The world pushed us to have a son—Nameless

Renowned musician David Mathenge, famously known as Nameless, has shared insights into how he and his wife, Wahu, navigated societal pressure regarding the gender of their youngest child, Shiro.

Speaking at an event where Sai Pharmaceuticals Kenya Limited unveiled the Mathenges as the official brand ambassadors for the upgraded NipNap Premium Baby Diapers, Nameless shed light on their family journey.

Before publicly revealing their pregnancy, Nameless disclosed that they had already undergone scans confirming they were expecting a baby girl. Despite widespread speculation favoring a baby boy, Nameless and Wahu remained steadfast in their knowledge.

“When we announced our pregnancy, we were certain it was a girl, even though everyone was convinced it would be a boy,” Nameless revealed.

For the Mathenges, Nameless emphasized that their priority has always been the health of their children, irrespective of gender.

“It’s not about gender; it’s about a healthy baby,” Nameless stressed.

The proud father of three expressed that raising daughters doesn’t diminish his role as a parent.

“A child you can nurture. We were thrilled that Shiro arrived healthy and radiant, just as she is. I am always elated to be a father to girls,” he added.

Discussing his decision to feature on the packaging of the NipNap Premium Baby Diapers, Nameless underscored the importance of shared parenting responsibilities.

“I chose to be part of the campaign to convey the message that raising a child is not solely the mother’s responsibility but a joint effort of both parents being actively involved in their children’s lives,” he stated.

Speaking about their collaboration with NipNap, Wahu expressed her joy, saying: “Partnering with NipNap has been an amazing journey. They supported our reality show, This Love, and we’ve built a strong relationship together. I’m excited to work with them.”

At the launch, Mr. Rajiv Joshi, the CEO of SPKL’s Hygiene Division, expressed excitement about partnering with Nameless and Wahu for the rebrand.

“We conduct rigorous testing to ensure the safety, performance, and quality of our products, surpassing industry standards. By incorporating customer feedback and leveraging cutting-edge technologies, we have meticulously refined every aspect to exceed expectations. For this partnership, we sought the best in the industry.”

The colorful event at Movenpick Nairobi was attended by Nameless and Wahu’s close family members.
