When Octopizzo won the Bingwa Awards Comeback Artiste of the Year, he could not have possibly thought that this accolade would have sparked a beef between him and one of Kenya’s top celebrity couples: Nameless and Wahu.
However, when he turned down the award and suggested that it should be handed to Wahu, he sparked off a public disagreement with her husband, Nameless. Telling him off as being a proud and ‘big-headed’ man, Nameless came to the defense of his wife in a heated Instagram post.
It now appears the much publicised beef was the result of a misinterpretation; especially after Octopizzo took to his official social media pages to clarify that he meant Wahu no disrespect.
Accepting the olive branch, Nameless has made a post of his own-effectively putting out the fire that had raged on for the past few days.
According to the Butterflysinger, their love for music and family sparked the public spat: “It’s clear (that) our passion for family and our music led to this misunderstanding with Octo. We had a conversation…and cleared things up. Thanks for understanding my reaction bro.”
When trying to clarify why he went on a rant about the Bingwa Awards on Tuesday, the IvoIvo Ivo hit-maker explained that his issue was with the category he was nominated in-not Wahu. Octopizzo insisted his stand that changes need to me made in Kenya’s awards circuit.
Responding to this, Nameless said: “But I hear you as well and understand your frustration. But we (are) going to make this industry better one step at a time.”
To the Bingwa Awards team, Nameless said: “Bingwa, we appreciate your efforts in recognising artists and their work. And to our fans we appreciate your loyalty and votes. Octopizzo, still a fan, still a friend.”
