Uganda is like my second home – Nameless

Hendrick Ssali,

KARIBU: When he first came to Uganda more than 20 years ago, Nameless was an excited artiste getting his first ride in a limousine. He has since made several visits back here as a friend and artiste but this Sunday will be different for Nameless, real name David Mathenge, as he headlines the revamped Blankets and Wine. Andrew Kaggwa caught up with him for a quick chat.

In the 1990s, Moses Ssali, alias Bebe Cool, and Joseph Mayanja, alias Jose Chameleone, made the trip to Nairobi on stools in a bus corridor, chasing a dream.

At the time, Nairobi was bustling culturally, with some of the best producers and artistes breaking out at the same time. Both Bebe Cool and Chameleone became members of Ogopa DJs outfit.

On the other side of Nairobi, David Mathenge, an architecture student, was working night shifts in the bank.

At that time, he knew he loved music but had no idea how far the whole thing would go. In fact, he loved his architecture more; he would write music for fun; once or twice, he recorded with a friend, but it was all for fun.

Joining the industry

As an introvert, he did not want to perform and never thought about himself as a performer. One time, a friend heard him rap and asked him to put a verse on one of his songs.
