Wahu highlights joys and challenges of raising kids in different generations

Singer Wahu recently shared insights into her enriching journey of motherhood, emphasizing the importance of being a friend to her three daughters rather than just a disciplinarian parent.

Speaking during Bien’s album listening party, the accomplished artist expressed her joy at the privilege of nurturing lives for 17 years.

“Being a mother to an infant is beautiful. I have been a mother for 17 years. Just being given the honor to raise another life is the highlight of the beautiful memories of being a mother again. It is challenging but I love it. I have a teenager, 17 years old, a 10-year-old, and now, 13 months. They are kids of different generations. They all have different issues. It is not that easy transitioning, but I am happy doing it that way,” Wahu shared in the interview.

Wahu emphasized her approach to parenting, stating that she wants her kids to be more friends with her.

“I am friends with my kids, and I also find ways to discipline them. I want to be more friends with them and for them to know that I am there for them more. I wanted them to be better versions of me. I want them to know that I am there for them. When it comes to discipline, I will do that, but of course, a teenager is different from my 10-year-old.”

Asked about her favorite song from Bien’s album, ‘Alusa Why Are You Topless’ Wahu singled out a track dedicated to Bien’s wife, Chiki, expressing a personal connection as a wife herself.

She also humorously put Nameless on the spot, questioning why he had never composed a song featuring her name.

“The song he wrote for his wife, I don’t know if it’s because I am a wife, my husband has no song. The time he was proposing and she said yes, that one is my best. We are really good friends, and he and my husband, have a beautiful relationship and are like a kid brother. There was once they were neighbors, and so they would hang out most of the time.”

In a playful exchange, Wahu turned the tables on Nameless, questioning why he had never created a song featuring her name.

Nameless responded with a smile, “I have done so many songs inspired by my wife. But you know I can’t put your name there.”
