Wahu recalls hilarious labour ward encounter

Singer Wahu Kagwi has opened up about a memorable yet comical experience during the birth of her first child, Tumiso.

In a radio phone call with Bill Miya, Wahu was asked to recall a moment she could never forget in her entire life.

Wahu delved into the labor ward recollection that left her both in pain and amusement.

The mother of three recounted how her husband, fellow artist Nameless, found himself caught between business negotiations and the pain of childbirth.

“I vividly remember when I was giving birth to my first child. I was a new wife, and I was in labor. You guys don’t understand the whole thing. I am in pain, and then my husband, Mr. Mathenge, was there negotiating a deal,” Wahu shared.

Amidst the labor pains, Nameless was engrossed in a crucial discussion regarding a business deal with a telecommunications network in Uganda and even contemplating a tour in Tanzania.

“I grabbed the phone and threw it down,” Wahu continued, expressing her rage at her husband’s divided attention.

Despite the chaos of the moment, Wahu’s husband swiftly collected the phone from under the hospital bed, realizing the gravity of the situation.

He promptly informed the person on the other end that his wife was in labor.

“He collected the phone under the bed inside the labour ward and told the person he was on the phone with, ‘excuse me, my wife is in labour’.

“The other guy asked him, ‘What are you doing on the phone when your wife is in labor?'” Wahu chuckled.

Reflecting on the incident, Wahu emphasized her need for support and comfort during the intense experience of childbirth.

“All I needed was his support and some rubbing on my back. I was not understanding,” she admitted.

However, Wahu noted that such a scenario never recurred, as both she and Nameless navigated the waters of parenthood and marriage together.

“He has never done that again and we were all new in parenthood and marriage.”

The couple has raising three girls.
