“Najua nakaa vibaya, nakaa tu hivi cord ya mic imeanguka, naskia tu I hated that show, nikatoka, nikaenda kwa audience kukaa, at that point niliskia tu mtu amenitap, nikacheki, naona nikarembo hivi, ananiambia, yoh that was a cool performance, am like no, akaniambia it was good, nikasema okay sawa tukaanza kuongea, akaniambia anaitwa Wahu,” Nameless remembered.
The positive affirmations on his performance made him like Wahu, and also worked as a catalyst for them to start conversing.
“Alikuwa na nywele fupi alafu ameeka Gel inakaa inashine ya black, alafu ananiambia show yangu imekuwa poa hata ka najua ilikuwa mbaya, nikamlike tu hapo, So from there tukaanza kuongea kimchezo,”he explained.
Their conversations had good flow and energy, which worked in their favor at the start of knowing each other.
“And we just lit, like we were flowing, I had never flowed like that with a guy, like nacheka unanichekesha, am like Oh My God energy is just bouncing back and forth nicely, I was like I love it,” she reminisced.
