“Every time I have been in a near death situation, my first reaction is to say No! I have been on a car accident and in this case, as I found out later, I was saying No! I am not going now! I can’t! I am not ready to go!


“So, I was holding my head like this because I remember it felt like it was going to explode and I could feel it boiling…I was like No! No! No! I am not going, I can’t go,” he explained.

He went on:

“I was at HDU for 10 days, after the 10 days I was moved to a normal ward. They were like now we have reduced some of the medicine and the blood is reducing. In total, I think I stayed for three weeks.

“The only problem for me, separate from the haemorrhage, is when I lie on the back for long I have intense pain. I have always had an issue with my back.

“Some painkillers were suppressing it and I didn’t realize it but after five days the pain surpassed the one that was already being suppressed. I had to be taken back to theatre. That developed just because of me lying horizontally for too long.”

“I was told by the doctor bro you just almost died, forget about work….Then it sank in, that shifted me to just relax, it was high season, I had bookings, I had to tell them no. Let me just enjoy being alive,” he said. 

Wahu: Our night time routine usually ends in prayer

Singer Wahu is now a born again christian and is dedicated to spread God’s love and message. The mother of two who is married to fellow singer Nameless recently opened up sharing that she has always been prayerful.

She also asked parents to always dedicate time and pray for their children.

“Our night time routine usually ends in prayer. Sometimes by all of us, sometimes by just me. It is a wonderful thing to commit our children to the Lord and to continuously intercede for them.
I remember my mum’s morning prayers, where she placed each of her 5 kids before the Lord.

“Interestingly enough, she still keeps the same routine. Whenever mum comes over to spend, it is not uncommon to hear her praying for us at 5am. And I love it. I am my mother’s daughter. And I will continue to intercede for my children in prayer for as long as I live.” said Wahu on social media.


Note to all my fellow parents: let us Pray. Pray. Pray. For our babies. Commit them before the Lord. Stand in the gap for them. Pray for wisdom as we raise them. This is not a “good-to-do” it is our responsibility. ????.”
