Legendary musicians Wahu Kagwi and Nameless recently welcomed their third born child; a baby girl- who happens to be a third girl in their family. The big question posed to them was whether they intended to sire a son considering their household is now filled with girls only.
To begin with, Nameless was on the receiving end after stereotypic fans flocked his comment section pressuring him to have a son. His response;
”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”
Well, nowadays women are also entitled to inheritance and whatnots, and it’s not peculiar to sire girls only in a family. In this case, Nameless sentiments would suffice. And his wife Wahu is also rooting for the same. One of her fans reiterated the latter question. And Wahu maintained she’s contented with having daughters only in her household.
Legendary musician Wahu Kagwi is expectant with her third child. And the singer is not only exuberant about it, but also anxious to meet their cosseted bundle of joy. Wahu already has 2 daughters whom she sired with her hubby Nameless.
The Kenyan singer is already experiencing the body changes that come with pregnancy. One of the common ones is a swollen nose. The gorgeous lady shared a funny photo as she showed her swollen nose due to the pregnancy.
“Hii ndio inaitwa breathing for two?? Wueh!!!! I still don’t understand why the nose does this ,” she captioned hilariously. ”
The other change that caught her unawares was swelling of her feet. She even had to go to hospital to inquire whether it’s normal- since she never experienced the same in her previous pregnancies. It was however, termed as normal. And Wahu shared through her Instagram stories how fans who have experienced the same expressed their concern.
”Thank you to all who’ve messaged me about their own body swelling experience. This is the 1st time it’s happened to me. And that’s why I was so tense. Also remember I’m not young. So concern ni kawaida.”
Wahu is currently on her third trimester- which is the last stage of pregnancy. It means she’ll be expecting her bundle of joy in the next few weeks.
Cases of young girls and women being sexually harrassed have been on the rise in the country. Seems like this has been something that has been going on for very many years; Most women decide to keep quiet about it and feel ashamed. This is partly because some of them have been molested by people they trusted; their own relatives. Many times we’ve heard a 3 year old girl raped by a 40 year old man; who is her uncle. It’s clear to say that most men are pedophiles and tend to take advantage of the young ones.
Kenyan singer Wahu Kagwi is one of those who have experienced this. She discloses the incident that led to her 19 year old cousin molesting her when she was just 9 years old. In an interview with Nana Owiti, she says,
”So what happened to me when I was 9 years old is, I was in shagz. We used to go to shagz every weekend to get the supplies for the week. Mboga, waru, all those things for the week. So, I have an older cousin. Of course kuna ma cousins wengi sana shagz and all… My mom had gone to the garden kupick sukuma wiki. I was 9. So, tulikuwa kwa compound. And this is her nephew. So it just makes sense to say, nichungie mtoi naenda apa nakam. He was 19… I don’t want to go into detail, but he molested me and I knew it was a bad thing.”
Wahu claims that many women have since inboxed her and opened up on having similar experiences.
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.
Short hair has been largely embraced in the local market especially by female celebrities who have opted for a bold, more polished and different look that has only left them looking younger and hotter.
Be it young or older, married or single, in their different professions and daily hustles, several female celebrities have come out to prove short hair can still look sexxy. Let’s dive right in;
The Utawezana rapper and hitmaker is one personality whose stylish, colorful hair dyes ranging from yellow, to pink, to red and even green has only made her stand out in the industry. No lie, this fine babe goes extra when she decides to!
The first time mom, took the internet by storm after chopping off her beautiful, long, dark African hair soon as she welcomed her son Taiyari with Frankie Just Gym It. Matter of fact, Frankie was the one who brought in the idea and a dear Corazon did not even think twice about it.
5. Azziad Nasenya
The celebrated TV show host and actress keeps her natural hair short, away from the screens, more often spotted with a blonde look, pimping it with braids and wigs once in a while.
6. Lilian Muli
The TV girl always seen in wigs, once ditched them for a hot look in short plumed hair. This was after getting rid of the short locs she had hidden beneath her wigs for a long time. And honestly, her age betrays the look.
7. Huddah Monroe
Huddah loves her hair short and trimmed, recently letting off the wigs and signature bandanas,to step out looking like a 16-year old, after trimming it a bit more and she sure looks stunning.
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.
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.”
From the spa, to the barber area, to the salon, the place was turned into a dance floor in a matter of seconds. Wahu Kagwi leading the crew in letting off the steam.
The singer, mother of two and wife to legendary pop artist, Nameless, has been running her salon business dubbed Afro Siri since 2013 and for her, the place is like home and her employees are like family.
As Nameless and Wahu marked their 15th wedding anniversary, his dad was spending nights on a hospital bed set to undergo head surgery after suffering blood clots in his head.
Opening up on the unfortunate incident, the celebrated artist revealed his dad was battling a condition Subdural Hematoma that causes collection of blood in an inner layer of the head, which caused him minor strokes.
Even as the Mathenge’s lit a candle to celebrate the couple’s milestones in their love life, the artist admitted it was nerve racking for them. Having too see their dad undergo such a sensitive surgery in his old age, was not easy for the family.
Surgery turns out successful
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.
The singer further disclosed that the hospital bill had ballooned into a crazy sum but fortunately enough, NHIF had come through for him and his loved ones to cater for part of the bill and he can never be more grateful for that.
Also the bill had gotten kidogo crazy but thank God NHIF came through as well to help us with part of the bill. Especially at a time like the Corona season????????♂️when things are tough ..all in all just want to give thanks???????????????? .Today I celebrate life???????? and second chances!! That’s why I was dancing like a mad man Jana????????
Kenyan power couple Nameless and Wahu Kagwi started their love story back in college and 22 years later, they celebrate a 15-year old marriage glued together by enduring love.
Taking to their Insta pages, the pair adored each other with kind, heartfelt words full of promises and gratitude that they never gave up even when it was darkest.
For Wahu, the date remains forever ingrained in her mind, September 10, 2005, she puddled on a boat, across a lake, to say “I Do” to the love of her life, father to her children and her campus sweetheart.
As for her beloved, he mischievously won her heart 22 years ago, been through so much together over the years but the journey continues because she is still “The One”.
“Happy anniversary babe! Cheers to us, cheers to our journey, cheers to the ups the downs , joys and sorrows, the wins and losses, yooo!! we definately grown ????????! The journey continues????????!! and I still got your back????,” Nameless laid bare his promises to his Queen.
The adorable and intelligent Mathenge couple, blessed with two now all-grown daughters marked the big date in a stunning, royal photoshoot that has since brought the internet to a standstill. Have a look:
Singer Wahu switched from making secular music to gospel almost 10 years after dominating the industry with nothing but hit songs. She is however still in the music industry; but unlike before the singer is all about spreading gospel through her songs.
Back in the day things were however not as easy since she had a few demons to battle with. The singer revealed this through her instagram page, the mother of two has opened up revealing how she struggled with self esteem issues back in the day.
According to Wahu when she was teenager she felt ugly, unintelligent; and above all she did not feel worth to be loved. This being part of the adolescent she probably did not imagine the effect it would have on her; until the insecurities got worse in her early 20’s. Through her gram the gospel singer wrote;
As a teenager and into my early twenties, I had terrible self esteem issues. I felt ugly, unintelligent and unworthy of being loved. I never thought I’d amount to anything much in life. I wish I could go back in time and tell 17 year old wahu that everything’s gonna be more than ok. That God is on her side and she will overcome.
With this story, Wahu went on to mention that she hopes it speaks massive to anyone struggling with anything that makes them feel less. She went on to add saying;
I dont know who needs to hear this but dont believe the lies the devil will throws your way. Gods got you young girl…Gods got you young man. And there’s nothing like being worthy of Gods love..no..his love is unconditional..it knows no religion, no “I’m good or im bad”…no “I dont deserve good things to happen to me”…no. And the bigger your test the bigger your testimony.
Although we don’t get to hear much from Wahu like before; the lady continues to use her social media pages to spread positivity and encourage those at their lowest especially with the pandemic that has left many with money struggles!
Wahu Kagwi publicly announced that she had given her life to Christ sometimes in November 2017. The mother of two has dropped at least three gospel songs ever since she got saved.
Wahu is currently promoting her new song ‘Nifanane Nawe’. She opened up about her journey so far in gospel industry in an interview with Word Is.
“I’m grateful for the reception and there has been a lot of positive comment since I made my announcement that I was changing to gospel. I received a lot of support from the church and the gospel circle so I’m overwhelmed because the non-gospel artistes are also really supporting me which speaks a lot,” said Wahu.
Wahu also stated that she doesn’t regret her time as a secular musician, she explains that doing non religious songs was part of her journey.
“I was true to doing my singing, even as a secular artiste, and I don’t regret having done secular music because it was part of my journey. Even then, I did back-up music for gospel artistes although at the time, I felt there was a bit of a authenticity because I could see some church leaders preaching wine and drinking water,” said Wahu.
President Uhuru Kenyatta’s big four agenda is choked by the cancer of corruption. People are looting government coffers and Wahu thinks it’s time for Uhuru to put to an end the theft of public money.
The media is awash 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.
Gospel singer Wahu wrote an open letter to president Uhuru to give him tips on how to stop corruption in Kenya. The singer wants Uhuru 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!” Wrote Wahu.
Last year Nameless underwent surgery to remove a blood clot in his brain. The singer’s wife Wahu Kagwi says her husband’s life-threatening condition was a turning point in her life.
Sometimes in October 2017 Nameless was rushed to hospital after small blood vessels in his brain ruptured causing blood to leak in the brain. The ‘Inspire Me’ hit maker was hospitalized for about 3 weeks as doctors closely monitered his situation.
Wahu reveals that her husband’s condition brought her closer to God. She told Word Is that she resorted to praying and singing as she felt Nameless’ healing was in the hands of God.
“In the situation where my husband was unwell, I went on my knees because it is not about how popular or how much people love you. Those are not the things that matter. Sometimes God shows you ‘I Am God’ and you just have to come down and say yes You are God and You are everything.
“I resonated with the song because of that space and I guess I can say when my husband was unwell God says he is Jehovah-Rapha the healer. The beautiful thing about God is He doesn’t contradict himself and He doesn’t change. His word is his word,” said Wahu.
The viral kiss which happened during the weekend, left Kenyans with mixed reaction as some showed disgust while others hilariously claimed she just cheated on her husband nameless. Others warned her that she just invited a bunch of diseases to her body.
Her husband on the Nameless was also not left behind as he sent out a loving message to the love of his life, wife and mother of his children. The two have now been married for over 10 years and continue to prove that real love still exists!
Nameless celebrates his wife
Having come from so far, Nameless feels truly blessed to have a super woman in his life. Though we are not sure what he did to celebrate his wife’s 38th birthday, he shared the message below saying;
Nameless’ first meeting with Wahu’s parents is an encounter that most men dread of. Wahu’s father and mother busted Nameless at their daughter’s campus room when they walked in unannounced.
Both Nameless and Wahu were caught unawares by Kagwis impromptu visit. Wahu says the her parents had a habit of dropping in unannounced at her campus.
He couldn’t take off his marvin
Wahu says Nameless broke into a bit of a sweat when her parents found him at her room. She reveals that he couldn’t take off his marvin because he didn’t want his future father and mother-in-law to have a bad impression about him. (Nameless was hiding his dreadlocks).
Below is Wahu’s narration of that awkward meeting at her campus room:
Here are some fun facts about this particular throwback pic that I bet @namelesskenya
Does not remember ?
1) this was taken in my Chiromo campus room
2) by one Mr. Kagwi, otherwise known as my father, who had randomly come to visit me, accompanied by his lovely wife
3) this was the first time that my boyfriend was meeting my parents- (my boyfriend had also just randomly dropped in, so no prior thinking had gone into this)
4) my boyfriend broke into a bit of a sweat…..but couldn’t remove his marvin… because it would reveal the short on- setting dreadlocks that may not be what you want as a first impression on the father of your girlfriend (I guess)
5) my room was small, and seeing that we were running out of sitting space- I, in my infinite wisdom, suggested that I could sit on my boyfriend…. And he needless to say… thought I was nuts!!!! ?? So that idea just died like that ?
6) that’s his “this is awkward” pose….and that’s my “yeah…..this is totally awkward” half smile that looks like I’m chewing on something ??
7) at the end of it all….. My dad did walk me down the Isle…and did put my hand in his. Not with a warning, but with a hug…and so it did end well , despite the awkward beginning ?? . #justthoughtidshare #funnyfondmemory
However, a few hours she shared a new photo flaunting her mum to her social media fans. In the post, she praised her for raising her the right way and also for giving her good advice. She wrote saying;
Wahu Kagwi moves to gospel
After revealing that she was no longer going to sing secular, the lady has been venturing in the gospel industry where she is doing much better.
There is no greater joy than watching your children grow to become wiser in life. For this reason you will find parents flaunting their kids on social media and the latest proud parent is Wahu Kagwi.
Through her Instagram page, the gospel singer shared an amazing heart to heart letter she received from her daughter, Tumiso. In the letter, Tumiso thanked her mum for being the best parent she could ask for; the 11 year old goes on to encourage her mum by telling her that even with 11 years of parenting, she has proven to be a pro at it.
The letter definitely took Wahu by surprise as she was not aware that her baby girl had been monitoring her efforts. This is something you rarely witness when it comes to other kids, but as for Wahu she seems to be raising a responsible soon to be teenager.
Wahu quits secular music
Having abandoned her secular music career, Wahu has now turned to singing and composing gospel songs.
Speaking to DJ Mo in an interview, Wahu Kagwi revealed that she has been saved for a couple of years now and had been waiting for the right moment to change her career.
Since joining the gospel industry Wahu has released one song that has put her at the top of the game and hopefully she will be dropping a new one soon.
As a mother of 2 young girls, Wahu Kagwi recently shared a post telling the youths on the importance of focusing on people their age.
In her post the gospel singer talks about the importance of both young ladies and men coupling up and started from the bottom together. According to Wahu there is joy in knowing that you have worked on your own wealth; instead of interfering with older people who misled them.
Having married the love of her life at a young age, Wahu has preserved and helped build her family. However in the generation we are living in, many Youths prefer finding sponsors to settle down with.
Treat your woman right
She goes on to urge young men to value their women and help them progress in life. This is important since the ones they decide to settle with may be ticket having a successful future. She wrote saying;
We can not confirm whether this is a permanent step or the singer is just sampling gospel music for now. Looking at her social media posts, Wahu has lately been sharing spiritual quotes showing how committed she has been.
Wahu remains among the top female artists in the country. For years she has entertained East African’s through her music before she took some time off to raise her daughters.
She is however back with a bang and just like Size 8, seems like she is slowly moving to the gospel music industry.
The singer was also discharged from hospital and is now slowly recovering from home. His wife also happened to share a post revealing how happy she was to have her husband out of hospital now that he is better.
A post shared by Nameless™ (@namelesskenya) on Oct 9, 2017 at 11:41pm PDT
Wahu Kagwi went on to add that her youngest daughter Nyakio was too excited to an extent of telling everyone including the guards that she had come to take her dad home after 3 weeks of being in hospital.
She wrote saying:
Last Sunday my husband was discharged from hospital. Nyakio told everyone from the hospital security, to the nurses that she has come to take her daddy home ??. Joyful moment for all of us. Grateful for all your prayers and thanking God for his goodness. 1st peter 2:24- by His stripes we were healed.
We from the Ghafla team wish the singer a quick recovery and hopefully expect new projects from him since it has been a while since he released a new song.
Singer Wahu Kagwi is not one to put her private life on social media. For year now she has ensured to keep her family off social media until just recently when she shared a photo hanging out with her two brothers.
The photo shared on her Instagram page has left many talking including Tanzanian singer Jay Dee who added a comment under the photo after Wahu’s funny caption.
Well, she wrote to reveal how much she adored her brothers and went on to say that they always harassed the boys hitting on her when she was young.
Meet my big brothers. When I was young, they harassed any boy I liked…or liked me. I love them to bits!
Jay Dee among other fans were quick to question how they treated Nameless after they discovered the two were in a serious relationship – and without holding back she responded to say that Nameless was also not spared as they grilled him to find out his real intentions towards their baby sister (Wahu).
