Secular-turned-gospel Kenyan songbird Wahu says Nameless’ life-threatening condition was a major turning point in her life.
Nameless was last October diagnosed with subarachnoid hemorrhage. Small blood vessels in the brain had ruptured and blood had leaked into the area between the brain and tissue covering the brain.
The condition can lead to permanent brain damage or death if not treated promptly.
Fortunately for the father of the two, surgery was not required and he only needed to be closely monitored in the High Dependency Unit (HDU).
Wahu says that her husband’s condition brought her closer to God.
“In the situation where my husband was unwell, I went on my knees because it is not about how popular or how much people love you. Those are not the things that matter. Sometimes God shows you ‘I Am God’ and you just have to come down and say yes You are God and You are everything.
“I resonated with the song because of that space and I guess I can say when my husband was unwell God says he is Jehovah-Rapha the healer. The beautiful thing about God is He doesn’t contradict himself and He doesn’t change. His word is his word.”
“Life sometimes is not [about] how much you have really acquired. It’s about doing what God created you to do. Without Him you can’t really move on,” Wahu added.
The singer is currently riding high on the wave of her new release, “My Everything”, which is about a woman who sought God’s intervention when her husband and father of her children suddenly fell ill, on an ordinary morning as the family went about their normal morning routines.
