Veteran Kenyan artists Wahu and Nameless are a true symbol of love. In an entertainment industry ravaged by cheating scandals, divorce, and betrayal, their marriage has withstood the test of time.
Back in the day, the two were celebrities in their own rights. Wahu was best known for her songs; ‘Niangalie’, ‘Liar’ and ‘Sitishiki’ which propelled her into stardom. While Nameless was best known for his jams; ‘Salari’, ‘Butterfly’ and ‘Inspire’.
Wahu and Nameless are more than just artists, they are graduates and entrepreneurs. They both graduated from the University of Nairobi. Wahu graduated with a Degree in Mathematics while Nameless graduated with a Bachelor of Architectural Studies.
The two tied the knot in September 2005 but their love story goes back to their college days. The couple has been blessed with two children whom they love and adore. Two of their most memorable jams were dedicated to their daughters. They include; ‘Sweet Love’ by Wahu and ‘Coming Home’ by Nameless.
For the most part, they have kept their love life away from the public and only share simple family snippets on their social media platforms. Last year, the two appeared in ‘The Murayas’ Show’ where they shared their insight on marriage with Size 8 and Deejay Mo who needed some help in their marriage.
This was a rare chance to see the dynamic of their marriage and fans also got to see that it wasn’t always flowers and roses. “When we first got married, we ran into issues because I had my own expectations, I knew what I wanted especially because of how I had seen my dad being a husband,” Wahu said.
15 years later, these two love birds are still enjoying marriage. Recently they blessed their fans with two songs in honor of their love dubbed ‘This Love of Nameless’ and ‘This Love ya Wahu’. The songs were part of a unique project that brought together Wahu and her husband Nameless on a riddim talking about the two extremes of love.

Despite being married for 15 years, these two have kept their passion alive by posting amazing photos on their social media handles captioned with endearing messages.
