Popular blogger, Cyprian Nyakundi is on it again. In his posts, He has revealed how Wahu trapped Nameless and destroyed his relationship with Eve De Souza.
Nyakundi went ahead and claimed that Wahu had an affair with city billionaire, Chris Kirubi………..
A recent spat between Octopizzo and Kapuka artist Nameless opened fresh wounds on the musician at the centre of all of this. Wahu who has been a recording artist for over 16 years now is yet to release a single album. Let that sink in before we proceed.
The question to ask is, just who is this Wahu Kagwi? Many know her as the woman who “trapped” Nameless who at the time was said to be head over heels in love with Capital FM radio DJ Eve De Souza, in-order to remain relevant in media and social circles in full knowledge that her talent was questionable.
A smart move at the time considering the onslaught on the institution of marriage by media elements like Caroline Mutoko which left musicians like Sheila Mwanyigah aka Nikki still chasing white old men uptil today, despite her approaching 45 years. In search of the elusive dollar, Mwanyigah dated rapper Prezzo at the height of her career, something that says more about her than him as she is ten years older than him.
But how did Wahu get lost in music? Why didn’t her hits gain traction? Why were her concerts empty?
The answer is simple; male-bashing.
Kicking off her disastrous music career was the song “Sitishiki” targeting some rich unknown man, who might have been using his position in society to pursue her. During that transitional era between Moi and Kibaki, there were very few moneyed people in Nairobi, so observers were quick to link businessman Chris Kirubi, an allegation she later denied.
Then came another song “Kibaowao” also targeting men that were not doing so well financially one that performed terribly on the charts. Her only redemption was “Sweet Love” dedicated to her daughter, meaning that throughout her career, Wahu has only released 3 songs.
But what was this obsession with male-bashing? There was the Caroline Mutoko-era where it became fashionable to date well-to-do married men and to look at single men from the lenses of success as defined by material parameters, the gospel according to Caroline Mutoko.
The Jubilee regime that has created policies which only retain wealth to the selected-few, is slowly taking us back to the Moi-era where only a few men had money, and thus young women would only glorify and pursue them. Njoki Chege has emerged as Caroline Mutoko’s understudy with her consistent taunts at the upcoming middle-tier men, shaming any effort and encouraging women her age to be pseudo-sluts chasing married men and be associated with success. It’s an all too familiar cycle.
